Those who know me well will testify that I simply do NOT drink water. Yes, it's terrible and I am not exaggerating when I say that I can't remember the last time I had a sip of water.
My choice of beverages are coffee (4-6 cups a day), and Coke. My ignorance of the importance of water has existed for a while.. until I came across this website - waterandtoilets.org
WHAT IS IT?
"783 Million people do not have access to clean water while 2 Billion people do not have access to a proper toilet. "
Waterandtoilets.org aims to reduce these shocking numbers by making clean water and toilets available for less privileged groups starting from Kenya and Sri Lanka.
I DRINK WATER NOW
I can't believe that I have been taking for granted the fact that clean water is so readily available here in Malaysia. The water which used to disgust me because of the "lack of taste", is the same precious water these under privileged communities yearn for. So I hereby pledge to drink water and only water for a week starting from the 21st of March, 2013 to the 27th of March, 2013 to raise awareness about this cause.
MY HUMBLE REQUEST
All I ask, apart from the much needed moral support, is for you to visit the website - www.waterandtoilets.org - and read about the cause and the projects. If it has any effect on you at all, please donate to this cause. Any amount (and every single cent of that amount) will fund water and toilet projects so the less fortunate can at least have the basic necessity - clean water. You can visit http://www.waterandtoilets.org/#!projects/cfvg to view their future projects - this is what you will be contributing to. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support and contribution - together, let's make a difference.
