$1 Provides Clean Drinking Water for One Year

I’ll cut to the chase: I would like each one of you reading this blog to donate $1 to Blood Water Mission. Better yet, I would like each one of you to ask ten of your closest friends to give you a $1 each and then take your $11 and donate it to Blood Water Mission.

Some of you might remember our campaign at Wheaton College entitled “I Support Meera.” Meera is a native missionary in India and in one day we raised over $1000 to full support Meera’s entire life’s missionary work (enough to get his ministry started and become self-sustaining). We did it by asking every college student on campus for $1 a piece. The power of many small acts can move mountains.

In a similar fashion, the community group I meet with from Mosaic has decide to adopt the goal of raising $1000 for Blood Water Mission, an organization dedicated to providing clean drinking water to individuals and entire villages in Africa. You can visit the website and read the details and what not, but the object is simple, please donate $1.

If you end up being ambitious and doing it on your own, email me and let me know how much you raised and donated.

Otherwise pass me a dollar next time you see me or use the Google Checkout button below (Google doesn’t charge any transaction fees right now, so $1 off your credit card is a dollar straight to Blood Water Mission).

  1. How cool! We just finished raising money for BWM. It began as an extension of our yearly mission trip to an Indian Reservation. This year when we go to Pine Ridge we are doing an African safari theme and will be taking time each day to tell the children there about the desperate needs in Africa. Then we will ask them to bring an offering for BWM. Pine Ridge is one of the poorest places in American but even they can reach out to others who are in even greater need. In fact, I’m betting we will be humbled and surprised by what they will give. We then asked our church to do the Two Weeks of Sacrifice to raise more money for BWM. We raised $766.00 that way. I am also asking a local resturant to give their profits from soft drink sales for one day to BWM. So far that isn’t going too well – They will not return my calls but I’m still trying.
