Would you be shocked if I told you that 1,000 children in your town were going to die in the next 24 hours due to unsafe drinking water unless something was done immediately? What would you do if you also knew that $200 would fix the issue? If you are like most people, you would probably spring into action to help your community, either by donating money or labor to fix the situation. If you live in the northern hemisphere, you are unlikely to run into this scenario. But for many children in the southern hemisphere, death due to unsafe drinking water is a reality.
Even though these children are not in your neighborhood, you can help them by donating to Blue Planet Run Foundation to improve water and sanitation in developing countries.
