I have a friend who will be celebrating the second anniversary of turning 29 (aka - she's turning 30 people). Instead of asking for gifts this year, she is asking that everyone donate to charity:water. She wants to bring clean drinking water sources to places in need to improve the lives of the people, especially women and children who fetch water over long distances.
I think this is brilliant.
Unless you've been living under a rock for the past week, you know that there are lots of places in the world that can use aid, especially the Philippines that were devastated by a huge typhoon. If you would like to help with aid to the Philippines or other places in need, please take a wander over to the Impact Your World site on CNN or WELS Kingdom Workers. If there are other sites you would like to suggest, please add them in the comments.
