We at Terra Alert are participating in Blog Action Day with an important reminder about the importance of providing everyone with clean and safe water. Please visit the Blog Action Day website here: http://blogactionday.change.org/

Imagine walking miles in sweltering heat while carrying heavy and burdensome loads just so you and your family can partake in something many of us take for granted: having safe clean water to drink.

This new PSA from   http://www.charitywater.org/ features Jennifer Connelly dragging around a large fuel can to Central Park containing questionable water so her children can have something to drink. This video is an attempt to help the more privileged of us understand the true measure of a plight that effects all too many.

According to CharityWater "one in eight people in our world don’t have access to the most basic of human needs. Something we

can’t imagine going 12 hours without."


CharityWater invites you to "put yourself in their shoes. Follow them on their daily journey. Carry 80 pounds of water in yellow fuel cans. Dig with their children in sand for water. Line up at a well and wait 8 hours for a turn."

Charity water's goal is to provide people with "Things like freshwater wells, rainwater catchments and sand filters."

Please visit their site and contribute in any way you can. http://www.charitywater.org/
