For those of you who have followed this blog for some time, you know this is the time of year I ask you for money. For the past 3 years, I’ve sponsored campaigns through Charity:Water to provide wells and potable drinking water to 10’s of thousands of people in Africa, India, and Southeast Asia.
You’ve been very generous in your support and in your giving. Not just to this campaign, but I get notes from dozens of you on your own efforts. For some it’s providing meals for the homeless in your communities. Others it’s contributing time and money to help in animal shelters. For many it’s a walk, run, ride swim for cancer, veterans, MS, or some other worthy cause. Still others are contributing in schools and literacy programs.
Thinking of and giving to others is what makes us great. It’s where Each Of Us Can Make A Difference.
Please find some time during the Holiday Season and throughout the coming year to find a way to give. What we get, in the process, is very precious.
I’d love to have you support this campaign. Charity:Water is a fantastic organization and has made a great impact. 100% of your donation goes to providing wells and potable water to those who struggle to live every day. As with previous years, I will match your donations up to $2500.
Please take one more step in giving. Forward a link to this post to friends, family, and colleagues to ask them to join us in Making A Difference. Tweet this post, put it in Facebook, LinkedIn, Google +. Collectively we can have a huge impact.
Thanks for your contributions and support this year. Thanks for Making A Difference.
