World Water Day - What It Means & How you can help

Today is "World Water Day" an internationally recognized observance of the World's water crisis that grew out of the 1992 UN Conference on Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro.

In recognition of the day, I would like to point your attention to two projects at GiveMeaning that are building water-wells in African countries.

The first is an initiative that is very grass-roots started by a guy from Victoria, BC who has been building wells in developing countries for some time now. You can see his project here

The second is an initiative supporting Lifewater Canada, a very small grass-roots charity doing great work in Liberia. You can see their project here

Please consider donating to one or both of these projects and encouraging your friends to do the same.

Also, check out and join us in one of the many walks happening this weekend. Me and a few of the other GiveMeaning team members will be walking in Vancouver.
