Let’s Change the World ~ One Drop at a Time

By Anovelsource @thenovellife

Imagine a life where you must walk miles in which to buy water that may or may not be clean.

A life in which there are no toilets, only the side of the road in which to relieve yourself.

A life where you watch your child wither away from drinking dirty water. . .

A life where it’s drink the water that will kill you or die from dehydration.

A few months ago I heard of the organization WATER.org and after researching the non-profit, I decided to lend my support in all ways possible.  If you’ve been reading The Novel Life for any amount of time you’ve probably heard me mention working in the non-profit field for over 20 years, of which I loved just about every moment. . .well, except the fact that it was desperately needed.  So now, when I donate to a cause, I look into the financials, the success stories, the over-all picture in order to see if its one I feel good about supporting.  Water.org surpasses.

And now, I’ve come upon another organization that gives even more incentive to donate ~ You give = You get.

Causora has teamed up with some fabulous merchants, both online and local, to provide vouchers equal to the amount donated.  For example, another favorite of mine, Novica, a National Georgraphic sponsored global marketplace that connects artisans with customers, is on the Causora merchant list.  So when I donate $20 through Causora to Water.org I get a credit of $20 to spend at Novica!  A fabulous way to be “rewarded” for philanthropy!

When I first looked into Causora I thought ‘well, I can just donate to water.org and bypass Causora’ but then I realized in my budget I already donate a percentage to certain organizations and then I also have a certain amount I put towards gifts each month.  Like a lightbulb going off above my head it hit me that I could also put that gift line item towards Water.org through Causora and end up donating even more each month ~ something important and close to my heart!

I’d like to invite you to join me in supporting Water.org through Causora by way of the link in my sidebar.  And then feel great about doing good and be rewarded on top of that!  My goal for this fundraiser is $500.  Help me reach that amount and surpass it, while providing clean water to the over a billion people in the world who are in dire need.

This post was written as part of a sponsored campaign for Causora. All opinions are my own.
