Today is Blog Action Day, an annual event focusing on a worldwide problem. This year, the problem being discussed is the lack of clean water worldwide. Nearly 1 billion people – about one in eight – have no access to clean water. Every week, about 42,000 people die because of the problem.
A donation of $20 can provide clean water for one person for up to 20 years. To learn how you can get involved, check out the website of charity:water.
