-Almost a billion people on the planet don’t have access to clean drinking water. Unsafe water and a lack of basic sanitation cause 80% of all disease and kill more people than all forms of violence, including war.

-If you donate, check with your employer to see if they match funds. You could double or triple your donation. Yeah, I said it.
-It’s tax deducable. I ain’t no financialist, but if i wuz, i’d be all like, deducing these from taxes for phat benjies.
Dammit. I still feel guilty. So I just donated another $25 to Malaria No More. Mosquito nets. BOOM.
