One day. One Issue. Thousands of voices.
Blog Action Day.
3700+ bloggers have come together to empower a nation one ONE topic.
A huge thanks to Bish for letting me know this was going on. I use this blog to talk about writing, my life, my woes, my struggles, but I never take time to take a look at the bigger picture. My blog has grown and with that I should join a force that is worth fighting.
What does the world talk about online?
GADGETS HANDBAGS BOOKS WRITING LIFE FRIENDS TV SHOWS HOLIDAYS
What if, on October 15th, the same thing is talked about EVERYWHERE.
Something that effects all of us.
Something that can fuel for life, or cause death.
Water. Why Water?
Because almost a BILLION people don't have access to clean water. Because every week 42000 people die from unsafe water. Because clear water could become the SCARCEST resource of the 21st century.
Water is a Health Issue.
Water is a Human Rights Issue.
Water is a Global Issue.
Children: Every week, nearly 38,000 children under the age of 5 die from unsafe drinking water and unhygienic living conditions.
Polluted Oceans: Not only is pollution bad for the environment, it’s also expensive! Death and disease caused by polluted coastal waters costs the global economy $12.8 billion a year.
Water & Poverty: A lack of water contributes to poverty, with parents and children too ill or too busy collecting water to go to school and work.
So that's what I learned. I'm a lot more knowledgeable because of this. To visit other blogs and learn more about the shortage of water feel free to stop by Blog Action.
