Blood Water Mission

I’m tapped out!!! Water that is… I’m on day 7 of drinking Tap water! I’m doing the Blood Water Mission! What?!? you may be asking, is a “Blood Water Mission” aka 40 DAYS OF WATER... Its 40 days of drinking water (which is SUPER easy for me because that is all I drink) BUT I will not purchase and or drink any bottled water…The Catch, I’m keeping track of all the money I would have spent on bottled/filtered water and helping to build clean water projects for communities in Uganda!! So easy, at the end of the week I tally up what I would have spent on bottled water and send a check to Blood Water Mission. **Confession: I’m so bad with “mailing” things I think next week I will just pay online. SIMPLE! So for those of you that are trying to break a soda or coffee habit this may be right up your ally!! I’ll add the rules below and it’s not too late to join! With my busy/crazy and super hectic schedule this was SO easy to fit into my everyday life! One little change and I’m making a difference in other people’s lives, Groovy! I hope you all will jump on board!!

Give Up Beverages
To be clear: we’re not asking you to fast for Forty days. We’re just asking you to ditch the morning coffee and o.j., leave out the lunchtime soda, and cancel the evening beverage in lieu of clean water from the tap. By sacrificing your daily routine, you will make a difference in the daily routine of a person in Africa.
It’s a big commitment to not drink anything but water for Forty days. But from February 13th to March 30th, that’s exactly what we’re asking you to do. It’s a lot easier if you do it with other people like your friends or family. Remember, Sundays are feast days! You get to enjoy your favorite beverages one day out of the week, which will remind you just how much you miss them the other 6 days.
Be sure to visit the webstore to order a new Blood:Water bottle to remind you to head to the tap!
By giving up what you’d normally drink in exchange for the water from your tap you can save that money to help build clean water projects for communities in Uganda!
