tahnan had a brilliant idea:I did rockstar arms when someone in JL's comments mentioned UMCOR. Because I am so !Methodist.
(paraphrased from his post)
For every day my city has to go without drinkable water, I hereby pledge $1 to a charity that helps bring drinkable water to places with actual water problems. I pledge a minimum of of $20. According to The Water Project, "every $10 donated provides 1 person with clean water for 10 years", and that seems like a fair tradeoff, doesn't it?
Join me. Make our "tragedy", by which I mean "minor inconvenience for a week", into someone else's funding for decent hygiene and infrastructure.
Boost the signal. Pass it on.
Does anyone know of a high-quality, ethical, sustainable water philanthropy? I know that water projects, in particular, are plagued by sustainability problems once the grant money runs out and the philanthropists wander off. There's been one recommendation so far for Deep Springs International.
