I just pledged 36 hours to Engineers in Action’s 2018 #CleanWaterFast and need your help.
For 36 hours, I’ll abstain from everything. Everything except the pure, unpolluted, easily-accessible, life-giving water that we so often take for granted. In some countries, clean water is considered a luxury, with many rural children and families consuming unsanitary water that causes illness. Engineers in Action works to change all that, and I want to help them succeed.
I hope to raise $500 before my 36 hour fast October 4-6. Will you support me?
Water is not a luxury. Help me make that a reality for two entire villages in rural South America by donating to my fundraiser now.
