  The year we are once again partnering with World Vision Canada to discuss another important issue: Water.  Globally 663 million people do not have access to clean water.  We take for granted how easy it is to access water in our daily lives.  We go to the bathroom, the kitchen even out outdoor taps in the summer to access water quickly and easily.  That is not the case for millions of families around the world.   World Vision Canada has taken on a 5 year project to invest $400 million to help tackle the global water crisis.  The goal is to provide accessibility to clean water!

World Vision asked a few Canadian influencers to take the World Vision Water Challenge and see if their families could go with minimal use of water in one day… one day.  You can read more about how Merry Spooner Kuchle of Merry About Town did the one tap all day challenge with her family or how Tammy of In R Dream did the World Vision water challenge with her family of six! Read more about her experience here: Opening Our Eyes. A couple more will also have stories to share before the part

We all have the ability to make a change even in incremental ways.  We would love for you to join us to learn more about The World Vision Water Challenge May 3rd at 8 p.m. EST.

A few more facts about World Vision Canada Clean Water gifts:

  • Clean Water gifts range from $25 to $50 a month and they make a dramatic impact.
  • Every minute a child under five dies from diarrhea related to contaminated water.
  • Children lead healthier lives and child death rates dramatically decrease due to a decline in diseases caused by unclean water, poor sanitation and lack of hygiene

  • Sustainability is a goal for WVC projects.

They are here, they are here.  I could not be more excited about my special gifts.  I have once again given my family Christmas gifts (#MeaningfulGifts) from World Vision Canada and I could not be any happier!  I wrote last week about deciding to making my donations count by working again with World Vision Canada. I love the idea that my donations will be matched by the Government of Canada and other partners to make them bigger gifts than what I just contributed.  So I wisely chose my gifts and donated money toward the Helping the Syrian Crisis, Textbooks for Children and Feed Children and Families for 30 days.

Today I received the Christmas cards and the gift cards that I can put under the tree or mail off to my family to let them know that this is how I chose to gift them this year.  I love that each donations comes with a card that I can personalize as well as an explanation card that lets my recipient know what the donations is.

The card lets me know that I have given the gift of knowledge, hope and so much more!  This gift impacts thousand upon thousands of children and families in over 50 countries.  You can make a lasting impact when you decided to give a meaningful gift.  Did you want to learn more about the work that World Vision Canada is doing?  You can join us for a Twitter Party where we will be discussing the different gifts and their impact on communities throughout Canada and the World.
