Cheers! To Clean Water... to Adventure... to Life!
"...I'm trying to leave the places I pass through a little bit better than I found them" - Jon Rose, Waves for Water founder
This fundraiser is completely out of my comfort zone - on so many levels - but what better way to start a year of solo travel around the world with something that pushes me beyond my known limits?! To be frank, I haven't been contributing much to non-profits other than the Red Cross over the past few years, so to select a foundation was somewhat cumbersome.
I spent time reading, researching, discussing + contemplating the appropriate non-profit to fundraise for... and then as fate has it, my neighbor told me about something his friend started, Waves for Water, while hanging out on my final evening as a San Clemente resident.
With further research and contemplation (naturally), as well as watching video after video they produced about their efforts (and the subsequent waterworks, no pun intended;), I am honored to raise awareness and funds for W4W. Through grassroots efforts, W4W aids in delivering clean + sustainable water to areas lacking access. They also provide relief for natural disasters worldwide and travel to local communities to help them rebuild and rebound.
It is my intention to volunteer with them while I'm on the road! In the meantime, though, I hope to support the regions of the world I'll be traveling to, which don't often have access to clean water (i.e. Nepal, India, Indonesia, Burma, etc.).
Of course, no pressure to donate, but I've been blessed with this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to travel and broaden my horizons, and your support for me would be evident through extending it to W4W :)
Much love and all the blessings to you + your loved ones! Shanti shanti!
