Making A Diffrence Blogging | Blogging For Charity

Today Jeff Goins wrote an inspirational post talking about the need for water and our help as bloggers for getting the word out so we can help with this cause. Jeff stated that currently 42,000 people a day because lack of water. This is an outstanding and huge number of deaths that can be saved with proper water generation in or around these areas.

So what can we do to help these people who need water. Jeff is trying to get as many people to donate $20 or any amount that they can to help raise money for getting water to the needy people. By visiting Jeff's post on Water you will have an opportunity to donate and give back. Did you know that we use more water in a typical shower, then residents of countries that have limited to no access of water, uses in ONE DAY?

So my Goal is to be able to help every country in Africa first to Gain access to a deep ground well for that country. We will first see how the first well will go. Understand that in these countries water is like gold so there might be fights just for the use of water. How can we go about ensuring that everyone has access and how can we create jobs also. Teaching local citizens how to fix any problems to the local water systems and also building piping for water use in houses would be beneficial.

With a deep well the cost usually runs around $30,000 to drill a well that deep.  Diesel powered generators will be used to extract the needed water so it can be divided up. With a well that size the water can help upwards of 3,000 people. So to help 1,000,000 Citizens of Africa we would have to raise $90,000,000 for  350 wells and the education of local citizens. Big number huh? It is a truly doable number if we can find a way to do it.

Coming soon will be a Worldwide day to help create donations for this goal. Yes, many people will find it hard to earn this much money and not try, but we are sure this will be a hit. We will list credible organization already doing work in these countries or we may even look for Angel investors to create and Launch our own drilling expedition.

So if you have not checked out Jeff Goins Water Post do so now. It is thought provoking and well worth the time to read.
