What’s it worth to you? What’s it worth that you can go to your tap, refrigerator, local store or vending machine and get clean water?
The $1.00 plus you spend at Starbucks, Circle K, QT?
Every day we have access to clean water. Water that is safe for us to drink and cook with. But around the world every day millions of people don’t have access to clean water. The are vulnerable to disease and death. They trek miles to the nearest sources of water and trek home carrying 40-pound jugs of water that will likely make them sick.
You may be wondering, what can I do?
You can help. You can give someone water for Christmas.
Today I am joined by six wonderful ladies. We are blogging for water. You have the opportunity to give back. To help bring clean water to those that don’t have it.

Can you believe Christmas is 14 days away??
This week has been slightly crazy.
It’s been long.
Thankfully it is now Friday, 12:55pm. My day is over half over.
Between head splitting headaches, a late night at work, hip & back pain that refuses to let up, I am grateful to see Friday 4 pm on the horizon.
Just a preview of the next couple weeks.
This coming Wednesday is Blog of Water. I am being joined by six ladies. I am looking forward with anxiousness to what God will do.
The other days I’m planning to record Joy. This week I’ve struggled to find joy in things. My heart just wants to camp out in a dark room. So this next week I plan to be intentional. I already have one for Monday.
The week after that I have a series. One I’ve been looking forward to for weeks! And a giveaway will be involved!!
I think this photo is hilarious and wanted to share it since it sort of fits in with the season. Earlier this year Shawn and I had taken a weekend trip up north. Our last day there we were having breakfast and I saw this gentleman on his laptop. So tell me who do YOU think he looks like? He apparently loses his winter Christmas weight fairly quickly. 😉
I really am living the American Dream. I have a great job. “Own” my house. Happily married with two dogs.
I can with in reasonable limits pretty much buy myself anything, my family anything they want for Christmas. I’ve been blessed beyond my ability to understand.
In that, in realizing and not taking for granted all that God has blessed me with, He’s opened my eyes to those who don’t have.
So this year for Christmas I want to give, with a heart that wants and expects nothing in return.
On December 15th, 10 days before Christmas, I am going to blog for water. And I’m looking for as many people as will join me. People who will take one day from their traditional blogging to raise money for clean water.
Do you realize 90% of the 42,000 deaths that occur every week are from drinking dirty water. And not just dirty…disease ridden.
So here’s the deal. If you are interested in blogging with me email me at prudy at prudychick.com.
You can also help spread this request by tweeting: I’m going to blog for water w/@PrudyChick on Dec. 15. Will you join us? (Benefiting @CharityWater) http://bit.ly/d9MAvI.
