This year’s Blog Action Day is about ‘Water’, so that’s what I am here to talk about…
When I heard about this topic, it immediately brought to mind the lack of water – fresh, clean, drinkable water – for so many people in our world. In fact, this lack of clean water is killing too many people, and especially children, who don’t have the ability to resist the germs being spread through their water.
What I would like to focus on here is an Australian organisation I have heard about who are using their business to provide safe drinking water to many places that currently don’t have any.
This company is called Thank You Water. It started a few years ago when 5 young Australians realised they could make a difference in someone’s life by providing clean water… They did that by starting up their own bottled water company, which uses 100% of the profits from the sale of the bottles to fund projects in countries where they don’t have access to clean water. Their projects have already made a difference to over 1,000 people – and they have only just started!
You can read more about what they are doing on their website: http://www.thankyouwater.org

This story just proves to me that if you have something that you care deeply about, you too can make a real difference! You don’t have to be older, you don’t have to be rich… You just have to be passionate enough to really care…
What are you passionate about? Is there something that you wish you could change? Go on… You Can Do It!
