Nearly one billion people lack access to clean water.
Yep, you read that right.
One billion people lack clean water for drinking, for hygiene, for basic sanitation.
Water.org, founded by the ever adorable and all around nice guy Matt Damon, wants to do something about that. And so do we. For all of us at Discount Filter Store, the issue of clean water is personal.
Clean water is our passion, but honestly we never thought about clean water as a women's issue until we started following Water.org on Twitter. (You can find them at @Water. You can follow @DiscountFilters here).
It turns out that for women all over the world, the issue of clean water is personal. Really personal. Check out this infographic:
Are you shocked? We are.
It's Mothers Day this Sunday, so lots of us are thinking about the women in our lives. (Have you bought a card yet? Skip the line at the store and honor your mom with one of these beautiful cards!)
Better yet, honor women everywhere by getting involved. Donate your voice, start a fundraiser, share this post, make a difference. Because it's not okay that 4000 mothers will lose a child to water-borne illnesses this Mothers Day.
Let's do something about it!
