J "Juice" Vernon
I am thrilled to have an opportunity to bring clean water to village people in Africa. Ten years ago, my mom, sister and I sponsored a young child named Tiekero. In the past 10 years we have contributed in a very distant way and have helped make a difference in his life. Seeing the pictures he sent every year, really allowed me to see the difference such a small donation once a month made for him. Understanding at a very young age that there are so many people less fortunate around the world has allowed me to feel true compassion for those in need. My older Brother "Anthony" & his wife "Lisa" got involved with the amazing foundation "Raincatcher.org" last year and were able to provide clean drinking water for a number of villages in Uganda. Now they have opened the door to an incredible opportunity! Together with "Raincatcher", I am traveling to Africa in August 2013 to see first hand the difference clean water will make. Raincatcher has the least expensive, most sustainable and easy to implement solution to bring clean water to areas with huge unmet need. Using technology similar to dialysis, bacteria and sediment are filtered out leaving the water clean.
Something I've always told people who complain or feel bad for themselves is "Just think of the millions of people in the world who have it a million times worse then you" well I was wrong, there's even more people!
Did you know over 1.5 billion people on earth don't even have access to clean drinking water? This is crazy, and I want to make a difference! Please help me help the over 5000 children under the age of 5 who die every day because they are drinking dirty contaminated water. Even though these numbers seem big, a small donation will make a real difference in the life of one person. $50.00 will supply a half million gallons of safe water!...$100.00 will provide clean water for an entire village! (that's 1,000,000 gallons of clean water). Never before "Raincatcher" has the money you donate gone so far and saved so many lives.
Please help by making a donation today. Anything you can do to help spread the word will make a big difference as well, sharing on Facebook, Twitter or emailing friends and family. I know there are a lot of great causes out there and I am so grateful for your support.
