Join Mom Bloggers for Social Good in celebrating World Water Day on March 22nd. As I watch my 2-year-old run to the sink, pull out her little stool cup in hand and filling up her cup with water I cannot help but think of other little girls and boys and whole families that are without suitable drinking water. According to UNWater.org,
There are 7 billion people to feed on the planet today and another 2 billion are expected to join by 2050. Statistics say that each of us drinks from 2 to 4 litres of water every day, however most of the water we ‘drink’ is embedded in the food we eat: producing 1 kilo of beef for example consumes 15,000 litres of water while 1 kilo of wheat ’drinks up’ 1,500 litres.
When there are people around the world that have to live without food and their water resources are quickly depleting it is hard to look the other way. This is why World Water Day is so important. World Water Day looks to bring attention to how important freshwater is and the management of those freshwater resources.
Help me and others spread the word Water.org has a list of ways you can let others know about World Water Day. You can make a donation of $25 or just simply change your Twitter background or your Facebook timeline cover.
