The Weather - It's Cyclical

I still think Joe Bastardi is on to something.

Is it possible...just possible...that all this weather craziness is part of a natural cycle? Let's see if the data verifies.

Well Wishes for Christmas

Have you ever been thirsty? I mean REALLY thirsty??

Until I went to Catalyst 2010, I didn't spend too much time thinking about water. When we're thirsty, we flip a handle or push a button or even grab another bottle of water. When we're dirty, we twist a shower knob. When we use the bathroom - water's just there for the taking.

But for a billion people on the planet, it's not. Millions of women and children have to walk hours each day to get water from muddy ponds and rivers. And much of that water is infested with parasites and leeches. In fact, 80% of all diseases in the world are caused by unsafe drinking water and lack of sanitation.

Here are the facts:

  • $20 means one person can get clean water for 20 years.
  • $250 means two families of six can get clean water.
  • $5,000 means clean water for a community of 250.
After Catalyst 2010, I decided to start a campaign to help by getting involved with charity:water.

The cool thing about charity: water is that they spend 100% of the money I raise directly on the water projects. Even better, when projects are complete, every dollar is tied to a village and all the wells are posted on Google Earth.

My goal is to raise $5,000 by Christmas to build a well in a developing nation!

Will you help? If you would like to help, simply click on the image below and make a donation. Even better, help me spread the word by "liking" my campaign on Facebook and sharing it on Twitter.

If only 250 of us donate $20, we can provide a well to a village of 250.

Well Wishes for Christmas
