Today is my birthday, we all have that special day to celebrate in so many different ways. Some of us love the attention, while others look at it as just another day. No matter how you feel about this milestone, you can use it to change the world.
I read about a boy and an organization called Charity Water, where millions of people in developing countries walk nearly two hours a day to collect water. The families take the risk of the water not being clean, bringing it home only to choose between drinking, bathing, cooking or washing. Some of the water made people sick, and it still was not enough to go around. So the boy decided to help by giving up his birthday gifts in exchange for family and friends donating to help build clean water projects.
This simple act of kindness has already raised millions of dollars to give clean water. This year, I decided to donate my birthday. Take some time and check out Charity Water, they might inspire you to do the same.
