People Water- Help Save a Life

 This is People Water. They are doing some amazing things! People Water is all about helping others have a better life. Their mission is to help people receive clean water!

 For every bottle of water purchased they give that same amount of water to someone in need!! That's amazing! I support People Water all the way!

Some Statistics for ya:
  • 783 Million People do not have clean water world wide.
  • An American taking a five-minute shower uses more water than the average person in a developing country slum uses for an entire day. 
  • In developing countries, as much of 80% of illnesses are linked to poor water and sanitation conditions.
  • Half of the world's hospital beds are filled with people suffering from a water-related disease
  • Nearly 1 out of every 5 deaths under the age of 5 worldwide is due to a water-related disease 

These numbers are increasing more and more each day! I am just shocked at these stats... We need your help to get clean water to these people!

This is my brother Cody Barker. He is one of the founders of People Water.

Here are some things People Water is doing to help:

 Here is the trip they did in Ghana, where they provided this well. It was nice to have Jef and Emily help out as well. They also fixed many wells in the area that were not able to produce clean water. Cody took a class where he learned to fix broken wells... They also teach someone from the village to take care of the well, so this doesn't happen again. This is so much less expensive... so this way People Water can help more villages and bring clean water to more people! Think about how hard it would be to not have water at all....but to have water and then have it taken away is just unimaginable. 

They have also been to Haiti, India. and Nicaragua... They are planning to do this each year!

And Hello! They also have really cute shirts... The proceeds go to helping people get clean water.. duh best way to shop!

These are special bottles People Water has that were designed by some really great people, who are trying to spread the word.

I'm giving you all a challenge to help someone in need today! PEOPLE WATER
