As you have hopefully noticed, I finally added my Social Vibe badge. If you haven’t noticed it yet, you can see it on the main home page just below the Twitter feed. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Social Vibe, it’s a simple concept. You, dear readers, do short, free activities like answering short polls or watching short videos and the sponsoring organizations make donations to the chosen charity. It’s an easy way to kill a few minutes and do some good!
My selected charity is Charity: Water. Did you know that 1 in 8 people in the world don’t have access to clean drinking water? Unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation is the cause of 80% of all diseases in the world and kills 4,500 children every day. Charity: Water is dedicated to addressing the issue in the most simple way – work with partners in over 16 countries to dig freshwater wells where there aren’t any, create rainwater catchments, and install sand filters to ensure water sources stay unpolluted. Another reason I love Charity: Water is not just their mission but its implementation – 100% of the money raised goes directly to the project.
So, please, take a few minutes to check out my Social Vibe badge and help raise funds for clean water. For more information on Charity: Water, check out their FAQ page here.
