What would you do…
… if the only drinking water you had access to made you or your children dangerously sick?
But you don’t have even a chance at life without water. So you would still have to do whatever it took to get it.
Even if that meant that you had to spend hours each day going to get water, instead of earning an income to provide for your family. Even if it meant that you never got an education. Even if it meant risking your life.
Because you don’t have a life without water. Even when the unsafe water you’re forced to drink is your only option.
But what if it wasn’t?
Water Changes Everything
Where we’re over here Brita-ing and bottling and alkalizing and even wasting gallons and gallons of our water down the drain every day in the comfort of our homes, 33% of all families in Cambodia don’t have access to water that is clean enough to not make them sick.
There are 14.8 million people in Cambodia.
33% don’t have access to clean water.
67% don’t have adequate sanitation.
23% are below the poverty line.
Please, watch this video to get a better idea of the terrifying reality these families are facing right now, and what it means to finally have access to clean, safe water.
The bloggers of Village Green Network have teamed up with Charity Water for a campaign to fund access to clean water for Cambodian communities. Since 2006, Charity Water has empowered communities all over the world by providing access to clean water. This can come in the form of building wells, providing filtration systems, or even setting up rainwater catchments. When that happens, the burden of poverty is lessened, education is more accessible, preventable diseases are prevented, and lives are saved—and changed—forever.
When you donate to this Charity Water campaign, 100% of the money will pay for BioSand Filters for families in Cambodia.
For a donation of just $65, you can pay for a BioSand Filter for one family in Cambodia. For a $15 donation, you will change one person’s life by providing them with clean water.
These are natural filters, designed to eliminate 99% of all residential water bacteria. The family who receives the filter will keep it with them, and it will continue supplying them with fresh water for years to come. We’ll even be able to see the communities the filters go to via GPS tracking and photos.
100% of ALL Butter Believer eBook Sales to go to charity:water THIS weekend!
To help our campaign change lives in Cambodia, I’d like to provide a bit of an incentive if you’d like to donate to this cause.
If you purchase either of my ebooks this weekend, Real Food for Real Life: How to Eat Healthy Without Going Completely Crazy; or The Sleep Solution: End Your Insomnia Naturally—100% of the money from your purchase will be donated to our charity:water campaign on Monday.
So, let’s recap:
ALL of your dollars you paid to me, I give our charity:water campaign.
ALL of the dollars given to our charity:water campaign go directly to Cambodia to provide clean water for families.
YOU just changed a life forever. And that’s pretty awesome.
Buy a Book, Change a Life!
Remember, it only costs $15 to provide clean, safe water for one person in need. So, if you bought both ebooks this weekend, you’d be changing at least TWO lives!
And I mean, hey, you get a book out of the deal, too!
Real Food for Real Life is my guide to real food for the rest of us—if you’re sick of all the “rules” and feeling overwhelmed with it all, this is what you need to get back on track to simplify healthy eating. It covers it all—from the history of our food industry and why we need to know the difference between the steaks on sale at Walmart and ethical grass-fed meat from a real farm; to how to get your family on board with weird things like fermented vegetables; to recognizing an unhealthy mindset in your relationship with food and how to change that. It’s a big, fat, real-book-length-ebook at 240 pages, and it’s already helped hundreds of people regain their sanity in the process of figuring out healthy eating!
If you have trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, or getting the quality sleep your body needs to be healthy, you’re exactly who I wrote The Sleep Solution for. I actually used to suffer from insomnia, and had very poorly regulated sleep-wake cycles. But what I learned about the many biological processes that work together to regulate sleep cycles in my research over the last several years finally allowed me to overcome it. I wrote about everything I’ve figured out about sleep in this latest ebook of mine—and I’ve already heard the following praise from more than one person (and I quote)— “This book CHANGED MY LIFE!”
Our campaign ends December 31st, so please contribute now by grabbing one of my books. If you can give more by donating to the campaign directly, please do. Only $65 provides a BioSand filter for a whole family.
Thank you everyone so much for your help in contributing to this campaign. I can’t wait to donate the money we raise!
