It's getting close to the Walk for Water again. We have attended this wonderful Portland event for the last 2 years. It's such a great reminder of what we have in America, and what we should be grateful for. There are around 780 million people who don't have access to clean drinking water. We get to simply turn on our water faucets and drink some clean, refreshing drinking water, but some people aren't that lucky.

 

Water is of course necessary to live, so what would you if you lived in an area without clean drinking water? What if the nearest drinking source was miles away from you? Hundreds of millions of people deal with this same question every year. Usually mother's and their daughters are forced to make the walk to get water every day. They have to carry large containers there and back. The trip back is difficult because they are bogged down with heavy water. This generally means that these girls can't get a proper education, because they are too busy watching out for the survival of their family.  

The Walk for Water is put on by Portland Global Initiatives with the main intention of getting clean water to people who need it and by bringing awareness to this serious water issue. We have been to this wonderful event for the last 2 years, and we had a ton of fun both times we went. This coming Saturday May 30th, we will be attending for the third time. There's going to be music, games, fun, and oh yeah, Love Bottles! The event will be at 340 SE 7th Ave. Portland, OR 97214 We would love to see you come out and make it for this well deserving event! If you would like to learn more, please visit Portland Global Initiatives.
