But with the simple act of putting on a yard sale, you can help change that!
Blue Planet Run Foundation, a small non-profit working on water projects worldwide, is getting the word out with their campaign, “Clear Clutter for Clean Water”. Here’s how it works: Organize a neighborhood yard sale (the bigger, the better, the more fun). Create a blue box to collect any money earned from selling items that are… well, BLUE. Voila! Instant hero material! Post these facts on the outside of the box and let people know they are helping you save lives:
Fact: 1.1 billion people lack access to safe drinking water.
Fact: Countless women and children walk on average 4 miles just to fetch a jug of water that is not guaranteed to be safe to drink.
Fact: 30 dollars provides one person with a lifetime supply of safe drinking water!
Take photos, tell Blue Planet Run Foundation your story, and they’ll make you a hero on their website. Send to.
