A Video About Water That'll Turn On Your Tear Ducts (Video)

The story of charity: water - The 2009 September Campaign Trailer from charity: water on Vimeo.

Charity:water, a group that works to bring fresh water to every person in the world, is inspiring all on its own, but if you need an extra nudge to get involved, this video will do it (and probably inspire a "I'm fine, I just have something in my eye" moment). The group turns three years old next month, and they have one ever-so-small goal to accomplish. Fresh water for every single person on earth. That's the ultimate goal of charity:water. They've already helped nearly a million people get access to clean, fresh water. While it's safe to say everyone reading this post can go over to the tap, turn it on, and drink whatever comes out of it, millions of people don't have that kind of luxury. Charity:water is changing that.

Feel like making a difference? Check out charity:water's website. It's the perfect way to wrap up Blue August, and start in on September.
