There is a great verse in the Bible that goes like this: “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heaven…” (Ecclesiastes 3: 1) If your email is like mine, this week you have been undulated with emails from every organization that is seeking funds for their special causes. The requests have come from UN agencies right down to the local food bank. Today, December 2nd is considered World Giving Day.
I was reminded that we might want to capture the mood of the season and remind people that we indeed receive gifts to pay for water filters, solar lights, and high efficiency stoves for the poorest of the poor with some of the best, competent, and successful non-government organizations in the world. Many of you have already and continue to provide such support and gifts. To you I just want to say THANK YOU on behalf of those who do not have the means to do so themselves.
What we need more than money is your wisdom, connections, encouragement, and prayer for what we do. For that we will be forever grateful. Write us a note about who you know and support who you think could benefit from the products we provide to give dignity and hope to the least, lost, and lonely of the world.
With grateful hearts,
Jereme, Jan, Jeff, and Lou
Thank you for your ongoing encouragement, notes, and support in the critical effort to implement clean and safe water around the world. Give one of the greatest gifts imaginable – the gift of safe water. It’s hard to believe that 1.1 billion people still don’t have safe water. Thank you for the special gifts for water filters received over the holidays that have been given out.
