World Water Day is on Saturday, March 22.
It is a day for all of us to acknowledge and raise awareness of the world water crisis. It is hard to imagine life without access to fresh water. Think about just how much water plays a role in our lives, every single day. What would I do if I couldn’t immediately fill up my water bottle with clean water each day when I am parched? Or if I had to walk for miles to collect fresh water for my family? What if I couldn’t flush my toilet?
It sounds like something out of a tale from biblical times, but this is still the case in many parts of the world.
But there’s good news. You can help!
1. Share Your #WaterStory
We all have a water story. Mine in particular is that time that I got dysentery from brushing my teeth with tap water while I was deployed in the middle east. Bleck.
These stories are the moments that remind us of how important access to water and a toilet can be.
WaterAid wants to hear your #waterstory. Be sure to blog it, tweet it, Facebook-it, and tell @WaterAidAmerica about it so that we can celebrate the importance of water every day.
2. Join Jennifer Barbour and WaterAid America Live from Nicaragua Friday at 1 PM EST for a Twitter Chat #WaterAidNica
