Would you like a glass water?

Hi all,

We have been home for 7 weeks now with our Ethiopian Princess. We want to continue to be a part of Ethiopia beyond just our adoption.
Some of you have already heard of Charity Water and have joined in on this wonderful cause. In case you haven't, I urge you to pray about donating WATER.

We have a TIME BOMB!

Right now, 1.1 billion people on the planet don't have access to safe, clean drinking water. That's one in six of us.


charity: water is a non profit organization bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing nations. We give 100% of the money raised to direct project costs, funding sustainable clean water solutions in areas of greatest need. Just $20 can give one person in a developing nation clean water for 20 years. To find our more about Charity Water: go to their website at:

A fellow Ethiopia Adoptive parent and blogger, Lori, has started Team Ethiopia. She and others are raising money to build wells in Ethiopia. we are excited to be a part of it. Thanks Lori, you are AWESOME!

In Lori's words:
Team Ethiopia's mission is to build well(s) in Ethiopia where most of our adoptive children came from. After many of us parents have been to Ethiopia we came home different on several levels. One thing that is very clear to us is that we need and want to do more for the Ethiopian people. They are beautiful inside and out. Dirty water causes many kinds of illness and can even cause death. Several of our children came home to America with some of these water born illness' that thankfully could be treated here.

The urgency of this cause is enormous and the cost is so little. Please, donate any amount you can. Our goal is to try and get every family to donate $50. But any amount will get the job done. Together, Team Ethiopia will bring water to the many men, women, and children who desperately need it.

But please, if you want to donate to our team well, you MUST do it from this page and not from the charity: water main page. If you donate from the main page then your funds will go to the general fund and not to our well.
