a couple of years ago i heard the story of a photographer from NYC, Scott Harrison, who went to west africa as a photojournalist volunteer. the project changed his life (and the lives of many others)…. watching the video and reading the stories on the web had a great impact on me. like the fact that almost a billion people live without clean water. and that women and children in places like sub-saharan africa walk up to four hours each day to get water – and that every 19 seconds a mother loses one of her children because of this same contaminated water. this breaks my heart in pieces. it makes me immensely grateful for the life i get to live, but also creates a profound feeling of responsibility, and, since i believe that the worst of sins is indifference, i’ve decided to use my modest ways (photography work, blogging, donations, etc) to help.
CHARITY: WATER is one of my favorite charity foundations. please open you hearts and give just 10 minutes of your time to watch this video or visit their website. i’m sure, like me, you would love to be part of such a great movement.
