OTL: Help Skyo Help the Thirst Project with a Click #WRSkyoThirst


A hot shower is one of those things that I take for granted, forgetting that it would be a luxury to some people. Running water to wash dishes, filtered water from the refrigerator for drinking, and using the bathroom indoors are other important ways we are able to use clean water. I have a friend in Alaska who lives in a cabin with no running water but she has access to purchase clean water for their home.

According to The Thirst Project, almost one billion people do not have access to clean drinking water and proper sanitation. 4,400 children die every year from diseases caused by contaminated water and 80% of global diseases are water-borne. So what is the solution to this global problem? Providing communities with safe, clean drinking water by building community wells for as little as $5000 each.

Skyo is an online textbook company who is stepping up to help out. Right now you can contribute to The Thirst Project simply by liking Skyo on Facebook and following @GoSkyo on Twitter. For each like or follow Skyo receives in the month of December they will give $1 to The Thirst Project, up to $25000.

I love being able to support companies who give back and support the world community through these types of projects. Please check out Skyo on Facebook and Twitter and help them give the gift of clean water through The Thirst Project.
