Christmas this year is hard.
While everyone is getting excited about the approaching holidays,
this year is so different for us.
Our little girl is not here to celebrate with or buy presents for.
Last year we were discovering all the joys
of experiencing Christmas with a child.
This year our house is empty again.
That is so hard.
So, Joel and I have been trying to think
of some “different” ways we can give this year.
When Megan asked me to share about this opportunity,
I thought it was the perfect way to start out our gift giving.
Today is the day where bloggers everywhere
are joining together in a campaign to buy water for Christmas.
4500 mothers bury their children EVERY DAY due to contaminated water.
That statistic crushes my heart.
It hits very close to home this year.
Because I have been there.
And while it is a harsh reality,
no mother should ever have to bury their child.
The lack of access to clean water
is the leading cause of death in underdeveloped nations.
But we can do something to help.
$10 will buy clean water for someone in Africa for 10 years.
$10 isn’t much for us, is it?
And your $10 will be changing a life.
Will you join me today?
