Day 323

Another day on

I started with simply reviewing a website geared towards raising funds for childhood cancer - 

I then gave feedback on an Ad to recruit board members for Sexual Assault Response Services of Southern Maine.

I also helped spread the word about the We Women Foundation's online campaign Educate One, Empower Thousands - check them out on facebook!

Lastly, I took action to support the Water for the World Act. Clean water and sanitation are basic human rights. But 2.6 billion people lack access to improved sanitation, including 1.2 billion people who have no facilities at all. The majority of the illness in the world is caused by fecal matter -- in fact, 50% of the hospital beds in the developing world are occupied by people suffering water-related diseases and, every 20 seconds, a child dies from a water-related disease. Among those with the least access to clean water are the more than one billion people around the world who live in slums.

Hope everyone has a good weekend!!
