Ban the Flush

Donate to charity: water

Did you know that more than 1.1 billion people in the world today don’t have the most basic thing: clean water to drink. Sadly, over 4,500 kids die each and every day from water-related disease.

To do his part, our friend & colleague Graham Hill (the founder of one of our favourite web sites, Treehugger) is using his birthday to support an organization called charity: water that has been making a real difference by contributing to their September campaign to bring clean and safe drinking water to the people of Ethiopia.

He has asked his friends that in lieu of birthday gifts to donate instead. 100% of the money raised will go directly to building freshwater wells, which will be proved with GPS coordinates and photos on Google Earth.

Well, you can help too! For more information or to donate visit his page:

Please pass this page off to your friends as well.
