5 Days in May

5 Days in May is a movement among social networkers to raise money and awareness for clean water in countries and villiages where it currently does not exist.

One simple idea: Drink water to give water. For Five days (May 1-5) we will fast the coffees and sof drinks that we usually drink and give that money to http://www.watermissions.org, which is building water systems all over the world.

On average, 30 cans of soda equal $15.00, 3 trips to a commercial coffee shop equal $10.00 and five fountain drinks equal $8.75, totaling $43.75 spent on beverages by the average American in only one week.

According to Water Missions International, that same dollar amount of $43.75 could give 5 people clean drinking water for the rest of their lives.

Water is critical to life, health, and sustainable development. Yet, worldwide, more than a billion people do not have access to this basic resource. More than two billion do not have adequate sanitation. Every day, an estimated 25,000 people die from a lack of safe water and sanitation.
