Be the Change

Do you have a water bottle sitting right next to you or easy to grab in your bag? Do you know where the nearest water fountain is to you? Imagine walking on average 4 miles a day to have access to water. Here, more people have access to a cell phone than to a toilet. In places like sub-Saharan Africa, many people have never seen a lake, used a flush toilet, had a shower or have access to a tap to get the safe water they need. We are very lucky in North America, especially the Great Lakes Region, to have access to safe water. Our school has the chance to participate in fundraising with an organization called Drink Local Drink Tap who help those in need gain access to a safe water source. During lunch mods on the 17th and the 18th a table will be set up in the Student Center to collect monetary donations. I hope you all can participate to Be the change that you want to see.
