oneyellowfinch.com/6 – Water is an essential human need, yet 1 in 10 people do not have access to clean water. In this episode, learn with me how we can change that. I’m donating my 31st birthday this year to try to raise $930 so that 31 people can drink clean water for the first time in their lives. Donate Here: my.charitywater.org/emily-wagner/making-hope-for-31-people-with-emily
I have enough stuff, plenty of stuff, actually TOO much stuff! And I don’t need any more things. (And if you were already contemplating buying me a birthday present, or even buying me a birthday card for $3.10; please reconsider. Please give whatever you would have spent on providing the means for Charity: Water to change someone’s life forever. And if you weren’t thinking about giving me a gift, great! I don’t need one, but please give the gift of water to somebody else that you don’t even know, maybe a mother who wants to give health and hope to her children, a grandfather who has never drunk clean water in his life. I hope you’ll join me in this effort, whether you have 31 cents to give, or $31 dollars, or more, every bit will help, and 100% of your donation will go directly to a water project that will give clean water to people in desperate need. I hope my birthday will make it possible for 31 people to have many more decades of birthdays to come.
Please share this. Share it with even just one person, or better yet, with everyone you know! Let’s spread the word and make some hope!
P.S. I’m so sorry about the poor sound quality of my podcast recordings. I’m doing these on the fly, whenever I can get a spare moment alone (which isn’t often with a 5 year old and a 10 month old with me full-time). My oldest son starts school in 2 weeks, so the rhythm of our life is about to change drastically! And hopefully, so will the quality of the technical aspects of the podcast!
Water is the most crucial life sustaining resource, yet how many of us just take it for granted? In this episode, we discuss what happened to the people of Flint, Michigan, and how you and I can be prepared for such an event. We review some very easy options to ensure that you and your family have access to clean water no matter what.
I live in the Detroit Metro Area in Michigan (USA), the water crisis of Flint, Michigan literally hits close to home (an hour away from my home in fact). The 2 short videos and the articles below will give you a good overview of what happened in Flint, and what is still going on. Thousands of Flint citizens have been poisoned. Many children especially have suffered bone and brain damage from lead poisoning.
“Berkey water filters provide the ultimate in waterborne contamination removal. They are used worldwide to set the international standard for water filters used in clean or hostile filtration environments. Owning a Berkey Water Filter gives you the ability to utilize almost any outside natural water source and transform it into the best tasting, purest drinking water possible. All while using a natural method without the use of chemicals or complicated processes.”
“The Berkey water filter system is so powerful it is classified as a purifier. This classification shows that we far exceed the abilities of the standard water filter. The portable Berkey can be used to filter non-potable or unhealthy water in situations where electricity and pressure are not available. For normal everyday water from your faucet or for challenging environments like wells, rivers, and lakes, Berkey is the most flexible and adaptable filtering system available. Berkey water costs just 1.7 cents per gallon to produce. The cleanable Black Berkey replacement filters provide an economical, reliable and powerful long-term solution to poor water quality issues that cannot be equaled. Our most popular model, the Big Berkey has a long-standing reputation for quality and service. This reputation is the reason we are trusted around the world by numerous international relief organizations to provide clean emergency drinking water to workers and citizens during times of crisis or natural disaster.”
The Berkey Water Filter System is Revolutionary
“Through diligent testing and research, we have proven that Berkey water filters remove viruses to purification standards, pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites to non-detectable levels, and harmful or unwanted chemicals to below detectable levels. Until these test results were made public, words like non-detectable were seldom if ever used to describe the abilities of a water filter to remove harmful pollutants. The filters in the Berkey system not only took the industry by storm with these unheard of benefits but also added the ability to reduce toxic heavy metals such as lead and mercury without removing the beneficial and nutritional minerals needed to support a healthy body and mind. Review and compare the ability of the unique Berkey Water Filter to Brita, Aquasana, Pur, Katadyn or bottled water and see for yourself what we have to offer and why we dominate the portable water filter industry.”
“This advanced bottle removes up to 99.99 percent of pollutants and contaminants found in drinking water. Produces up to 100 gallons of filtered water. Kit contains one 28-ounce water bottle and two filters. Bottle includes an insulator sleeve and clip.” (Credit: https://store.lds.org/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Product3_715839595_10557_3074457345616706370_-1__196989)
