Earth Day

Today is Earth Day.  Normally I would try to come up with an environmentally friendly craft project to share with you.  Today I decided to do something a little different.  Charity:Water posted this new video on their website in honor of Earth Day.

I feel like sometimes we forget that this is going on all over the world because we are so caught up in our own lives.  We don't have to worry about having clean water.  It's just there.  So many people have never even known what clean water is.  And the worst part is this is such an easily solved problem.  We just have to be willing to help.  That's where Charity:Water comes in.  They build wells in places where there is no clean water with the help of donations from regular people like us.

Some of you already know this but or my new followers...

I made a plushie in honor of Blog Action Day last year.  His name is Rio.  

I will donate all money made from this plushie to Charity:Water.  If you are interested in purchasing one he is available at Dreaming in Craft on Etsy.  If you live in the Austin area I will always make sure to bring Rio to shows with me as well.  I hope that you will consider helping Charity:Water raise money to help bring clean drinking water to the entire world.  If you prefer, you can donate directly to Charity:Water on their website.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Earth Day.  Did you do anything fun to celebrate?
