Read Mission Statement

I first read about this campaign through an ezine that I am subscribed too; in the ezine was an article by Alyssa Milano. She was giving up her 37th birthday to raise money and wareness for this cause. I donated and then thought that I should start my own campaign. I am fortunate; I have 4 lovely children and while times have been tough we are still better off than many other people. I am lucky to have my children but I am also aware that there are too many children who don't have access to even basic water.

The name of my campaign is Doris Duckitt which is the name of my beloved Grandma; she passed away almost 6 years ago and I wanted to do something sepcial in her honour. She was a very special lady and I miss her a lot.

"Millions of women and children in developing countries walk over three miles every day to collect water. And sadly, often the only water they have is sitting stagnant in contaminated ponds and flowing through streams and rivers polluted by cows and human waste.

Unsafe water and a lack of basic sanitation causes 80% of all disease in the world and kills 4,500 children every day. And the time spent collecting water keeps children out of school and women from pursuing economic activities.

Clean and safe water is readily available in underground aquifers, freshwater springs or with the help of simple filters. It just needs to be properly collected and managed. "[from the FAQ]
