Give A Drop

As Thanksgiving approaches, we all reflect on what we are thankful for. I am thankful for my children, my husband, my family. I am also thankful for all of our health and our home. I have much to be thankful for, as I'm sure you all do.

But, did it ever cross your mind to be thankful for clean drinking water? It never occurred to me, until today.

I received an email from a Virgin Group representative. She asked if I would help spread the word about Project Clean Water at www.giveadrop.com.

Founded in 1997, by singer Jewel, Project Clean Water targets villages around the world that have water problems. The initiative finds solutions to provide these villages with safe drinking water.

Great cause, huh?

Upon visiting the Give A Drop website, you can help by donating a "drop" in support. The more your donation, the bigger your "drop". You can even click on View Drops to see who is helping make the world a better place.

You can also visit the Virgin Money website and "Give Thanks". Virgin will donate $1.00 to Give A Drop for each person who visits and simply posts a picture and caption of someone or something they are thankful for. They are also going to generously donate $50.00 to the organization, just because I told you all about it.

How great is that?!

So please, stop by this Thanksgiving and do something special. Isn't that what this season is all about?
