    I am thankful that many who would never get to drink clean water are drinking it because Jesus inspired someone to help others with “World Water Day 2009″

    Did you see this video made by Good Magazine for World Water Day that re-imagines what those old Crocodile Mile commercials would have been like if they had been made in a third world country?

    I wrote this in the other blog (effectively killing it–lol), but I think it’s worth repeating it…

    On average 5 gallons of (US) tap water costs 1 penny. FUJI water (just one example) will deliver the same 5 gallons of water to your home for about $56 bucks.

    You do the math.
