    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.

    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 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”
