A regular part of what we do for clients is look for relevant articles and topics for inclusion in their blogs and newsletters. One of the more interesting clients we work with is Tom Barrett of Green Water Infrastructure, a consulting company that integrates water resources for sustainable site development
More than one million people die every year from illnesses related to a lack of clean drinking water. WaterAid works in 26 of the world’s poorest countries to help secure clean, safe water for drinking and sanitation. A new well can be built for just a few thousand dollars, and can make a world of difference.
WaterAid has teamed up with megree and bloggersunite. For a limited time, when you donate to WaterAid, you can also receive a limited edition photograph from National Geographic’s “Water: Our Thirsty World” special edition. We hope that you’ll consider giving what you can to this great cause.
