According to Scott Harrison, founder of charity: water, more people than twice the population of the United States drink dirty water, filled with worms and other visible creatures, and microorganisms sometimes powerful enough to cause diarrhea and various illnesses, and often the loss of lives. That’s 785 million—and that’s a conservative estimate.

It seems like an insurmountable problem, and yet it costs charity: water only $40 to give one more person clean water. That’s where Scott Harrison started when he founded his NGO in 2006. And as of 2020 they helped 11 million people in 28 countries—with contributions from over one million people in the world.

I’m not asking that you contribute anything—only that you watch the story of charity: water and see for yourself if you want to learn more about the fight for clean water and do something about it, your own way. People have been climbing mountains, running marathons, you name it. But it doesn’t have to be that hard. Children have also been able to help, by “giving up” birthdays and Christmas gifts, for instance. It’s really very easy to make a difference, because Scott Harrison and his charity have opened an amazing path. Here’s his inspirational story

To a happier, healthier life,
