World Water Day, March 22, 2015! #Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 3/15 #WorldVision @WorldVisionUSA #WaterEffect #WaterNow


Water is a necessary resource for sustainable living, yet 748 million people lack access to clean water – the equivalent of nearly two and a half times the United States population. To address this crisis and to acknowledge water’s essential presence on the earth, the United Nations General Assembly declared March 22 as World Water Day in 1993.



The blue umbrella, sporting World Vision’s logo and a call to save lives with water, serves as a practical reminder that rainwater is considered a precious resource for people that lack established water systems.



From the World Vision Gift Catalog, the Royal Silk Scarf is made with luxurious silk, using Fair-Trade practices. The blend of soft colors emulates the purifying qualities of water and the vibrant life that it sustains.



Take a look at World Vision’s YouTube channel and clean water video above for an inside look at the impact of the water crisis in one girl’s life.



Read the report  Even after 20 years, 80% of World Vision wells — significantly higher than industry standard — are still operational in Ghana. (click to make it bigger, or go here to see it larger)
