Well, here it is the end of April. Some of you may not remember, but I wanted to remind everyone about the Blood Water Mission well fund raiser we are doing here on this blog. Here are all the posts related to donating money to help build wells for people in need of clean water. So far we are not even close to the original goal of “Two Wells in Three Months”, in fact I think we should change the name to “One Well In Three Months” and shoot for that instead.
There are a couple different ways you can give. One is by clicking that giant orange box to the right of this post. That will take you to a PayPal account where you can donate. The other way is to head over to JesusGreaterThan.org and buy a Thirst Shirt. Whatever money is made from the shirts will also be donated to Blood Water Mission as well.
The plan is still to send BWM a check on the first of June. Hopefully it will be enough to get them a well, but we’ve got a long way to go. Seriously, thanks for all of you who have donated. Tell as many people as you can today about this, and let’s get some people some clean water. There’s really no reason this community here on this blog can’t spread the word like crazy about this.
Let’s get a well this month. What do you say?
Just wanted to remind everyone we are still trying to build some wells in Africa through the work of Blood Water Mission. So far the response has been great, but I know there are plenty of other folks out there that wanted to give.
Remember my piss-poor math? Ten bucks a month, or thirty bucks for three months because we are trying to give enough for two wells every three months. With the amount of readers here we should be able to get that done in no time. Obviously there is no penalty for giving more, so do that if you wish.
Click that giant, obvious orange box over there on the right and enter the amount you want to donate, or head over to Jesus>Thirst and get a shirt, where the proceeds will go into the pot. Remember, June 1st is the day that I am sending the check. It’s not too close right now, but I don’t see why it can’t be a lot closer by that date, so let’s get on it. Everyone here has some cash laying around that can go to help save some lives.
So far the response to our “Two Wells Every Three Months” has been great, but I think that several of you were waiting for the “Jesus>Thirst” shirts. Well, they are ready to go and up on site.
Make sure you head over to the site and pick up a shirt. And like I mentioned before P.D. has graciously offered that all the proceeds from these shirts will go directly to the collection for Blood Water Mission.
My plan is to send a check in on June 1st, so let’s see how much we can raise before then. I’m excited to see where this is going to go.
So there you go…. go get a shirt… or donate by clicking the button on the right.
Remember the other day when I asked if we here as a “blogging community” would be willing to take on the feat of raising enough money every quarter to supply two wells through Blood Water Mission? Well, I was serious, and so were several of you. I was contacted by a friend of mine who is making some noise with several different shirts he is making. He told me that the next shirt that he is planning on making is a shirt simply stating “Jesus>Thirst”. Seems appropriate, don’t you think?
P.D. explained to me that he wants to get behind this little project here and we are working out the details on how to link the two. Right now P.D. has offered that if someone buys a “Jesus>Thirst” shirt and mentions Blood Water Mission he will donate all of the proceeds to the goal of Two Wells Every Three Months. Pretty generous, eh?
So here’s the deal. The shirts are on order, the “donate” button is conveniently placed over there on the right, and we are ready to go. I will keep you all updated on where we are at as far as our goal, and together we can start giving people something that we daily take for granted, clean water. This is something that I see as a “regular” thing, and am going to keep bugging you people about it. I’m thinking if we all do at least ten dollars a month we should be able to get pretty close to our goal. I’m not a business guy, I don’t know anything about non-profit stuff, this is just giving money to something I believe in. Once we have enough for the Two Wells, I will take the money out of the Paypal thing, and send them a check. I don’t really know how else to do it, so that’s where we are at. Eventually I will have a button that you guys can put on your blogs to spread the word to your readers.
Who’s with me?
