Rock of Eden was formed with one simple idea: love to give. Sure, it’s a nice slogan for gift giving because making someone feel special is just plain “happy,” as my girlfriend, Katie, would say. But today, we feel giddy.
We are launching our second love to give charity effort and feeling great about it. We are partnering with charity: water to help raise more money for building ground wells for clean water in developing countries who don’t have it.
About one billion people per day don’t have clean water. One baby dies every nineteen seconds from a water related disease. Can you imagine not having clean water available less than ten steps away at your faucet?
We have family in New York who were without power and water during Hurricane Sandy for a couple of days – boy were they miserable. Understandably so. Still…imagine walking three hours a day to the nearest swamp, pond or river for a few gallons of water.
The way we see it, if we have the ability to enjoy a few luxuries once in awhile, we need to help others out with the basics. Basics like clean water. And we like these charity: water guys – they’ve been doing it for awhile and they’re proven.
Clean water is good karma.
