The Most Amazing Video I’ve Ever Seen #FirstWorldProblems

“Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.” – Muhammad Ali… Most of you have probably noticed that giving back is a pretty important thing to me. Even though I don’t make a ton of money, and we live on a super tight budget, but I always find a way to give back, especially at the holidays. I buy gifts to donate to the local YWCA shelter for women who are trying to get out of a domestic violence type situation. I use my holiday shopping dollars to buy charity gifts to places like Heifer International. And, I’m definitely going to be supporting this new organization that I found today – Water is Life. Seriously – I think that this is one of the best marketing videos that I’ve seen in forever. It’s funny, in a weird way. It’s moving. It makes you think. It does an amazing job of making you realize WHY people around the world need our help. It gets the message across perfectly, in a video that makes people want to share it…

I encourage you to make a donation – even of just one dollar – to the Water is Life foundation. Want to learn a little more about them first? Read a story of the founder of the charity on the TPRF blog, which features real stories of the people behind great groups like this…

 As a Fulbright Scholar, Ariane lived with families in the Azawak region and discovered the human face of climate change: people literally dying of thirst because of their inability to adapt to a rapidly changing climate.  Ariane found these people to be the most generous and dignified as well as the most vulnerable of the populations she encountered in her travels throughout West Africa. She had never before witnessed an area with so few resources and infrastructure, where individuals live on the brink of disaster on a daily basis due to circumstances beyond their control. Most importantly, she had never seen half a million people in such distress receiving so little assistance from the rest of the world.

Or buy the CD Aman Iman: Water is Life – to show your support.

  1. If there is one charity that I think is the key, I swear it’s the WATER charities. I support Matt Damen’s water charity…thanks for reminding me. This is a check that is overdue.

  2. Hi, Meagan,
    I work with Ariane Kirtley and her organization, Amman Imman: Water is Life. I’m glad you’ve discovered us via the TPRF blog! However, you’ve linked to a different organization. Our organization’s website is, http://www.ammanimman.org. We currently focus our work in the Azawak region of West Africa, where half a million people struggle daily in search of water. We are currently in the process of building our 5th borehole well, which will quench the thirst of 25,000 people and animals during the dry season. For the people of the Azawak, water = possibility. Once they have water we support them with agricultural, economic, health, women’s empowerment and education activities. But first they need water. I invite you and your readers to visit our website to learn more!
