advent conspiracy

worship fully

spend less

give more

love all

What a concept. I discovered Advent Conspiracy through Jane Anne at Gravity of Motion and can't stop thinking about it.

Let it sink in... it would take $10 billion to fix the world's water problem forever. Forever. And Americans alone spend $450 billion on Christmas each year. So basically, over 3,000 children a day could escape death from water born illnesses in exchange for Americans not getting as much stuff under the Christmas tree.

I don't know why this is affecting me so much now, but I'm glad it is. I hope it does you too.

$10 would give a child clean water for life. If you want to donate you can go to Advent Conspiracy's partner Living Water International.

3 tellin' me what I want to hear!:

Good Christmas idea... give some money in honor of the person you would be buying a gift for.

One secret sister in our group gave money in honor of another and I thought that was cool. I have one single mother who has no gas on due to her past and inability to pay $500, so she uses (dangerous) electric heaters in one room and they have no hot water for baths. She lives on $400 a month, seriously.

This has been on my mind constantly, too. Thank you for passing it on.
