1000 wells later, Blood:Water Mission is still going strong in their fundraising efforts to invest in African communities most impacted by the HIV/AIDS crisis. Cement is now sexy (note to B:WM – you might want to use that catchphrase), as it’s an important component in water and sanitation projects. Half a bag of cement goes into a bio-sand water filter, seven bags can build a well, and 54 bags are needed for a rain-catchment tank.
If you buy two bags of cement by December 15th, a matching grant will provide a third bag to Blood:Water Mission – that’s $50 for three very valuable bags of cement. Will you consider “Cementing Your Love” this holiday season?
