My new favorite e-card

Posted on July 6th, 2009 by Water Nymph in Cool Stuff

charitywatercharity: water does everything right. They are a non-profit who’s mission is to bring clean and safe drinking water to places like the Central African Republic, Ethiopia, Haiti. In fact, they’ve completed 1,247 water projects, serving 650,000 people (according to their website).

Rainwater Recovery is exploring ways to help some non-profits, but right now, we can help these thirsty people in a cool and easy way: send their e-cards. You can see them here. You can send a card designed for birthdays, get well wishes, or “Just Because” Each group has at least a couple options, one an interesting graphic design and the other an image of happy children getting clean, fresh water. The text for the anniversary card reads, “A donation has been made in honor of your special day. Because of this gift, someone you’ve never met will now have clean, safe drinking water…”

It’s just $20, and everyone I’ve sent them to has loved them.

    How cool! Thanks for spreading the good word! Its great to find organizations that have a direct impact on the health and lives of people with limited access to fresh water. What a wonderful and creative way to get help where it is needed. Keep up the good work! And our sincere hats off to Charity:Water. – P

    By the way, I hadn’t seen the new web design and blog.
    Very nice. -ML
