Your Dollar Can Be A Blue Gold

Alyssa and I have been very much occupied for the past month. But we have not forgotten that we have a blog. :)

A year ago, a sixteen year-old guy decided that he wanted to help people in Sudan by building wells for them. One well costs $8,000. By December 2008, he raised $10,000 and was able to build one well for the Sudanese people. This year, he's at it again and we're very excited for the raising of $24,000 to build three wells!

Well, Joshua Guthrie is not your higher than average Joe. In fact, he's completely normal for his age doing school, playing video games, enjoying time with his family. The difference? His compassion for people who need so much of what we constantly take for granted: water.

Watch the video and tell your friends about it! Share it on emails, Twitter, FacebookYouTube, or blog about it! Give up a dollar and make a difference in the lives of people in Sudan!
