I'm Not Drinking Dirty Water

Today’s a rainy Saturday in Nashville so we've decided to stay home and clean the house. I’ve made several trips up and down the stairs today in our air conditioning and I think I’ve refilled my glass of water with fresh lemon about 3 times over the last few hours to try to quench my thirst.

As I was cleaning, I ran into some of the promotional videos that World Vision provides to us with the children we sponsor.The following video really struck me. I didn’t have to walk 5 miles to get my water, I didn’t need to think about rationing it for my family today, and I didn’t have to worry about the risks of contracting a disease as a result of me drinking the water.

Please consider taking a few minutes to watch this. I’m extremely proud to have aligned our company, Abenity, with World Vision and I hope to one day see the needs of these children met through the generosity and love of others, who comparatively have so much more than them.
