It’s the Christmas season, and everyone is busily getting all of their shopping done. Trees are up. Lights adorn every rooftop and make pine trees glitter. Friends and family call, text, e-mail, Facebook, and Skype to ask, “What do you want for Christmas?”
What if all you wanted was water?
I’m not talking about just a glass. I’m talking about having a pure drinking source, free of pollutants, bacteria, parasites and poisons, a basic human necessity for survival. What if that was all you could think about, all day, every day? Water. It seems so simple, and yet every year, 2.5 million people die from drinking contaminated drinking water.
We are so blessed to live where we do- in various cities and countries all over the world. We have houses to sleep in at night, with beds, and blankets and fireplaces. We have a glass of water on the bedside table. We have showers in the morning. We brush our teeth. We drink tea or coffee on our way to work. We get to our jobs and wait for lunch breaks. Coffee breaks. We soak in hot tubs, swim laps in pools. We go home, cook dinner, wash our veggies in the sink. Wash our faces at night. We take these things for granted. What if it were gone?
This year, myself and a group of AMAZING (truly, wholeheartedly, spectacularly INCREDIBLE) people got together virtually to help those who do not have those simple things. To help bring water to those who have so little. To save lives, and change the world. We recorded a Christmas album to bring cheer to your homes and clean water to people who need it.
We are a group of passionate, diverse, unique, and free individuals who care SO MUCH about our clients and our world. We came together in a month, with one heartbeat between us, and this album was born of the question, “What can I do to make a difference?”
A Showiteer’s Christmas-United for Change is the name of the album, and also our mission. To come together and change the world, one glass at a time. We would love for you to join with us- 100% of the proceeds from sales of the album will be donated to Thirst Relief International (www.thirstrelief.org) to provide life-giving water.
A Showiteer’s Christmas- United for Change is available for download on iTunes TODAY. Spread some Christmas cheer and help us make a difference!
