ABC News Inspiring Story

An inspiring story at ABC News about clean water but so sad.As you know, I have never had any advertising on this blog and rarely recommend companies. This post is an exception. A little girl with a big heart put up a website to provide developing nations with clean water.

She had just celebrated her ninth birthday. Unfortunately, she passed away after being in a very serious auto accident. I and tens of thousands of people have donated in her honor. Her goal was $300. Due to the outpouring of sympathy for her and her family, almost $800,000 has been donated to her website for clean water.

The MSN story is here. At the bottom of the ABC article is a link to her website. Most people donated $9 or $9 per each of their children. Once you see her picture, you will be glad you clicked over to the article.

She was a special young lady. Even with all the rhetoric we have heard over the last few days, it is comforting to know that there are many good people worldwide willing to help out a great cause.
