You may have heard of Planet Water, a United States non-profit development organization devoted to bringing clean water to the world's most disadvantaged communities through the installation of community-based water filtration systems and education programs on water-health and hygiene. Please go to their website  or Or, write to Planet Water, 16071 N. 76th Street, Suite 102, Scottsdale, AZ., 85260- tel# 1-877-711-3083. where you will find tons of information on this splendid organization and the myriad ways you can charitably donate, and add your support through various ways to help them futher their truly important goals.
Their goals and their mission are simple- they strive to  alleviate waterbourne disease, illness, and death through providing access to clean drinking water and improved sanitation facilities in the world's most disadvantaged communities.
The work that Planet Water does is targeted toward schools and rural villages  with sustainable solutions combined with educational programs on hygiene practices.
Planet Water's vision is of a world where people no longer DIE simply because they lack access to clean drinking water and basic sanitation facilities.
In support of the UN Millenium Development Goal, the Planet Water Foundation targets helping 5 MILLION PEOPLE gain access to clean drinking water and improved sanitation by the year 2020.
They can do this, if you can help them financially or in any other way you can assist them (Planet Water) according to their proscribed methods to fund their wonderful projects around the world and their very noble cause. Please look them up to see how they identify projects/need, arrive at sustainable solutions, disseminate information to the communities involved, engage with those communities and school systems all so that MILLIONS of PEOPLE can survive because they will then have access to clean water, one of the most basic elements our bodies (being 76% water) need to survive.
 Here in Nyack we don't  have these kinds of water worries. It feels good to be involved in helping other communities attain something which is a basic necessity. It is the time of year for giving and this is one of the many organizations I support year round. Now that I've shared this little gem with you, perhaps you will find some discretionary income to put to good use for a very, very good cause.
