Clean Water Instead of a $5 Coffee

I was checking the latest tweets, and came across Charity Water’s feature of Shane Mac who gets to challenge the foundation’s founder in Ping Pong once he raises $5,000.

And cannot agree more with his point of view that’s worth sharing:

I spend over $5 a day at Starbucks when I can drink water for free. When I heard that there are one billion people who don’t have access to clean water I decided to skip my coffee today and give the cost of that one drink to build a well. Think about if you gave the cost of your coffee today, tomorrow, or even for the entire week? Imagine the difference we could make by giving up something that we don’t even need… How many people can you find to skip their coffee today and come together for an amazing cause?
