Ten ways to spend World Water Day

Today is World Water Day. To mark it that excellent charity WaterAid has harnessed some of those questionable consumer surveys to produce "some startling comparisons between the time the UK population spends on everyday activities and the time people in the world's poorest countries spend fetching water".

I rather like:
2. I say! The average man will spend five hours a week staring at different women (Kodak Lens Vision Centres). In one week, the average woman in a developing country would have spent 21 hours collecting water.

I wanted to invite everyone who is celebrating today, World Water Day, by joining a 30 Day Fundraising Challenge (http://goo.gl/rkD59)
Thanx to SodaStream, they have some fantastically fun prizes to give away! They are giving away limited edition "The Water Project" SodaStream Systems to the top fundraisers in the challenge. These great gadgets can turn ordinary tap water into sparkling water or soda in under 30 seconds. So much fun. (and "Green" too!)
Between March 22nd (World Water Day) and April 20th...
• The participant who raises the most money
• The participant who gathers the most unique donors (based on email address)
• And, one randomly selected participant from any page generating at least a $10 donation
... will each win a complete "The Water Project" SodaStream Kit!
