All Ye Podcast Listeners…Deacon Shane Galloway (Twitter) has the perfect chance for you to own your Deaconhood and help get clean water to people who need it. Yes Shane is the uber-awesome Southern twang in the last intro. Listen, read his note, and be moved to give!
What’s up Homebrewed folks? Deacon Shane here with a proposal for ya’ll. Charity: water has a great program called my charity water that makes it easy for you to set up your own campaign to raise money for a well for folks that don’t have access to clean water. I love this organization because they’re set up so that 100% of all donations go to projects and you get to see where your money goes, you get exact GPS coordinates. Your donations are not needed for administrative costs, only to help build wells, which is what I want to help do. I want to help because 1 in 8 people don’t have access to clean water. 4,500 children die every day from water related diseases. Water is the most basic element of life and people shouldn’t have to worry so much about getting it and whether it’s going to kill their children or not.
Here is my campaign. It costs an average of $5,000 to build 1 well. I want to raise enough for 1 well. My charity water gives you 90 days for each campaign. I have until November 5 to finish raising the money. Around May 20 2012 I will run 1 mile for every $50 raised. 100 miles for me = 1 well for about 250 people for 20 years. $20 gets 1 person clean water. $50 helps 3 people and I will dedicate 1 mile to you on the run. Since I love Homebrewed Christianity I am making the offer even sweeter. If I get $500 worth of donations from Homebrewed listeners, I will wear a Homebrewed tee shirt as I cross the finish line (Tripp I need one of these). There will be a party at the finish, probably local newspapers and such as well as donors. If I can get $1000 from HB listeners I will listen to HB podcasts for the last ¼ of the run, whatever it ends up being, imagine a broken mind and body being re-programmed with Homebrewed goodness, will I ever be the same? When you donate you can write a note, just indicate that you are a HB listener so I can keep a tally. Charity: water will send a tax receipt immediately to your e mail. Donate at http://mycharitywater.org/100-4-1. Keep up on face book at 100=1 Shane’s charity: water campaign. Thanks ya’ll
