We did it!
We've raised enough money for four wells.
The pace has picked up to a well a week. With a little less than two weeks to go before Christmas, six wells is within our reach. Things will have to really pick up to get to the ten wells that Jody has challenged us to reach, but it's not out of the question.
Tomorrow night in Muscatine there is a big WFC Benefit Party. It's at a country club. There's a vacation package and lots of other neat things to be auctioned. Who knows how much might be raised--maybe enough for Well #5. Or #5 and #6.
You just never know.
Regardless, Water For Christmas has been a big success, if for no other reason than that our awareness has been raised.
Aw, forget that. You can't drink awareness. It's a success because people will have water and will not have disease. Children will live. That's why it's a success.
So let's shoot for the ten. That's a lot of water.
A lot of life.
