First Gift

Pam does Christmas shopping all year long.  It can be April, and she'll see something that she thinks someone in our family would like, and buys it for Christmas.  She's really organized.

I, on the other hand, am not.  I think about Christmas presents round 

So today, my donation to Water For Christmas really is the first gift I'm buying for Christmas.

$10 doesn't get much of a gift these days.  Maybe a stocking stuffer.  OK, a pretty nice stocking stuffer, but a stocking stuffer nonetheless.

Here's what $10 will do this Christmas:

This little boy is drinking clean water from a Charity:Water well in a small Liberian village.

This isn't one of Charity:Water's publicity pictures.  Jody Landers took this picture herself when she was in Liberia a week ago.

So it's not just a Charity:Water well.  It's a Water For Christmas well.  It's what we were able to do last year.  And what we're going to do again this year.

It starts today.

$10.  A stocking stuffer.  And clean water for one person for the next ten years.

If you want to see more pictures from Jody's trip, click on her blog link to the left.  If you need more info on First Gift before donating, take a look at this.  And if you're ready to give, click here.
