1 in 8: The number of people who do not have access to clean drinking water
4500: The number of children who die every day from diseases caused by contaminated water. (Approximately 1 child every 15 seconds.)
3.75 Miles: The average distance a woman walks to collect water. This task often falls upon young girls leaving them no time or energy for an education.
So, join me on this important evening as we honor Michael Welch from The Twilight Saga for his time, energy, and dedication to such a wonderful cause.
