Does Your Walkathon Need a Cause?


Clean Water for Ethiopia

"It’s best to tackle the problem one place at a time. The overall water crisis is hard to fix (one billion people!), but when you break it down country by country, region by region, and community by community, it’s not nearly as difficult." - Chris Guillebeau

I know it sounds backwards, but now and then I hear of a group who wants to do a walkathon, and needs to choose a cause that they can rally around.  If you fit into that category, here is one great idea, called  Clean Water for Ethiopia.

Chris Guillebeau, author of The Art of Nonconformity, has chosen this as his cause and is spreading the word, in partnership with Charity: Water.  His goal is to raise a minimum of $500,000 for water wells in Ethiopia over the next 18 months.   You could really help here.

If this helps, you might also like this previous post, Four Criteria for Choosing Your Cause.
