As the Year Ends, Please Consider Making the Gift of Clean Water to God's Thirsty Children
The month of December offers us a joyous time of year to celebrate the spirit of Christmas and togetherness with family and friends. According to a recent survey, nearly 6 of 10 Americans (59%) expressed a preference for a charitable donation made on their behalf in 2021 rather than receive a material gift this Christmas. If you are looking for a charitable gift that will keep on giving beyond the holiday season, please consider a donation to Water With Blessings to honor your special family member or friend. Please share our unique mission of improving children’s health with clean water so that we can distribute more filters in the Navajo Nation and in countries around the world!
In addition, 1,500 American adults were asked about their December giving preferences. The final tally found that 64% of respondents participate in year-end charitable activities, including
----giving money (53%);
----donating goods (46%) to charities;
----donating cash or goods directly to families in need (27%);
----performing random acts of kindness (25%);
When you look beyond these compelling statistics, we know intuitively--and research confirms it--that it feels good to give to others and giving helps us feel connected, especially during the challenges of a global pandemic and the hustle and bustle of our daily lives. When you look at the beautiful faces of our Water Women and their children featured in our e-news, you can see the looks of relief on their faces when they realize that they will be able to access clean water on a daily basis following filter training and household placement that also benefits 3 neighboring families. Thanks to you for your donations, advocacy and volunteering on behalf of Water With Blessings: Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
This year, we have begun expanding our giving opportunities so that more Water Women can use filters and participate in training with more diverse types of gifts to include
--Shares of stock and securities
--Charitable distributions from IRA accounts
--Bequests, wills and estate planning
--Cash/checks/online credit card gifts
--Matching gifts from your employer
Your personal philanthropy has a big impact—thank you for considering Water With Blessings for your charitable giving..
