weekly round up

Instead of my usual list of favorite links of the week like a buzzfeed article I found entertaining or the latest thing I just "absolutely need", I wanted to share with you one very powerful video that was shared with me this week. DDB New York and WATERisLIFE are raising money and awareness about unclean drinking water which is the leading cause of death of children UNDER 5 in some areas of sub-Saharan Africa. They helped 4 year old Nkaitole complete his bucket list because there is a 1 in 5 chance he wont reach the age of 5. Watch below and read more here:
You know what has never been in my gratitude journal? WATER. That's because I take for granted my access to clean water every single day. EVERY day. But the fact of the matter is that there is a 1 in 5 chance children in some parts of the world wont reach 5 and diarrhea is the second leading cause of death among children under five in the world. And friends, this.is.preventable.  This really stopped me in my tracks this week. I encourage you to get involved, get educated and make a donation of time or treasure- your time sharing awareness or treasure sharing financial resources. And appreciate your blessings. 
Want to learn more/get involved? Check out WATERisLIFE or charity: water or shop at Waffles & Honey - an etsy shop with beautiful handmade jewelry that donates 20% of its proceeds to charity: water.
That's all from me today! Happy Friday! TGIF!
