****BREAKING NEWS**** We have a benefactor who has pledged to match fundraising Dollar for Dollar!!!
About 2 years ago I heard for the 1st time that there are kids who don’t have safe water to drink. One fact I heard that stood out the most was “Every 21 seconds a child dies from water-related disease.” I don’t know about you but as a kid who has all the water he wants to drink, shower as long as I want and even have clean water in the toilet I use, this made me sad and hurt my heart bad. Another fact I learned was “Waterborne diseases cause the death of more than 1.5 million children each year, which is more than 4000 children everyday.” When I heard these facts and saw pictures of kids getting dirty water out of rivers to drink it made me feel better to know people are trying to help these kids and their families. Water Missions International has this super cool water system that takes dirty water in, cleans it and gives them safe water. They give people hope by providing them with clean water and by telling them about Jesus.
One thing I KNOW is I want these people to have what I have...Clean Water and Jesus! So for my 10th birthday I want to ride across SC to let people know about Water Missions and what they are doing. We will leave and start from the Upstate on the 13th(my birthday and the 1st day of Spring Break) and end in Charleston at the water hopefully on the 17th. It will take me a while I know but I would LOVE for you to join me. Ride with me. Pray for us who do get to ride and especially the people who need water. My goal is to raise $25,000. That is one water system that can provide water for a whole community. If you can ride with me please make your goal to raise $1000. I know together we can reach $25,000. If you can’t ride please help us by making a donation. Any amount will get us closer to the goal. EVERYTHING we raise is going to Water Missions. It’s a big goal I know and ride will be long but one of my favorite verses is Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” and you can too.
To make an offline donation: Please make checks payable to Water Missions International and mail them to Scotty Parker at 1209 Pasture View Drive, Hanahan, SC 29410. Please write Scotty's Ride for Water in the Memo line.
