One of the most beautiful blogs I know of is WHATEVER, and yesterday, Meg posted about an amazing company called Water4Christmas and their new etsy shop that will be donating ALL of their proceeds to build wells with clean water in Liberia. Here are some words from their site:
There are two primary choices in life; to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them." (Denis Waitley)
At Water for Christmas, we've allowed the existing conditions to break our hearts and spur us to action.
* We want to join others in solving the world's water crisis, where 1.1 billion people on the planet don't have access to safe, clean drinking water.
* We don't want to accept the conditions where unclean water and the lack of basic sanitation cause 80% of all sickness and disease and kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war.
* It doesn't make sense that 4500 children should die every day from the lack of access to clean water.
Water for Christmas is partnering with charity: water (www.charitywater.org) to build wells in Africa. All proceeds from items sold in this shop will go directly to building fresh water wells in Liberia, West Africa. We believe that a small group of people can work together to change the world.

Since Wednesday's Corner View, courtesy of Trinsch, is WATER, what better way to celebrate and acknowledge what most of us take for granted than visiting this site and perhaps making a purchase? They have some beautiful things, including the gorgeous water drop Christmas ornament in the photo above (that I have promptly bought in two colors!).
