Give Thanks and Give a Drop

Mwamanongu Village water source, Tanzania. Image via WikipediaThanksgiving is coming up on Thursday, and it's a good time to stop and reflect on all the blessings we have in our lives. Something that a lot of us take for granted is our access to clean water, but more than a billion people around the world don't have access to clean water.

Project Clean Water is an initiative that targets villages around the world that have water problems and finds sustainable solutions to provide them with safe drinking water. Virgin Money is working to raise money for Project Clean Water during the Thanksgiving season. They will donate $1 to “Give a Drop” for each person who visits the Virgin site and simply posts a picture and caption of someone or something they are thankful for.

I'm sure you have plenty to be thankful for, so please, Give Thanks and Give a Drop.

ETA: You can continue to upload your pictures and let everyone know what you're thankful for. Virgin Money will continue to donate $1 for each one through December 31.
