Tis the season … to Give Clean Water

Thursday, November 11th, 2010

My regular readers will remember a couple months back I participated in the P&G Give Health Clean Water Blogivation to provide clean drinking water to people in the developing world.

Bloggers, myself included, who participated in the inaugural challenge collected an amazing 21,000 days of clean water!!! My original post can be found here.

.

 

The company has decided to extend the program in a

 bid to provide 100,000 days of clean water by the end of 2010.

.

 

All you have to do is click below, and verify your vote – and someone in the developing world will get one days of clean water.

This is NOT a contest – it is simply an opportunity to take a few seconds out of your day to help someone in need.

I hope you will vote, and vote often.

Thank you!!!

Raising a glass for a good cause

Ok, truth time.

The run-up to the BlogHer conference later this week in New York City, and all the pre-conference #dayjob meetings I have after coming off a 6 a.m. flight into JFK airport have got my brain a bit scattered.

Full disclosure? I’m so frazzled I freaked myself out earlier today when talking to #TBFF @AspiringMama when I got it in my head that I am leaving tomorrow.  It is actually @AspiringMama who is leaving tomorrow. With all the packing, the organizing, the regular day job tasks, house cleaning, vet visits, prescription filling and dead camera batteries, can you blame me?

What I find particularly amusing about my current state of mind is that while I am attending a major blogging conference where I have been named a Voices of the Year finalist no less, I am not really blogging this week! How’s that for irony? Or slacking? Or …. Well, you get the picture.

But I always post on Mondays so I didn’t want to leave you all with nothing to show for visiting my little blog. (… and, honestly, with 4 minutes left in the day on the U.S. East Coast I won’t make it … but Central and Pacific time zones can still read this on Monday so that counts. Right. Right?!? Yes, right.)
