Happy World Water Day!

Happy Saturday!

I know it's not like me to stop by on a Saturday, but today is World Water Day!! I'm not sure if you know me and my history with water...


  • Up until recently, I never drank water.
  • California is perpetually in a drought, but this year especially.
  • As a kid, I was always worried about running out of water and yelled at people to turn off running water. As a result, I can't shower for longer than 15 minutes. It's impossible.
  • Recently, I was posting about the UNICEF Tap Project and easy ways for you to provide clean water. For more info. 
Today, I'm here with a few other ways! But first, let's get educated.

I was contacted by The Nature Conservancy to talk to you all about Liquid Courage. [fitting, since I talked about courage in general last week].



This is their mission:

For over 60 years, The Nature Conservancy has been working around the world to
conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends. The global shift to cities, where
70% of the world’s population will live by 2050, presents us with an enormous opportunity
to transform and shape the world around us - particularly our water supplies.
Through our Securing Water program, The Nature Conservancy is helping cities and
surrounding communities and businesses chart a more sustainable pathway to growth by
recognizing the value of and investing in the natural systems on which they rely. But we
can’t do this alone. In your lifetime, you can help change the course of your children’s
lifetime and chart a new course of environmental stewardship.
We work with nature because nature works. Join us.


They've created a cool interactive website for us to learn more about water.

The easiest thing that we can do is get educated and vote accordingly. If you want to do more, check out their website and become a supporter.

So do you think you could have #LiquidCourage?

  2. That is awesome! One of my best friends does a lot of work with UNICEF and has gone to conferences in NYC with them. I think you would love the screening! Have you thought of taking an Uber? Your first $20 is paid for by them, so it might be worth it.

  3. Yay!! I'm so happy I can introduce you to them. I love learning about new organizations all the time!! Being aware and educating others is the first step, so you don't suck at all!!

  4. Uber doesn't llike pre-paid card, so I use Lyft I still got a free ride left. I hate to go downtown, at night and being disabled. I'm waiting for the next screening on Whilshire which is closer to my house. Such a great organization, I'm jealous she got to go to conference that must have been incredible.
