Water for Kids # 1 You can help these children

Some kids of villages walk hours carrying polluted water (sometimes the only water they can find) for their family to drink. If they had a local well of clean water the kids could go to school (instead of carrying water). And they and their families would not get as sick. And with local clean water and an education, the cycle of poverty may be broken for them.

I am going to walk, or walk-run a half marathon to raise money for clean water. For these kids, for their parents, for Jesus.

I am 75 pounds over my suppose-to-be weight. I haven’t exercised in decades. I’m scared to death. And I hate running.

My recruiters at my church say I’m “qualified.”

So here’s the deal. If you want to cheer me on: wonderful. If you want to pray that God would help me (and I desperately need Him): that’s wonderful too. If you want to give any amount of money (no amount too small (or big :>)) to World Vision so you can help them give clean water to these precious people and change their lives for the better: priceless.

To learn more go to: https://teamworldvision.org/participant/James-McNaughton Once on the page you can get more details on how important clean water is, and the real impact you can make in getting clean water to children that desperately need it.

Just to let you know I’m invested, my wife and I have donated $50 for one child’s clean water and paid the registration fee of $95 for me to do the half-marathon. If we (me and all of you) raise $3,000 I will donate another $100 (more details to come).

Clean-Water Update: My oldest son walked with me and we went over 2 miles. He is thinking of raising money for the kids clean water too.
