Today is Day 3… that’s right! I’ve extended my 4 Liters challenge!

Thanks to a very generous donor I raised another $100 yesterday for Dig Deep! As promised, I  have extended my 2 day challenge to 3 days of living on only 4 liters of water a day.

Last night was a very powerful night as I handed out water bottles to the homeless with The Burrito Project on skid row in downtown Los Angeles. I always come away grateful for how blessed I am and a concern for all those that we give water and burritos to. I pray that they will know their worth and God’s love for them and with His grace they will come to a better living situation.  We passed out over 600 burritos and about 25 cases of water last night.

While I’ve extended my 4 liter challenge an extra day and on my profile  it says that I’m done,  it’s still not too late to donate to bring clean water to those who don’t have access – My 4 Liters Profile

It’s Day 1 and I made my goal! But let’s not stop there…

Today is Day 1 of the 4 Liters of water a day challenge! I’m only using 4 liters of water a day for two days to brush my teeth, shower, wash my hands, clothes, dishes, cook and drink! It’s 12:30ish and so far I’ve only used a little over half a liter of water this morning. I’m conserving my water during the day today because every Wednesday night I go out salsa dancing and consume water to stay hydrated. 😉

I’m VERY excited to report that I made my fundraising goal of $200!!!! I have decided to throw out a challenge to ALL OF US! If I can raise another $100 by 11pm PTS tomorrow/Thursday night I will extend my 4 liters challenge an extra day for a total of 3 days!

Who’s with me?!? Let’s bring clean water to those don’t have access to it! Donate here at my 4Liters Profile

Here’s a radio interview I did sharing about the 4Liter challenge:

Help me combat water poverty!

In a week I’m taking the 4 Liter challenge and am going to live on 4 liters of water a day for two days on October 16th & 17th. Why the heck would I do that, you ask? Well, there are many all over the world and even here in the United States who don’t have access to clean water. By living on 4 liters, the lowest amount of water every person needs to survive on in a day will change how I think about water.

While I’m raising my own, as well as (hopefully) others awareness of water poverty. I’m also raising funds for Dig Deep, an organization that brings clean water to those who don’t have access to clean water. 100% of every donation goes to their water projects, bringing clean water to people all around the world!

To hear about my experience of water poverty as a missionary in Mexico and  why I chose to participate in the 4 Liter challenge you can listen to a radio interview this Sunday, October 13th. Listen in the San Antonio, TX area on The Mess Radio Show on News Talk 550 KTSA or online at TuneIn at 9:30pmEST/8:30pmCST/6:30pmPST

To support me in my 4 Liter challenge visit my 4 Liter profile here. I’ll be posting photo’s and updates during the challenge so be sure to follow along on twitter or facebook!

Feel free to join me in the 4 Liter challenge!

Sweet Pea Potty Adventures!

Yesterday I traveled from Michigan to New York with two men and a car. During the long road trip we got stuck in an intense traffic jam in PA. After being at a stand still for over an hour I desperately needed a bathroom. About 45 min’s later we made it to what turned out to be a remote exit. A tree/ bushes, napkins from Panera and an umbrella on the side of the road were my only options until… a random port a potty was spotted!!! Thank you Lord for providing me with “Sweet Pea Potties”!!!

Thank you 'Sweet Pea Potties'!!!!

Not only was this Sweet Pea Potty fully equipped with toilet paper and hand sanitizer… we also found these  fancy, girly hand napkins! The two guys said the picture and the quote on the napkins couldn’t be more appropriate for me! I agree 😉 Ha ha…!!!!
