Last week I did the 4 Liters water challenge where I used 4 Liters of water within a 24 hour period for three days for everything! Drinking, cooking, cleaning, bathing, etc… It was a busy week so sadly I haven’t posted about my experience until now. Here’s how I managed to use only 4 Liters of water through photos: Measured out liter by liter
I used hand sanitizer to keep clean even when I was out and about
I dampened a cloth and used that to clean my dishes
All clean! (Perhaps a little hard to tell because of the darkness but I promise it was clean.)
Since I was out and about and speaking I wore makeup. How does one take off eye makeup with little to no use of water? I used what I normally use… coconut oil! I applied it on top of the makeup all over my eye, rubbing off the eyeliner and mascara and then used a tissue and wiped it all off. I’ll try to post photos of this later!
The morning after day 2… my greasy hair! 😉
Once again this was a powerful experience and reminder of those who suffer from water poverty and how spoiled most of us are to turn on every facet in the house and have a stream of water at our disposal at any time of day for all the amount we desire!
It’s not too late to donate and bring clean water to those who don’t have any! Please donate here at my 4 Liter water challenge profile!
I also encourage you to take the 4 Liter water challenge and experience it for yourself! 4 Liter Challenge For more information go to Dig Deep
Here’s a great article by Dig Deep’s founder George McGraw “When Water Poverty Hits Home”
My friends and I are washing and shaving using a hose and a bucket while on a mission trip on a mountain in Mexico. Many of the people we were serving did not have running water. Help me bring clean water to those who don’t have access! Donate at my 4 liters Profile. 100% of your donation to Dig Deep goes to water wells and education to those who don’t have clean water.
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:

Tonight I’m getting ready to live on 4 liters of water a day for two days. I’m close to making my fundraising goal for Dig Deep! It’s not too late to donate and bring clean water to those who don’t have the access that we do. You can donate and follow me the next two days of the challenge here at my 4 Liters Profile
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
