Once in a while we need to step back and look at the bigger picture and that’s exactly what one of our own is doing right now. Shakil Khan has given himself the pretty spectacular challenge of raising $100,000 for charity: water – a very worthwhile cause.
In Shak’s own words:
Did you know that…?
…right now, almost a billion people on the planet don’t have access to clean, safe drinking water, That’s one in eight of us.
…unsafe water and a lack of basic sanitation kills 42,000 people every week, That’s more than all forms of violence, including war.
…90% of these deaths are children under five years old.
Well neither did I, until I met Amanda Rose and Chris Sacca a year ago, and they introduced me to charity: water.
