I couldn't find a thread put this, so I decided to start a new one. I'm not trying to toot my own horn or anything like that, I'm just excited about this project because it is new to me and I'm wondering what other people do since we are so blessed to make a decent living. Some of us do good things to try to improve the world around us a little bit. I used to work with young boys (and girls) as a program director with our local Boy Scout Council. I have helped nail together houses for Habitat for Humanity, an amazing program. I have feed homeless people from a soup kitchen in downtown Atlanta. My wife has been heavily involved for years with a local food pantry to help feed people, sometimes I go in and help on Saturday morning. I'm excited about this, my new church is heavily involved in domestic and international mission work. We send teams into Haiti and Honduras several times a year, and this is a new twist we added recently. We were asked to buy a water filter for $50, the goal was to buy 300. We doubled that goal with no problem and are still going strong. Clean water is a serious problem in impoverished areas, most deaths are caused by diseases due to unclean habits. This simple filter is attached to a 5 gallon bucket, it will produce 150 gallons of clean water a day for ten years. It can easily be back flushed to clean it out. This is enough to provide two families with plenty of clean water. The Filter Technology - Global Effect, Inc.
