So I was recommended this organization by my mother, who heard about it through a friend. It’s an org that works to bring clean water to people in the varying countries that they work. They have an amazingly dynamic and “sexy” website, with all
sorts of ways to connect it to social networks, and all sorts of plugs to our consumer, image-based culture. I don’t mean to say that it’s bad in this way, it’s just really interesting. Take a look at the site to see the way it’s organized. Personally, to me, it was very attractive, though something in it felt a little disconnected from the cause, only due the way it made the whole thing look like something out of Hollywood. Though I’m not sure why I have this notion that real non-profit and development work has to look difficult and depressing all the time.
Anyways, please check out the site. I’ve included in this post some videos and pictures you can find there. It’s a lot of fun!
