So today I made an announcement in BIG church for charity water!  I was so scared to talk in front of everybody!  As my time was coming closer, my friends had to hold my hands to calm me down because I was shaking so bad!  I almost had a meltdown.  Mr. Tom gave me the famous nod to come up to the front because I was almost up.  So I went up to the podium and... it was a success!  We raised over $1,000 today just from t-shirt and water bottle sales and donations!!  I'm so thankful for all the great people in my church!   Now we are 73% of the way done!  And we still have 59 days left!  I'm so excited to be a part of this project and I can't wait for this well to be built!

Here We Go!

   So I'm kinda new at this blogging stuff but i thought it would be really fun and interesting to write things down that I'm thinking about or whatever!
   Something I have been passionate about lately is an organization called charity:water.  It is an awesome thing!  They raise money and build fresh water wells for people in third-world countries who walk miles to get to a little muddy water hole.  Water is something we can't survive without and people are dying everyday because they do not have clean water!  That's just crazy!  Here I am taking my time in a hot shower, drinking clean water whenever I want, and wasting it!  People are very unaware of what is going on in different parts of the world and I think it is our job as Christians to do something about it!
   My awesome cousin Travis was the one who told me about charity:water and he and his friends raised over $5,000 to build a well!  So, I thought my youth group could do the same!  So far we have raised over $2,000 which is awesome!  We still need $3,000 and with God's help I know we can do it!  But we also need everyone else's help too.  :)
