In Rob Bell's words.

A year or so ago I heard about a group that were raising money to drill wells for people who don't have access to clean drinking water and then posting videos online of the new wells gushing water. I thought "Brilliant."

Then I heard that they were funding their administrative costs through other channels so that every dollar a person gave them was spent drilling more wells. Again, brilliant.

And then I heard how they were exploring new technologies in order to allow a person to see on a map the exact GPS location of the well they had helped fund. Again, amazing.

Who are the people behind all of this? The group is called charity:water and they're a non profit organization devoted to alleviating the global water crisis one well at a time. After spending time with their founder Scott Harrison and learning more about how they operate, I thought "If everybody knew what these folks were up to they'd want in on it..."

So that's what I'm compelled to do on this Drops Like Stars tour - I want to introduce you to charity:water so that you can be a part of what they're doing to help the one in six people in the world don't have access to clean drinking water.

That's a billion people. Which means it's going to take a lot of us. So join us. Because if we all get in on this, well, that would, of course, be brilliant.

Right now, almost a billion people on the planet don't have access to clean and safe drinking water. That's one in eight of us.
