ACTivism: Blue Planet Run

Now that Steptember is coming to an end, do you need an excuse to get moving in October? How about doing it to fund getting safe water to kids in Tanzania?

If that sounds up your alley then take the Blue Planet Run 30-Mile Challenge. All you have to do is donate $30 and pledge to run, walk, or cycle 30 miles in 30 days this October. That's only one mile a day; you can totally do that! You'll get the satisfaction of knowing that you moved a total of 30 miles (at least) in one month and your $30 pledge will then provide water to one person for life — it's a win-win situation. For more information, to sign up, and to donate, check out BluePlanetRun.org.

Thank you for posting this! I was in Tanzania on my honeymoon last December, and I watched people walk over three miles each way just to get clean water to drink because their well had been damaged. It was heart-breaking. A lady at the hotel I was staying in said, "I wish someone somewhere would send some aid money to help them fix their well." Thank you, thank you, thank you for connecting me with this organization!
