I was searching for info on Rob Bell and found the Mars Hill website and came across this cool fundraising idea.

MH is raising funds for WaterAid. The walk is only 2.4 miles. Walkers walk 1.2 miles to gather water and return with water (adults 10 liters/children 4 liters).

Thought this might be a cool idea for groups/individuals hoping to raise funds for B:WM.

Cool!
Hanson has been promoting similar walks since last year to help promoting their latest album The Walk, besides raising funds for African aid, one idea is selling "Tom's shoes" where all profits go to Africa. Walk and shoes connected.

Buy a BWM water bottle or make a donation to support the project.

This is how Hanson is continuously supporting also the BWM, with their Talking the Walk project.




Just got Hanson's Taking the Walk book and EP, it is an awesome insight on the incredible work they've been leading for Africa.

The book also mentions BWM as one of the organizations fighting for the same cause.


OUR GOAL

To drill 1 new well in Africa

A clean water well costs just $3,000 and will transform the health and life of a village. Women and children will no longer spend their days walking long distances to get dirty water and suffering with preventable diseases.

Keep an eye on the graph to the right to see how close we are to drilling a well, and to see how many miles have been walked for this cause.
