Clean Water...what can you do?

Click HERE to view their auction site
Georganne (my ma-in-law) is involved with Women of Vision in their area and they have come up with an online auction to raise money for their project in Zambia to bring clean water to the people there. By registering to bid and joining in the FUN, you are choosing to help Women of Vision of Kittitas County raise the needed funds to drill 3 boreholes in an area of Southern Zambia known as Sinazongwe. People in this region suffer from extreme poverty, drought, famine, with an average annual income of $500. There are high rates of diarrhea and other waterborne illnesses because there are not enough sources of clean water. In addition, Women of Vision serves their local community by supporting FISH, a food bank helping those in need. All donations are TAX-DEDUCTIBLE.
A lot of the items are specific to the Northwest but others could be nationwide. Please help us out by passing this website on to anyone you know who might be interested! The auction takes place September 15th -20th and will resemble an ebay auction. You can go on now to view some of the items and register! Please visit their auction site to see how you can help by bidding on a number of wonderful items including vacations, sporting events and more!
