Joni Abdalla accepted the #4Liters Challenge. Have you?
Occupation: While I do work for our family business from home, my primary work (and joy) is caring for my my five kids.
Why did you sign up for The 4Liter Challenge? I NEED this challenge. My family NEEDS this challenge. Every time we turn on our faucet, clean water rushes out–even at our desired temperature. It is very difficult for me (and my family) to imagine that almost 1 billion people in the world do not experience such a luxury. The only way that my family and I can even come close to understanding this suffering is to experience it. I am most excited about this challenge for two reasons: first, I am looking forward to actually being a part of the solution to global water poverty by raising needed funds and awareness. Secondly, I cannot wait for my children to begin to comprehend that, while we do not want for much of anything, that so many, many people do and that it is our responsibility to help others.
How many days did you sign up for? I signed my family up for 2 days.
Any fears about living on just 4 liters of water per day? No. No fears at all. Is it going to be comfortable? No. Is it going to be easy? No. Are my kids going to complain? Yes. Am I going to have to get creative with cooking, bathing, cleaning and drinking? Oh, yes. Any fears? No. Nothing worth anything is easy. We are ready for this challenge. We have discussed it and we look forward to changing the way we consume and think about water.
Have you ever thought about water poverty? I’ve read about water poverty. I’ve seen pictures of people with yellow jerry cans on their heads having walked a great distance for water. But that’s about it. When you have, in plenty, what others do not, it’s difficult to comprehend the magnitude of the problem without experiencing it yourself. That’s why I’m thankful to DIGDEEP for this opportunity.
What would you say to someone that’s debating signing up? There is no need to debate any longer. It’s a challenge for only a few days that will change peoples lives forever. How cool is that?
The #4Liters Challenge will change the way you think about water.
