Grey Eagle Children Raise Money for Africa Water is Life
During the month of July, the amazing children of The Woods of Grey Eagle neighborhood raised over $1000 for Africa Water is Life to give people in rural villages in Africa clean water. Africa Water is Life is a community engagement initiative here in Fishers that raises money and awareness for water wells in rural villages of Africa. In partnership with World Hope International, Africa Water is Life will help save lives in developing countries in Africa by drilling wells to provide clean, sustainable water to thousands of people.
By selling lemonade, baked goods, golf balls and going door to door, the children really took ownership of the project. Sisters Christy and Julie Nelson pooled their babysitting money and gave a percentage back to the cause….$175! Not bad for a child’s donation. Any child that raised $25 or more won a free Water is Life t-shirt.
It costs just $3,500 to give an average community of 700 people clean water for the next 20 years. That’s just $5 to change a person’s life. Water is Life….teach your kids to pay it forward!
