Purchase Couch Rebels and Help Give Water to African Communities in Need

Hey there.  Can you imagine a life without water?  We use water for soooooo many things.  We bathe in it, water our grass, clean the dishes, and most importantly, we drink it.  What if I were to tell you that there are many nations out there that do not have the water to drink?  Feels horrible, no?  We are fortunate enough to have water but let's be honest, not many people do.  That's why I love what the guys at CausePub and Blood: Water Mission are doing.  They have written a book that will go on sale tomorrow and the proceeds will go to help bring clean, fresh water to African comminities that need it.  How awesome is that?!  The book is called Couch Rebels and it is a collection of stories from people who had experiences that were outside of their comfort zone and how those expreiences changed them for the best.  An inspirational book for a worthy cause.

Here are some facts about the water situation in Africa:

  • 320 Million Africans are without clean water
  • Water related diseases claim the lives of up to 2,000 children per day
  • Many individuals spend up to 20 hours per week hauling water.
Each copy of Couch Rebels sold will be enough to supply water to 3 individuals.  The goal is to sell at least 15,000 books.  That will change the lives of at least 45,000 people in Africa.  Couch Rebels will be available as an Ebook on Aug. 14th and you can obtain your copy here.  Pick up the book, read inspiring stories, and help save lives.  It's a no brainer folks.  I'm all for charity and whenever I can bring attention to noble cause, you know I will.  Thank you and god bless!  Later!
