But as we sit in the lap of luxury, reading poetry, analysing politics, playing scrabble and taking the internet for granted, billions of people around the globe are not just thirsting for KNOWLEDGE but for clean water...
This week, I'd like to join Java's Wordless Wednesday blog hop to inform you about the biggest blog event ever:
BLOG ACTION DAY 2010: WATER
brings 3,528 blogs from 125 countries together on October 15.
"Blog Action Day is an annual event held every October 15 that unites the world’s bloggers in posting about the same issue on the same day with the aim of sparking a global discussion and driving collective action." (from change.org)
And because a photo says a thousand words - here's my first ever Wordless Wednesday contribution...

If you want to take action - even if it is in a small way - hop aboard!
