I received some emails from my last post. Needless to say it’s quite hard to swallow certain facts-like spending 450 Billion on x-mas presents and yet it takes 10 Billion to bring clean water to our world. Anyhow, for those who want to corroborate the data here is the needed info.

Rick McKinley was quoted in the article called The Advent Conspiracy in the current issue of Relevant Magazine. Rick started a anti-consumerism x-mas movement called Advent Conspiracy. If you are not familiar please check out the link and get involved to stop the silly consumerism in America.

I could not find a link to the article, but you can read the article under the “current issue” tab on Relevant Mag’s site.

Below are list of org’s that are tackling the water issue’s that our world is facing.

  1. thanks for this — I knew it was a lot but never in my wildest dreams thought it was that much. And there is so much more money at stake when you think about all of the food, candies, parties, etc people make and go to. I took your inspiration and wrote about it on my blog and made a challenge for myself and others. I determined that 10 Billion dollars is 2.3% o 450B. So the challenge is to give 5% of what you spent on gifts this Christmas to a organization to help provide clean water. We must be a voice who have no voice! http://www.brianleimone.com & http://www.riverchurchlive.com

  2. Thanks Brian for breaking down the numbers, compelling and convicting.
