With the new year already upon us we should keep in mind of our gratitude and thankfulness for the resources that we have readily available to us here in the United States. For many, however, this is not the case. Water is seen by some to be magical and a gift of life. Let’s take the time today and every day to be thankful for our basic necessities, that may seem small to us, but are truly the key factors needed in life. By donating to Walking for Water, we are able to supply thousands of people with clean drinking water throughout Africa and India. Remember that Walking for Water is always open for donations at wisdomspring.org

Here is the weekly water fact from @indy.keyclub ‘s Water Fact Wednesday! Did you know that a person can live about a month without food, but only a week without water? Water is so powerful, and is life. While you are having a glass of water, millions of people in third-world countries have to walk miles just to obtain a small portion of it. Let us not take this for granted, and let us fight to make sure that every single person in the world doesn’t go a day without drinking clean water. ...

In the Dagara tradition this year is about authenticity, magic, moving through challenges and changes, joy, transformation,trickster energy and the year to plant and grow. So I am asking myself and you What do you want to grow? How can you nurture yourself and trust

When I was small I took a twig from a weeping willow tree because I loved the tree and my Grandmother(Nanny) told me it would grow. I trusted her and believed. I had no doubts. I put it in the earth and watched it grow. It was my trees it grew with me. It was my place of refuge.
So I as each of us to take time and ask yourself what do you want to grow? I know I want to grow awareness, truth and trust in myself, so that I can more easily see how my unconscious can take me to places that take me away from truth.
...

While I was in Leesburg to meet with my Walking for Water teens. Many of you know it has been difficult to get back into Burkina Faso because of their struggles and the loss of Sobonfu. Needless to say my heart lies in West Africa. We have still helped in Kenya and all over India bringing water and education but unable to get into the area where my heart is called.

While in Leesburg I always go to the local Grocery store (Giant), and get my basic essentials (WATER). While there, I hear an accent (of course to me I always think it is someone from West Africa), but of course most of the time I am only 50% right. I think to myself Susan STOP you are making things up in your head. Well, right at that moment my $20 bill gets stuck and a beautiful woman with the accent comes to help. I can tell she is struggling with her day and I am sure she is struggling even more because of me. Phone ringing me saying ”where are you from”? She doesn’t respond and of course I can’t help myself I ask again. She responded with I can’t wait to move home this place isn’t for me. I want to help my people and bring education and water. We have saved up and are moving back in June. I then ask where are you from? She replies, “West Africa.” I get a full body rush of goose bumps. I can tell she feels it too. I say “I am here to support our youth in loudoun county and laguna beach schools to bring water and education to indigenous villages.” She starts to cry and I do too. I feel this energy move through us both. This happened in early October and since then her, her husband, my board, well drillers have spoken and our plans are to bring water to Togo and education. Everything looks like a go! I will travel in July to see it happen, but first I need to raise the money to do so.
Giving Tuesday is tomorrow and I am asking for you to bring clean water to Togo and education and to support us in bringing it to many locations in India too. We are a 501-c3 and if you have any questions or want our EIN number please reach out to me!

Approximately 67% of the population in Togo, Africa has access to clean water while only 75% can obtain this water within a walking distance of 30 minutes. Not only do the Togolese struggle to find drinking water, but bathroom facilities as well. Because of climate change, water scarcity is affecting countries all over Africa due to disproportionate supplies of rainfall, occurring in both floods and droughts. Help be apart of the fight for clean, accessible water today by joining Walking For Water and donating to wisdomspring.org
