August Contest for Charity: water:

I would really like to see us raise some funds for the Charity: Water project this month, so I've put together a little CONTEST to get things started. The prizes are yo-yos, yeah, YO-YOS!
My husband used to work for Yomega Yo-Yos and travel around the country going to malls to teach kids how to do yo-yo tricks. He now sells them online, and we have some really good yo-yos that we can give away.
I have 2 Duncan basic 'design your own' (with stickers or markers) yo-yos that will go to the first two to raise/donate at least $10. And one Duncan Imperial yo-yo for the person who has the largest amount raised.
As a bonus, my husband, Gus, will give a Skype yo-yo trick lesson to the person who raises $50 or more. He can show you how to do all the basic tricks and some other really cool tricks. All winners will get extra yo-yo string and some Crowdrise temporary tattoos!

This first contest is ONLY for people who are on my Charity: water project, so join the team!

I don't even know to to begin to tell you about all the great things charity: water has already done, this is some information taken from their site, which is a great site by the way. Please stop by their web page to see all they have accomplished and all what they will accomplish with our help; donate what you can, or at the very least spread awareness.

"Unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation cause 80% of diseases and kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Children are especially vulnerable, as their bodies aren't strong enough to fight diarrhea, dysentery and other illnesses.

90% of the 42,000 deaths that occur every week from unsafe water and unhygienic living conditions are to children under five years old. Many of these diseases are preventable. The UN predicts that one tenth of the global disease burden can be prevented simply by improving water supply and sanitation.

In Africa alone, people spend 40 billion hours every year just walking for water. Women and children usually bear the burden of water collection, walking miles to the nearest source, which is unprotected and likely to make them sick. Time spent walking and resulting diseases keep them from school, work and taking care of their families. They're subjected to a greater risk of harassment and sexual assault. With safe water nearby, women are free to pursue new opportunities and improve their lives."
