3.19 {Whatever Wednesday} #WorldWaterDay

Whatever Wednesday — a chance to post something I’ve seen that I’m diggin’: a cool quote or poster, a video, or simply a picture.

Enjoy!… and consider posting your own Whatever.

March 22 is….

All this week I’m running videos during the school announcements publicizing the day and the needs around the world. This has become an issue close to my heart, thanks in part to A Long Walk to Water and our #ReadWalkWater initiative.

I borrowed clips from water organizations and added a little here and there.

Here are the videos in the order they’ll be shown. I’m particularly proud of the last one.

Feel free to use any of these in your classroom or hunt down your own. And don’t forget to search Twitter using #WorldWaterDay or #WaterDay on Instagram.

If you want to see more pictures of our walk and the work that Ugandan Water Project did on their recent trip—including visiting “our” tanks—check out these Facebook links:

  1. Hey David
    Very inspiring story. I am the LMS at my school and we are going to read Long Walk to Water this spring in our 6th grade ELA classes. I wondered if there was some way to piggy back off of your idea of the water walk and reading the book. I know that your students have already completed their walk etc. Would you be interested in a Skype visit with our 6th grade students if we were to try to complete your challenge only this spring?

    • Absolutely! I think that would be great! Are you connected with an organization yet? I’m pretty sure Ugandan Water Project would make a trip to present to your kiddos. Keep me posted!

  2. David –
    You can count on Mom and I to support you on your upcoming trip to Uganda. God will bless your trip and everyone will benefit. You make us PROUD!!!

    • Thanks for checking it out. I’m glad you noticed the last one in particular. The water issue seems to pop up everywhere I go—or perhaps I’m just more aware.

      I need to raise some money to help cover the trip. I’m trusting it will all work out—it’s a great Cause.
