Thankyou Water.

A week ago, I went to a talk by Daniel Flynn, founder of Thankyou Water- An Australian social enterprise which helps to provide safe water for people in developing countries such as Cambodia and Uganda. At 19 years old, when most of us are more interested in getting through school, or generally, partying and having a good time, Daniel had the idea of turning Australia's $600 million bottled water industry, to help/be part of a solution for the 900 million people in developing countries, who do not have access to safe water.  Come to think of it, it is pretty stupid, to pay $2 or $3 for a bottled water, when most of us could easily get clean, potable water from the tap. So, why not come up with a brand of bottled water, which you could buy, and help people have access to safe water at the same time. Thankyou Water is the brain child of Daniel and his friends, and they are committed to providing  water, for 900 million people in developing countries who do not have access to safe water. Do take a minute and watch the video, and visit Thankyou Water's website- It is truly an amazing story, and a really good cause. x
