Water.  I don't ever think about how amazing it really is.  Or the fact that at any given moment I can get some fresh, clean, cold water.  From my faucet.  From my refrigerator.  From the market.  From the hose.  Did you know that a lot, I mean A LOT of children go without clean drinking water. I can't imagine not being able to make Lucys bottle or fill the kids water bottles up for school.

Diseases from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation 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 30,000 deaths that occur every week from unsafe water and unhygienic living conditions are of 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.
