Wheels for Wells!!!

Did you know that nearly 1 billion people in the world lack access to clean water? A simple thing that we take for granted every day can mean the difference between life and death. Unsafe drinking water causes over 2 million deaths every year, and most are children. Every day, nearly 4,500 children die from water-related illnesses such as diarrhea, malaria, typhoid, cholera, worms, and parasites. Clean water means generations of healthy children, families, and entire communities. It costs $15,000 to drill a deep bore well – and so we skated…

We were excited for the opportunity to help others in such a fun way! The boys both did extra chores to help earn money and Ryan went around the house collecting our spare change and found $25. My parents also made a donation (thank you Grammy and Pappy). I love how our church members have such a heart for missions and for those who are less fortunate than us. Brendan and Ryan skated for almost 4 hours and Ryan even won a door prize!

Brendan and I rode back to Skateland after dinner to cheer on those who were still skating and to see if we won any grand prizes. When we left, we were only $500 away from the $15,000 goal and…wait for it…Ryan won another door prize! He is soooo happy!!!

One thought on “Wheels for Wells!!!

  1. I’m so proud of you, Amy, Brendan and Ryan for giving of your time, even a fun time of skating, to help those who need clean water! Little children and their families will have clean water because of you and other CSBC family’s caring hearts!

    Thank you and I love you all very much!

    Grammy
