…ended a few minutes ago, but, er, I felt it would be better to make a late post than no post (way to make a first impression here, though, right?)
Blog Action Day is a yearly event that has bloggers all around the world focusing on one issue, in order to raise awareness and promote discussion. This year’s issue is access to clean water. The United Nations has recently declared access to clean water a human right. However, nearly one billion people struggle to find and get clean water, and that struggle has lead to disease, death, and even war.
You can find more information here, as well as sign a petition thanking the UN’s Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon for his work on behalf of those struggling due to lack of water.
