River To Well: Photo Contest for a Cause

Hey everybody!


"VISUALIZE THIS: A jumbo jet full of children, crashing every four hours – that's the impact of unsafe water. By the time you've read this, a child has died from a water-related disease – every 20 seconds."  Man, if that's not a powerful visualization about how important this cause is, I don't know what is.  I pulled this info from the River To Well website, of which I was recently introduced.  


A ton of mutual facebook friends brought me in contact with somebody from this organization, and I felt immediately like I should help.  I already have a passion for this cause, and I've already given to organizations who drill wells twice this year, totaling nearly a thousand dollars.  I don't like talking about money ever, but I do think it's important to explain that the money you give directly impacts real life/death situations for communities (and children in those communities).  


Let's do this together!  If you enter a photograph in the contest, the entry fee (100%) is donated to the cause.  For everyone who shows me that they entered the contest and paid the fee, I'll donate $20, up to $500 (which means we together will have raised $875!!). (email me: dale@benfieldphotography.com to show you entered)  It'll be great!  Let's do it!


Matthew 25:40 - The King will answer and say to them, 'Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.'
