As you may know, WaterAid is an international NGO dedicated exclusively to the provision of safe domestic water, sanitation and hygiene education to the world's poorest people.
This year, for those who want to try something different, Water Aid donations can buy 'Alternative Christmas Gifts' including a gift with a real difference - the H20 Gift Life Card. For £15.00 you can give the gift of safe water this Christmas. That's all it takes to provide one person in Africa and Asia with a lasting supply of safe water. You will receive this attractive card and envelope to send as a special gift with space to write your own personal message. H20 Gift Life Card
Alternatively, you can donate to WaterAid this Christmas and provide water to someone who really needs it. Here is what your donation will buy:

Alternative Christmas Gifts - Year Round By Grant am y HoBB on February 19, 2005
WaterAid needs always to supply clean water for humans thus "Waters need to be kept Clean".
By continuing the programme of Water awareness, publishing books like 'Troubled Waters', understanding the needs of society and holding on to our passions for a better 'tomorrow', we will win through.
I deem it vital to network with those that create the problems and support them with creative solutions – hands-on.
We need to stir the Media of the World to appreciate that this 'vision' is on behalf of every living thing as 'water' has no barriers – we share every drop of it every nano-second, and always have done.
WaterAid need water to be clean water - they need it to be drinkable. WaterAid will have an increasingly difficult job to do if we neglect water so every effort must be made to ensure water remains unpolluted by looking at the 'whole picture' of Troubled Water.
I'd love to see ever closer links between fine groups, internationally, like the Marine Stewardship Council, River Ocean Research Education, Marine Conservation Society, World of Water, Worldwide Fund for Nature etc. pooling our efforts - no pun intended - so that we can all be encouraged by eachother's progressive actions.
Yes, the Waters are troubled but we must be troubled too, and take the trouble to prevent damage to all water habitats from the streams, the raindrops, the Oceans, clouds and our own Body contents.
