The Money is Not an Issue Plan (Water)

Use the Get it All at Once Plan (see below) and also consider making a similar size donation to your local food pantry the same day.  If you have the room in your designated storage area, consider creating a supply meant to share with your neighbors in the event of a disaster.

The Get it All at Once Plan (Water)
If you can afford it and have the room to store it, get your 2-week supply today. A family of four can expect to pay $75 and more; an individual $20 and more.

Also, consider donating to worldwide water relief.  To a Christian the idea that people around the world are going without clean water is something we shouldn’t be able to stomach.  Jesus is the source of living water!  If we can provide for clean water to others around the world, how clear a connection so they will be drawn to His living water.

You may be in just the right position to sponsor a well or take a moment to provide a money donation to an organization that specializes in getting clean water to people. Sadly you’ll need to check the charity to be sure it is really doing what it says.  Give to an organization with which you are familiar or check reviews to do your best to find a legitimate and reputable charity.
