Bravo to Readers:
My warmest thanks to all of you who donated to the STEALING DEATH Water for Life Challenge. Your donations helped bring clean drinking water to children and families in sub-Saharan Africa.

Why I support Water for People:
While researching drought-ridden sub-Saharan Africa to create a realistic landscape for STEALING DEATH, I learned more than one billion people in the world do not have access to clean water. And that water-related diseases take the lives of 6,000 people a day.

STEALING DEATH Water for Life Challenge became a key part of the fall book-launch. Through speaking engagements and website donations, we successfully raised awareness of the global water crisis and raised funds for clean drinking water.

The water crisis is on-going, so are the solutions:
PlayPumps International has joined Water for People to continue the work of bringing clean drinking water to schools and communities in sub-Saharan Africa.

A Word about Water for People:
"Water For People envisions a world where no one suffers or dies from a water-related illness. Some may say that’s too lofty a goal, but frankly we have high expectations. They lead us to succeed in our 11 country programs so that we can change the world for millions.”

When clean water well pumps are installed, families no longer have to heft water from miles away. They can enjoy clean drinking water pumped directly to villages and schools.

Let us continue to give that others may live.
