Hippos Transforming Lives

A link to this contest entry on a friend's facebook status introduced me to Hippo Water International. The "hippo" (blue thing above) allows people to collect 5 times the amount of water they might be able to carry -- enough for 5 people a day which improves sanitary conditions. In addition, as the organization notes, less time spent acquiring water means more time for other, more productive and educational tasks. I'll be adding this to the list of NGOs I like to support; you can get involved -- via donations, partnerships, or volunteering -- here.
