Clean Water Celebration~ Thanks for the $40,000, Google!

Be praised, My Lord, through Water; 
she is very useful, and humble, 
and precious, and pure.

-Francis of Assisi

A shout-out to those of you who helped rate businesses on Google hotpot.
After two weeks, over 47,000 ratings were posted on-line, 
which means Google will be writing 
Charity:Water a check for $40,000!

Two weeks ago, I posted about the Students for Clean Water Organization at the University of Texas.  They had partnered with Google hotpot in an effort to raise money to build water wells and proper sanitation at schools in third world countries.  The two week "rate for a cause" ended with a wonderful party hosted by google at Bar 96 in Austin.  I was delighted to attend with my friend Delisa Yates~  Here are a few pictures from the event!
Google brought all kinds of fun stuff to the party~
and food and drinks for a crowd!
The Google staff was delightful and thrilled with the success of the 
first-ever "rate for a cause!"

Please check out the Charity:Water website and consider loving folks around the world 
by giving them precious, pure drinking water.
