Thirsty isn’t Stylish

What is fashionable about 1 in 9 people on this planet not having access to clean water?  Nothing.  What is stylish about carrying a 40 lb jerry can for over an hour to get clean water?  Absolutely nothing – trust me, those jerry cans are REALLY HEAVY!!!!!

This man is stylish.  Philanthropy is in always in fashion.  Scott Harrison, founder of charity:water which has raised over $100 MILLION in just seven years.  Fashionable is renting an old plane, getting tech GAZILLIONAIRES such as Melody McCloskey of StyleSeat, Ed Turner of Facebook,  Divyank Turakhia of media.net and Oliver Ripley of Black Ocean and getting them to pay to go to the unpaved mountain villages in Ethiopia to build wells.  Click the blue to read about this trip.

Fashionable is W Hotels hosting “Walk with Purpose” charity:water’s waterwalk – a runway of sorts where participants carry jerry cans (HEAVY jerry cans) down a runway to raise money for clean water.

W Boston hosted “Walk with Purpose” last night – what a PHENOM event!  The crowd was in full party mode with outfits ranging from bright sunny yellow dresses to suits to floral shorts to short sleeve plaids and even leather leggings.  Clearly Boston is not prepared to let go of summer quite yet!

This event was truly an eye opener to how heavy water is and how fashionable clean water is. The facial expression below is not an exaggeration!
