RYAN'S WELL

In November Pattie, from FoodShed Planet , invited all blog readers to band together and see how much the internet can unite people in a common cause to help their fellow humans. Don't let the year slip by without giving it some thought. Please help dig some wells for the people who don't even have enough clean water just to drink. You don't need a pick and shovel just a big heart. It is stinking hot in Adelaide today but we can turn on a tap and quench our thirst whenever we like. Imagine watching your children dehydrate before your eyes....

We can all donate to the one project and really help it along by clicking on RYAN'S WELL and making a donation, then typing into the comments section :
"FoodShed Planet Friends for Kajiado".

If you don't want to donate online, you can give me the money next week at the picnic and I will donate it all from the Hills and Plains Seedsavers.

Kate: Thanks for doing this! A reminder: Ryan is a 16-year-old boy from Canada who has built wells in hundreds of communities around the world in the past ten years. I love the idea of Canada, the United States and Australia working together like this! Please pass Kate's post on to anyone you think might be interested! We only have to raise $15,000 US dollars for Ryan to have enough to build that well. And maybe we can send Flat Stanley there for the dedication ceremony!
