the proceeds to improve the water supply in Ethiopia via
Catholic relief services... There are many areas of the world
where clean drinking water is not available.

donation of that system to an area in need... Pay for coffee for
the person behind you at the coffee shop... Take a cold glass of

formula to a Pregnancy Help Center... Work a drink station at a
local charity event or race. So many opportunities, so little tim
