So excited for #ourearth  and #earthday2013  This week!

#earthday  
This Earth Day, we're taking inspiration from nature's engineers—from remora to bears—to see how they can teach us to treat the environment better. On our website, alongside beautiful photos from National Geographic, you can learn more about the ingenuity of the natural world and some simple actions you can take to care for the environment: http://goo.gl/IFquj

Of course, we also have a doodle for Earth Day. Visit google.com to interact with the doodle and see how the seasons, weather and wildlife are all connected.

Today Is #worldwaterday  and I pledge to...

Do whatever it is that I can to raise awareness for this crisis. With over 780 million families around the world without access to clean water, the call to action needs to start now.

What am I doing? I'm carrying around a bottle of dirty water with me all day. Wherever I go. People sometimes need to see it to believe it. I'm taking my stance, and I'm starting now! 

Join me and share a picture of yourself with your dirty water today for #worldwaterday

I pledge to do my part...

There are 780 Million people without access to clean water and sanitation. This the world's largest health crisis.

Tomorrow is World Water Day.

Tomorrow, join me and hundreds of other Gplussers as we carrying a dirty jug of water with us at all times tomorrow to pledge our advocacy. 

Post a Picture of your dirty water and upload with the hashtag #worldwaterday2013  to raise awareness for this terrible crisis.

Did clean water come out of your tap today?

Can you imagine not having clean water? Not to drink, not to shower, not to do laundry.

This is the daily reality for one in six people worldwide who don't have access to clean water.

Every 20 seconds a child dies as the result of poor sanitation.

You are reading this and thinking, but what can I do about it? 

You can help spread the word, give your time, donate money, and volunteer some of your time.

Wait, you want me to give money? Only give if you are able. Your time and effort is JUST as valuable. The more people who know, the more people who can help.  

Where can I find more information? What organizations are taking donations of money & time?

Days a the park

My favorite part about living in San Francisco is being able to spend an entire day at a park... And being totally okay with it.
