Because of my half Turkish Husband and my affinity for the Evil Eye , the weird and wonderful Eye of Water Fountain fascinated me. Located in Longwood Gardens, Kennett Square PA it was built in 1968, and inspired by a similar fountain seen in Costa Rica, Central America. It sits above the reservoir that serves the main fountain garden of the once grand estate that is now a park. 5,000 gallons of water flow over the eye and are recycled per minute. It is quite a stunning sight to see.
Quite a luxury in a world where a population 3x that of the entire of the United States of America lacks water. What we have in abundance, women around the globe spend a collective 200 million hours a day collecting for their families use.
I have joined The Mission List and Water.org in a ten day challenge to raise awareness about water issues, and help raise funds to change peoples lives. If we work together we can end this crisis in our lifetime. Only $25 brings one person clean water for life. My goal is in ten days to provide water for life to at least ten people. I’d love for you to join me by spreading the word, donating to The Mission List fundraiser, starting your own fundraiser, or just learning more about the water crisis. Together we can make a difference.
