ONE DROP Marks
World Water Day
SUPPORT WORLD WATER DAY : DIGG FOR WATER
World Water Day is held each March 22nd as a means of drawing attention to the importance of freshwater and the sustainable management of freshwater sources.
To mark World Water Day, ONE DROP is drawing attention to the cause on Digg, Facebook , Twitter and many other popular social networks in a grassroots effort called Ripple.
DIGG FOR WATER and vote for our stories today. This effort will hopefully allow us to collectively take the front page on Digg and to make Web audiences sensitive to the urgency of action to tackle Global Water Crisis.
Everything stars with ONE DROP. One Digg. Here's your chance to start a ripple effect.
Help us raise awareness for the Global Water Crisis and World Water Day, March 22, 2009, by Digging our stories and inviting others to do the same:
