TIMEOUT! Humankind Water's normal homepage is on hold for two months. Why? Because there is a nationwide contest coming in March that could multiply the number of lives we are able to save exponentially. HOW SO? WalMart, yes, THAT WalMart, is having a competition called "Get on the Shelf". It's like "American Idol" except for products, not singers. Whichever product gets the most votes in their voting period (starting March 7) will win a spot on WalMart's shelves. The money that we could make selling HKW at the world's biggest retailer is mind boggling. READ THIS NEXT PART TWICE: WE HAVE ALREADY COMMITTED TO GIVING 100% OF OUR NET PROFITS TO THIS CRISIS IF WE WIN.
Think about it. Would you still want to win the lottery even if you knew the only way you could win would be to give away all the money? Would winning still be satisfying? We hope your answer is yes. We think that winning this contest will net so much money that it will seem like we won the lottery. BUT NOT FOR US. We want to win this "lottery" for some of the 10,000 children dying every day for the ridiculous, and PREVENTABLE cause: They died because they had no clean water to drink.
Very soon, we will be replacing this page with our "War Room". A page completely dedicated to winning this contest. But even before we get that up and running, you can help us prepare.
We are trying to organize as many "Vote Humankind Water" parties as possible. Schools, Youth Groups, Scouts, Churches, Universities, willing to get a bunch of people together once the voting starts and vote, vote, vote. We've already had more than one school commit to giving 10,000 votes during the voting period. That won't happen as people casually mention the cause and the contest. We are getting ORGANIZED. Please let us know if you're willing to have your group stuff that ballot box with us. It's all perfectly legit. The rules clearly state that individuals can vote as often as they like. Even if it's not a group, one person can really help. Every vote counts.
How else can you help? "Like" us on facebook. "Share" our story with all of your friends. And as soon as the war room is up and running, give us your email address so we can keep you up to date on our progress.
We know you came to a website to hear about the cause, or read about the most delicious natural spring water anywhere in the world. Those pages are still important -- but right now our fixed stare is on winning "Get on the Shelf" (or as we like to call it, "WalMart Idol"). This opportunity is once-in-a-lifetime. Start talking us up to your friends right now...and when you do, refer to Humankind Water as "we", not "they". First person, plural, please. We want you on our team. LET'S WIN THIS THING AND GET SERIOUS ABOUT SAVING A HUGE NUMBER OF LIVES. Thanks for joining our team!
God bless you.
