Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Clean, safe, accessible water is an issue around the globe. So how can I make an impact on the output of a company who provides clean water to those who need it?

I am unemployed.

I am not yet an adult.

I have not started uni yet.

But I want to make an impact

So how could I possibly help a company? Donations are out of the question; I have nothing to donate. Visiting the sites which the company helps would be fun, but is once again out of the question.

So what do I do? I advertise.

So help me and together we will make a group effort, or well, that's what I am hoping.


-> Helping people in Ethiopia, Bangladesh, Hondura and India

-> [www.water1st.org]

-> so spread the word

Mention Water 1st International in your blogs (anything from a sentence to a paragraph), write 'how are you evoking?' things about it, or twitter. Use any means necessary.

Together we are stronger. Together we can make a bigger impact.

Amber - You have one very important thing to give. This thing is born out of your circ**stances but is not a negative, it is the most precious thing any of us can give to someone or something else...TIME!

Advertising and spreading the word is one thing you can do with your valuable asset but perhaps it could be used for other things as well. Contact the company, step out from the shadows and offer 1stWater your time. I promise you they will be very, very grateful and have a raft of things that are both important to them and challenging to you to make best use of that resource.

Time + Purpose = Valuable Change

Yeah, I see your point. I think I might contact the company, well a few companies, and see if I can help any way. Thanks I think that was the lil' bit of motivation I needed. I'll blog about any developments in my new project ^^

I came across this a LONG time ago - I've never bothered to really research to see if in fact the water does get donated, but if anything it'll improve your geo skills ! There's also www.freerice.com (which DOES work) but that's for food ;)

I remember freerice.com I used to spend ages on there a few years back. It's strangely addictive ^^

But thanks, I'll check it out =]

Good post--how fortunate your friends and colleagues will be when you do start university; your "free-time" experiences with EVOKE and elsewhere can help you to build valuable perspectives on food security, water security, etc.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ**stances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
