Justin Bieber Uses Birthday For Charity: Water

Justin Bieber Charity WaterFor Justin Bieber’s 17th birthday, he asking all of the “Beliebers”  to celebrate his birthday by donating to the Justin Bieber’s Charity: Water page. Justin is asked that his friends, fans and followers donate $17 to charity: water. The money will be used to build clean water projects in developing countries.

“Together, we’ve made a big difference for many causes,” Justin wrote on the page. “Did you know that about 4,500 kids die each day from waterborne disease? By building clean water projects for villages that need them, we can prevent this! I want to make my birthday matter this year — let’s make it so more kids can grow up to have a 17th birthday like me. Join me to make a change.”

Of course, Justin Bieber isn’t the only celebrity working to provide clean water to those who need it. For Adam Lambert’s 29th birthday, he set out to raise $290,000 through his own charity: water page. He did that and more. He extended the challenge to his fans, and as of this writing, his page has received $295,500 in donations.

Alyssa Milano’s mycharity: water campaigns raised over $92,000 for her 37th birthday in 2009, and another $39,551 for her 38th birthday at the end of 2010.

The “Sponge Bob” Crane Ultrasonic Humidifier

Sponge Bob Crane Ultrasonic HumidifierSponge Bob has access to plenty of moisture in his “pineapple under the sea,” but that’s not the case for many of us humans, especially if we live in dry environments. A humidifier is essential to creating a healthy indoor climate. It supplies moisture, providing relief for dry skin, chapped lips, and symptoms associated with cold and flu, including nasal congestion, sinus irritation and dry cough.

The Sponge Bob Crane Humidifier is great for children’s rooms and nurseries to assist with a child’s breathing during cold and flu season and to protect them from problems related to low humidity.  This humidifier features a removable water tank that holds up to a gallon of water, and an auto-off safety function for when the tank becomes empty. A control knob at the top of the unit can be used to regulate the mist output. The Crane Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier runs quietly, is energy efficient, and able to supply moisture for up to 12 hours.

84-year-old Man Survives Five Days in Desert Without Water

windshield wiper fluid84 year old, Henry Morello, was found alive in an Arizona desert after five days of being stranded there. He took a wrong turn while driving home from the Phoenix suburb of Cave Creek on Feb. 7, and ended up in a ditch after making a U-turn.

We thought his survival skills were especially good for a man his age, and worth noting. First he ripped a chrome piece off of his car and put it on the roof hoping someone would see the reflection and find him. His phone and car battery went dead, so he used car mats to stay warm and read a car manual from cover to cover to pass the time. But the most interesting part of it all is how he chose to stay hydrated. Since he didn’t have access to water, he filtered windshield wiper fluid through a napkin and drank it as a substitute.

He was found alive by a group of hikers after five days. Though his kidneys are damaged, he arrived at the hospital in good condition, considering all that he had been through. He learned a few lessons from this adventure, the main one being to never drive without water.

We’d like to reach out to Morello and let him know that his story is a lesson to all. Do not leave the house without your reusable stainless steel water bottle, and make sure it’s full of filtered water before taking a trip. And, in case of an emergency, make sure you have some napkins on hand, in case you do need to drink windshield wiper fluid. (We’ll soon be testing out the filtration skills of a napkin, so stay tuned for a video on that.) In the meantime, get prepared for any emergency that may strike, by stocking your survival kit with these items from Filters Fast. Clearly, Morello would have been much better off with a Katadyn Bottle Water Filter.
