Water Challenge

Day 1 of the WaterChallenge

To make the idea sink in and ensure my resolve is water tight, I went for a swim this morning.

Water is life.

Can you imagine life without clean, accessible water?

For all the thirsty one days in March, the only beverage I’ll drink is water. That means quitting caffeine for a month without any replacements like a dandelion chicory tea.

Over the course of the month, my Instagram stories will be focused on water. No lunch box updates, pics of mamma and son, delectable meals for 1 or 2, highlights of the weekend, brain explosions from grammar lessons or, sadly, latte art. Think waterboarding but gentler, for a good cause.

If you’re feeling my pain, shout me a ‘raise a glass’ pass with a $24 donation and I can break the challenge for 1 day if I really really really need to. Be sure to state that in your donation message.

Not long till April 1. Will I be foolish and order a double espresso or dip my feet back in gently with a chai latte? I have a month to think about it.

I have kickstarted my fundraising by donating my monthly coffee spend (not including home made). The astounding $220 of un-purchased coffees will assist Wateraid in their efforts to make clean water, sanitation and hygiene accessible for all. To help me reach my fundraising goal, sponsor me here.

Thanks xx

  1. How was your swim. What an interesting challenge to raise awareness and take care of your health! I take clean water for granted, it’s true. This is a timely reminder to be aware and do for others. Best of luck.

    1. Hey SB, so nice to hear from you! My swim was lovely. It was my first time in the pool in about 3 weeks because of a cold that lingered. Always nice to be in water and be weightless in mind and body…hope to go again tomorrow morning. Yes, a good reminder for me too. How privilaged to have thr choice to drink *only* clean, accessible water.

      How are you?
