McCarter Stinks So Others Can Drink….. And Go To School

Greetings Fellow Humans,
This week I am participating in a Shower Strike to raise money to help provide access to clean water in Africa. You would be justified in asking the questions, “What does access to clean water have with going to school?” In many areas of Africa children, specifically young girls, are forced to miss school to travel long distances to haul water from remote, and often dirty, sources back to their villages. Specifically women and young girls spend about of 6 hours per day fetching water for use in their homes and villages. Also, it is common practice for schools in Africa to send children home if they are too dirty because they don’t have the water at home to bathe themselves regularly. This is a deplorable situation. Providing access to clean water in these communities increases the Education Rate by 38% overall and 58% for girls.
Well Aware is a non-profit organization that works with local communities in Africa to drill sustainable wells in Africa that is putting on this Shower Strike. Today is Match Day, which means that any donation you make will be matched by various companies around the world and more wells can be drilled. Donating today is a great way to increase the impact of your donation!
I am pretty stinky, as you can see in this picture, and my students would also really appreciate you donating so I can stop grossing them out with my armpit stench. PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING ANY AMOUNT HOWEVER SMALL. If you donate $20 or more, I will have one of the well technicians bring you back some rock samples from one of the wells they drill this summer!

MASC Camping Trip Itinerary Document

Hey everyone, the trip is getting close! I went down to the Smoky Mountains over Spring Break to poke around and see where we’ll be going. I want to reiterate the importance of bringing warm layers. One of the nights I was there it dipped below freezing and there was a hard frost on my tent. It is possible that this could be the case while we’re there as well.

Below is a link to the document that I passed out at the meeting before break. Some people asked if I could post it here.
