Today, for the fifth day in our month-long exploration of charitable organizations worthy of your time and money, we are talking about water. Waterkeeper Alliance is an organization that champions clean water and strong communities in a rather unique way, by giving each body of water its own champion. Each Waterkeeper program is headed by a full-time Waterkeeper who is the the public advocate for that body of water. The Waterkeeper is essentially the guardian of the particular watershed and the people who rely on its services. The Waterkeeper Alliance is a coalition of more than 160 local Waterkeepers who patrol and protect their local waterbody, standing up to polluters and guaranteeing everyone's right to clean water. One of the ways to help the Waterkeepers is to become an eAdvocate and sign up for their action alerts.
This week you can also splurge for this good cause. This year,Waterkeeper Alliance has partnered with charitybuzz for an online auction which ends on Dec 7, 2007
which is part of the 16th Annual Deer Valley Celebrity Ski fest. The top lot for the online auction is the Lexus LS 600h L which has a 430+ horsepower V8 full-hybrid engine. Other auction lots include a visit to the set of Law & Order: SVU, a heli-skiing trip for four, lunch with William Baldwin on the set of Dirty, Sexy Money, dinner with Nick Lachey or the chance to go falconing with Robert Kennedy Jr.
