Blue Planet Run | Water is life. Pass it on.

Blue Planet Run Foundation is dedicated to raising global awareness about the lack of safe drinking water, and funding working solutions today for the billion people living without ready access to this life sustaining resource. Since 2004, the U.S.-based foundation has funded 18 non-governmental organizations worldwide which have in turn implemented 142 sustainable water projects in 14 countries impacting 137 thousand lives. The Foundation's signature awareness and fundraising event is the Blue Planet Run, the first-ever around-the-world relay run.


Blue Planet Run provides readers with an extraordinary look at the water problems facing humanity and some of the hopeful solutions being pursued by large and small companies, by entrepreneurs and activists, and by nongovernmental organizations and foundations. By the end of the book, readers are left to form their own conclusions as to whether the human race is capable of taking the steps necessary to solve this global crisis before it’s too late.

You can buy the book ($45) from the foundation's website (link). Or you can check it out as a free PDF book (book)

The book has very good pictures that are extremely thought provoking.
