Happy World Water Day 3-22-14

The book ‘A Long Walk to Water’ authored by Linda Sue Park is a highly recommended read about Salva’s life and journey from Lost Boy of Sudan to International and Regional HERO from his dedication to bring water from the earth to his people.
I actually wrote an ebook titled Drop by Drop We Fill the Pot, an Ebook by G.E. Cooper in dedication to the life work of Salva Dut and his drilling teams. I recently found out Stillwater Junior High School H2O For Life – from Stillwater, Minnesota host annual fundraisers for the cause. They raised over $50,000 to help drill wells!!
Salva’s story has impacted my life since first learning about his life. My friend, Danielle Betts first told me about WFSS and Salva’s story. It has changed me from an observer into a visionary with goals to achieve. One of my goals now is to travel to South Sudan to assist in drilling a water well!  Great work! Happy Drilling!!

I wrote an ebook dedicated to Water for South Sudan, Inc. in hopes of raising money to help Salva Dut’s teams drill for water. I have given over 100 FREE downloads from Smashwords, since publishing it. I am set to donate my book proceeds, but since I have not had any hard sales, I am pulling the ebook for editing.

Thanks everyone who downloaded my first ebook. It makes me feel special!! I will leave it up for FREE until March 7th.

My friend, Danielle Betts, told me about Salva’s story and the WFSS non profit. I was grateful she shared his story with me. I was touched deeply by Salva’s story of living the life of a “Lost Boy” of Sudan to becoming a local and international hero.

I dedicated my 1st ebook to Salva Dut. It is a goal for me to one day visit South Sudan and assist a team in drilling for water. It would be a beautiful goal realized. My ebook is titled Drop by Drop We Fill the Pot, an Ebook by G.E. Cooper

I highly recommend reading ‘A Long Walk to Water’ by Linda Sue Park. Her book is excellent and is highly acclaimed for young readers. It is the story of Salva’s life while he was a boy struggling to stay alive to becoming a leader with a true smile.
Happy reading!
and
Happy Drilling!
