Currently, many people in India are plagued by dirty water that causes ailments such as diarrhea, cholera, typhoid and e-coli. Thousands of people die each year from these preventable diseases, and something can, and should be done about it. Vestergaard Frandsen, a Swedish company, has created something called the LifeStraw. About 4 dollars each, these straws can be easily used to filter dirty elements from most water sources. The goal of this fundraiser is to raise money for villages in India.
