Our Living Water community has always done incredible work around the globe, but lately, their passion for the thirsty is going to new levels! In case you missed it, our friends, Paper for Water sat down with The Kelly Clarkson show yesterday! They shared how they've raised $3.5 million by selling their origami paper creations for clean water projects through Living Water International. Surprise guests, Living Water's President and CEO, Mike Mantel, and Sierra Leone Country Director, Rosemarie Blake, even managed to stop by to show their appreciation. Watch their entire segment from The Kelly Clarkson Show hereFrom origami paper folding to recycling for water, our partners at Bear Creek Church in Lodi, California, are in the spotlight this week for their inspiring work.
