In 1993, the United Nations General Assembly declared March 22nd as World Water Day. Water is one of the most common substances, as well as one of the most vital on Earth, and without it we’d cease to exist. Water is an incredibly valuable resource, yet it is often tossed to the side in global concerns. About 71 % of the Earth’s surface is covered in water, oceans holding about 96% of the Earth’s total water. While it pours freely from the great falls and flows endlessly through rivers and lakes-it’s a finite source. That’s where World Water Day comes in, whether you appreciate a good day at the beach or watering your plants in the garden- water is everywhere and can’t be ignored.
Here at AmeriBag we’re always looking for ways to improve our personal wellbeing as well as our loved ones and even strangers! So this year for World Water Day, we’ve chosen an amazing organization called A Walk on Water. For every blue bag purchased during the week of March 20th- 26th, 10% will be donated to helping this charity host more events for kids and their families. AWOW provides surf therapy to individuals with special needs. They do this by hosting surf therapy events that celebrate and honor courageous kids, adults, and their families. For one beautiful day at the beach, there are no labels- just fun. The goal of surf therapy is for the athlete to feel the thrill and confidence that only “A Walk on Water” can provide. Their families are fully supported and cared for as they share a much deserved day of fun and relaxation.
A visit to the beach always leaves us feeling alive and cleansed, in every aspect, physically, emotionally and spiritually. The combination of the sunshine, salt water and soft sand between our toes is an almost instant stress reliever, the most natural medication on the market. Many famous writers, poets, and musicians have used water as a metaphor for revival and cleansing their souls. While some use recordings of the crashing waves to induce deep states of relaxation. There are so many ways to appreciate water, for it provides us with a bounty of gifts.
