Blog Action Day 2010: Raising Awareness about Water

October 15th is Blog Action Day, on this day thousands of bloggers from over 130 countries come together around a common theme. This year the issue is clean water, a resource essential for life, but dangerously scarce.

Blog Action Day is an annual event that unites the world's bloggers around a common theme. Last year, more than 13,000 bloggers participated from 152 countries. The aim is to raise awareness and trigger a global discussion about an important issue that impacts people around the world.

Blog Action Day 2010 is shaping up to be the biggest online day of action around water the world has ever seen.

This years subject matter is part of an effort to save some of the staggering number of people, including a disproportionate number of children who die each day from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation facilities.

Together with US Fund for UNICEF, Blog Action Day is helping to build a movement of people across the world calling on UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to accelerate the UN's work to supply clean, safe drinking water to the world's poorest populations.
