    Why would I want to lose weight? I have been below normal all my life, with no change more than five lbs is 50 years. Yes, I know why most people in some countries (especially United States) are far overweight, mostly from the most dangerous addictive drug in the world – sugar. But I never intend to become normal, nor do I believe doctors (who are sometimes also fat). If I believed doctors I would have been dead already four times.

    I’m in!!! Thank you so much for bringing this to me. I have a store in Michigan and I will be promoting this in my store and on social media. God Bless all of you, and God bless those beautiful people in the video that have clean water now. This is so doable, we WILL do this Susan!!We are all part of the Great Village on Earth it’s time to pull together and make sure every one of those people has clean water.

      Agree – wondering if they can eventually branch out to preservation and the environmental issues that are effecting clean water in the US, as well as elsewhere internationally. This will be an impending global problem in the future if not addressed.

    Just so you know, your hypothetical $3 per month is not possible. I could afford that and was excited when you mentioned it, but when I got to the site, I learned that the minimum is $10 per month, which I just cannot afford at this time. I’m posting this in case there are other people in my situation. I will give a one-time donation, but unfortunately, I can’t afford to actually join the spring :(. It would be nice if these organizations could recognize that those of us who can’t give that much still do want to help out, and I would rather give $1-3 per month than a one-time donation, but they have made it impossible for me to do it that way.

    Reply ·
    1. Genevieve

      I’m in the same situation, Raven. For the organizations, the problem usually lies in that it can cost more than $3/month to process each monthly contribution. That’s why they need to have a minimum donation amount.

        Now THAT is truly sad. If it costs more than $3.00 per month to process a donation than we are really going in the wrong direction here.

      Raven, I’m a development director and it’s true that sometimes it cost more in credit card fees to process a gift, but you could definitely mail your contribution each month. I know it’s more trouble to do that but I have many people who still send me money via snail mail. Your gift is important.

    For 25 years I’ve been seriously conserving water. It means so much to me because so many millions of people live (and die) without clean water. I’m thrilled to learn about Charity: Water, and I was so happy that the video said I could donate. I live on disability and can’t donate to some causes because the minimum requirement is too high for me. I used the link above, and quickly learned that I can’t give just $3 (as Susan’s video mentions), or $5 a month which is the most I can afford. The minimum is $10. I will have to support Charity: Water in another way, and I will.
    But I encourage all who can to donate to this life saving organization.
    Happy Solstice, Merry Christmas, and a blessed New Year to all.

    Scott says 100% goes to the program but quoting from Charity Navigator, a watchdog for people who wish to donate to charities says:

    “Program Expenses
    (Percent of the charity’s total expenses spent on the programs
    and services it delivers) 81.9%”

    Scott talks a great talk but I don’t like to see such high salaries for CEO and only 82 cents on the dollar go to the program. Granted, the numbers are better than some well known charities but still…..

            This is an awesome TedTalk- thanks so much for posting it here.
            Of course we must be good stewards and be sure money is well spent, but the REAL issue is IMPACT.
            Just like when we purchase an item, it can be short sighted to buy the least expensive item because it may be made cheaply and therefore not last long. The smartest thing to do is buy the best value so that you get the most for your money.

    2. Karen Brier

      I understand! But If you check out the charity, you find that you can specify if your donation will go to water or overhead. The “Well” donors pay for their overhead and that is managed separately and reported in minute detail.

      Reply ·
    3. Micki

      Marlene-I had the same concern when I heard him say this. I went to their website and read the auditors report of this charity and looked at their financials. The auditors report explains how the funding is managed and they do restrict funds from donations to go directly to water projects and private donors do donate to cover overhead. I think Charity Navigator just looks at the financials and runs percentages without digging into the nitty and the gritty of the full auditors report.

      But none the less, I am not sold on this charity yet and will continue to do more due diligence before giving them money. If they turn out to be the real deal, then of course they have my full support.

    4. David

      Bless your heart Marlene! Well founded skepticism is always a good thing. Charity Navigator also says that on average, charities spend about 11.3% of their proceeds on delivering program services. If you are that concerned about Scott’s integrity, then this program is not for you. Either way, we continue to love you just the same, 100%! (and that’s not just talk)

    Scott makes a huge salary. Well over $200,000 per year. The water organization I support the Executive Director makes $72,000 per year and has a higher efficiency rating than Charity Water. Charity Water has an excellent rating, but Scott isn’t in this just for the goodness of his heart at that salary . I’ll stick with the water organization I’m supporting even though its scope is smaller.

      Glenna, good for you for supporting a grass-roots effort. I totally agree about the salaries thing. Granted, $200K per year is not nearly as bad as some and I’m sure Scott is doing his best, but until you really walk the walk how can you say you are doing everything you can to help? My partner has dedicated his life and all of his resources to his mission and he takes less than $60K/year, no benefits, as head of his non-profit. Those are the charities I really like to support. Still, this guy Scott seems to be doing a great job and I don’t mind donating some for that. I just wish he could devote himself to the crisis that providing water for everyone will not solve.

        Thanks, Carol – I did listen to that and it was very interesting and made some great points. What I also found interesting is that none of that money going into the non-profit sector – none of that pie – registered a piece going to save our environment. And without our environment, without our home, we’ve got nothing. I agree that it costs money to make money. And I’d rather see big money going to the non-profit sector than the for-profit sector. I’m not sure what the solution is for our planet though. Thanks again for posting that!

      The online system doesn’t offer that option for The Spring, Joan. 🙁 So donating that way will not be part of SPT’s fundraiser, and it will take more of my time (i.e. money) each quarter to make a separate donation. When you live on the very thin edge of financial ruin, discretionary spending has to be as easy as possible, or it become too costly (therefore damaging) to the donor.

    All set to contribute but the link would not accept my card – I’m in France with a UK credit card. If Scott is to get his contributors his software needs to be more flexible – this is a worldwide thing – not just a US thing. I’ll try via his website, but it’s a shame, because my contribution won’t be counted among the BLE tribe. What he’s doing is fantastic. And I so applaud the 100% donation thing. So many large charities could learn from this.

    I don’t give money to anyone or any organization. Period. I would, however, consider giving to Charity: Water . . . but my reservation is this:
    the minute you give money somewhere you’re asked to give MORE! I’m not going to subject myself to one more entity that goes on emailing, mailing, calling to request even more money. And that’s about all I can say to entreaties for help. Greed is ubiquitous.

      Open a second email address to use for anything and anyone who might ask you for more or sell your email address. I’ve been doing this for about 6 months now… I go in and delete delete delete once every couple of weeks. I use it for credit cards, signing petitions, etc. I highly recommend it. Even if you choose not to give to Scott’s cause, I would recommend you try this method as it makes the decision a lot easier when asked to participate in things that want your email address.

Thank you for providing a vehicle for giving with 100% trust. I realize my contribution is humble, but that allows me to be consistent. And whenever else I can, I will remember the Spring and give more. Blessings on your journeys for life.

    Hi people are doing amazing things all around the world but these things won’t change pouring loads of money into helping people. Open your eyes look around animals on endangered lists people suffering and dying plants becoming extinct, trees disappearing at an alarming rate. We are trying to get to Mars to try and live there? We can’t even live here! There are adverts every day on the TV for charities to help people in poverty and animals that are endangered. It’s the planet that needs our help. We are on a slippery slope once the animals are extinct then it’s our turn to suffer each and every one of us. God supplies us with all we need he has done so for thousands of years that’s why we have gotten this far. There is a balance repair the earth and the balance will be restored. Before its too late. The problem started I the garden of Eden one greedy person taking an apple and we have gotten more greedy. To go forward we must look back and see where we went wrong.
    Humidifiers powered by solar panels can collect clean water from the air there is always humidity in the air.
    Did we come from Mars years ago? Is that why there’s a longing to go back there? Did humans destroy Mars like they are doing to the earth?
    Will fracking rocks turn rock into sand?
    Will the sand get washed away with underground water and cause more sink holes?
    will fracking fracture some rocks causing water to disappear underground?
    Then less water for all of us?
    sorry about the SA.
    there is plenty more I could tell you with figures to back up everything.
    No planet = no food,no water, no home for any of us!!!

        yes, sadly it’s true Daniel, though I’m not sure about the Mars part – interesting concept though.

        And I’m happy to support water charities.

        The sadest words I ever heard were written by man, of course. Too bad they were put in such a popular book. “Go forth and multiply”. It is a totally human concept and fatally flawed.

        Were it not for those words – and if we could only apply ourselves to the bigger problem – we wouldn’t need water charities.

    Hi Susan, Thanks for helping to raise awareness by and sharing Scot’s touching mission and charity organization with us. I wanted to support this cause and donate but find it rather unusual and unsafe to provide my bank ID and password to do so. Maybe changing the payment process by just having to give a credit card number would make it seem more comfortable to donate. Unfortunately, I feel not safe to proceed with a donation under this circumstance.

    I am not a forensic accountant, however, I do know how to read tax returns. Officer compensation in 2007 combined for Scott and his spouse was over $151000. Forward to 2016 total officer compensation and wages including 3 outside consultants was $7,123,129! (This includes other officers and wage compensation.) Upon further review, millions of dollars are being spent on digging holes instead of building well infrastructure and job training for the workers of the area. Breaking this down even further, funds are being distributed to other charities, further imploding the cost structure. In 2016 funds of $9,834,548 was sent to Ethiopia which served only 198,668 people; Uganda received $2,176,270 which served 66,617 people; and for Rwanda, $2,528,508 was spend serving 66,820 people. Even I can say with confidence that the money spent is not being spent efficiently and is being spread too thinly. Bottom line is, if the water and sanitation issues are ever going to be resolved, the local and country governments are going to have to get serious about fixing their problems and not rely on “social justice” guilt as espoused by the UN. These problems have been on the UN table for well over 40 years!

But you have created so many other things to help us and I will turn to those.

      Does your credit card have a foreign transaction block.? I know I cannot do purchases or give to charities outside the United States unless I have the block released. Check with your credit card company or bank and see if that might be the problem.

    Susan-
    I am aware of this organization as a strategic partner with World Vision, where I work. I will reach out today to get more information on them but I know our due diligence to be very thorough and that alone gives me confidence in the organization. He definitely has a good story!
    And I must share that World Vision is the largest private provider of clean water in the developing world today, and is ahead of schedule to provide clean water to everyone, everywhere we work by the year 2030!! In addition, a study completed by the University of NC Chapel Hill Water Institute demonstrated that World Vision wells last close to 20 years, instead of the average of 5. This is primarily due to the community engagement work done in the field, which ensures that the community is prepared to take care of the well themselves for the long term, and finally, because the water work is embedded in a sustainable, wholistic development model.

    I am emailing from Canada. Having been to Africa and been in communities that need water I believe that Scott’s work is important. I continue to be bothered by the neglect of our Aboriginal communities in North America who do not have clean drinking water and we do not hear about them in these advertisements. With caring.

    Thank you for bringing this amazing organization into the spotlight!
    We donated a lump sum for now and will consider joining the monthly program in the future.
    I appreciate your giving spirit and using your platform to inspire it in others. I have Watched the Freedom series videos and have your book and used BLE to lose my last stubborn 10 pounds (though now I am considering 5-10 more).
    But I am so looking forward to my sister, who has more than 100 pounds to lose, to really comitting to this program as a long term solution to her life of food addiction, Thank you for such a clear powerful program and community! Do you have to do the 14 day challenge or 30 day boot camp to join the BLE community for posting and support?
    Thanks again for shining your light.
    Namaste

    “Blessed are the oblivious for they shall never even know.”
    America is clueless to our poverty. Loaded on sugars. Real food, is costly.
    Everybody want donations.
    Do you get why so many poor are fat?

    Susan, thank you so much for bringing this issue and solution into my awareness! I am so grateful I saw this and can help with what I can. I so agree with using your platform for good, and by doing this, now so many more people will have this clean water. I love you heart!! 💕💕

    A great initiative, but it is a must to go together with other efforts; these people need clean water, indeed, but most of all they need to understand that they cannot bring children into the world without being able to raise them properly. Maybe this would be the correct start in helping these people…

    I love you so much and what this blog brings home is the deep connection that exists and underlays everything you are for and about, and that is the power and how it spreads, because we ARE one, and your deepest sense of purpose in this world connects so deeply with my deepest commitment and on and on….we each may have different specific expressions of purpose, but underneath it all we are working towards a world that is kinder, that alleviates suffering, and reconnects us to who WE are as human beings, and frees us from the helplessness of our misinformed sense of isolation, resignation, cynicism, and despair. YES to we “can” make a difference. Yes to we have what we need together to transform this world and make a difference now.

    Your BLE program is the best. However, I don’t see how this message fits with what I thought your message was. While I think this is a very worthy cause that deserves sharing, IMHO it doesn’t belong in your VLOG, which I look forward to for information on BLE. I think this dilutes what you are all about. And I am bothered by his income level, sorry, that I think should have been disclosed. I detect some self-serving message here that is very well done in terms of marketing all of us, that makes me very uncomfortable in this context.

    Dear Susan, thank you! I only now saw that video I was just overwhelmed … OMG! I have some ideas to raise money, still – not know exactly how to start … But thank you again for sharing this Scot’s video and his message. You and especially Scott moved me deeply.
