The Legacy of BLE Giving

This is a Vlog that I’ve been waiting to shoot for a long time, and it relates to the questions that I get asked the most when I talk to my friends in the BLE community. They want to know the outcomes of various fundraisers that we’ve held over the years, and I’m so happy to finally share the results. Watch to hear all about them.

    I have an understanding of this need from having gone to Honduras on a medical mission 3 years ago. In the capital city of Tegucigalpa there is no sanitary system or water system. Women walk 5 miles one way to get dirty water to cook with. This is why so many are ill with parasites. They are all very poor but many are overweight and have high blood pressure and Diabetes because they know the water is unclean so they drink sugary drinks instead. I am incredibly proud of the fact that BLE has partnered with this effort. I personally , am already giving to another charity for this type of effort.
    Perhaps to increase the giving maybe a small portion of any first time all access membership could also be donated? 1 % or 2 %? Then , everyone, even those without extra money would be giving to this cause in BLE?

    My comment is going to be a little different, but I wanted to join the conversation. I came upon Scott Harrison’s video early on. And like Susan, I was totally captivated by it. I suffer from chronic Lyme disease and among my requirements are 100% filtered water (bottled water isn’t sufficient). Immediately after view the video I thought to myself that if anyone should contribute to Charity Water, I’m the one because I know how vital pure, safe water is for my life. I started giving at that point. It’s the organization that I support most out of all my annual contributions. So, although I don’t give through BLE, it warms my heart to learn that BLE is the second largest contributor to Charity Water. It’s nice to know that I’m in such good company. By the way, I’m not a member of BLE, but I keep up with the weekly VLOG. The reason I haven’t joined BLE is again because of my chronic Lyme. I am forced to eat such a limited diet that I no longer have a weight problem. But I did for many years. I just wish BLE had been around at that time. Believe me, BLE is a much better way to lose weight and maintain a right-sized body than chronic Lyme as it has affected me. 🙂

    I am brought to tears! I love your heart Susan. I have found my “peeps” and I am honored to be among you. Thank you for introducing me to this amazing charity and helping me learn to eat “bright.”

    Joseph, my comment was a clarification to a previous post about charity:water which apparently was screened out by the moderator. So whatever you thought it meant, it didn’t mean that. If I could delete it, I would, because by itself it makes no sense.

      Hi Pam! We apologize but it looks like your other comment was caught up by one of our automated filters–it could have been because of multiple links within the comment. It was not deleted intentionally! 🧡
