Have you ever been blessed enough to go to India. I have. The country is teaming with two things that are in stark contrast--unbelievable beauty and heart-breaking poverty. I want to tip the scales toward beauty. that's why I'm sharingthe news of Aveda's Earth Month campaign.

Now in its 12th year, Aveda created Earth Month to raise awareness and funds for critically important environmental issues around the world. In developing nations, more than 4,000 children die each day from preventable conditions like diarrhea, due to unsafe drinking water. Here in the US we use 40 gallons of water to take just one, leisurely bath. Yet someone living in a developing nation may have access to less than eight gallons of water each day for all of their daily needs .
