June, 2012 Newsletter
Greetings from the Save the Water™ staff,
In the news postings on the STW™ web site you will find articles about: fracking, viruses in water, arsenic contamination, pipeline oil spill in Canada, and the global water crisis. These are very interesting articles that made the water news last month.
In the upcoming month we want to bring your attention to articles about: chemical contamination in our drinking water and the health affects they cause. We have begun our weekly Save the Water™ 101 series which covers in depth material on specific chemical contaminants and we will continue with illustrated articles on fracking and fluoride, two of the most talked about issues today.
STW™ is moving at a fast pace, we need you to join us with your generosity so that we may continue our work. Your donation of any amount will add up and go a long way towards our final goal of a local Hollywood, Florida office and laboratory. Explanation of how funds will be used from the fundraising campaign can be found on the homepage.
We have had a record number of visitors to our website and followers and alliances are growing daily. At the bottom of each page there is a map. clicking on the map, will give you details about the number of visitors in a time period and where they are coming from.
The STW™ Store has over one hundred merchants to choose from, and when you make a purchase using the links on the STW™ Store we make a small commission that goes directly to funding the lab and educational program.
We encourage you to purchase a water filter for your home to insure that the water your family is drinking and cooking with is of the best quality possible. We offer Aquasana filters on the STW™ Store which we have evaluated and consider the best value and quality.
Again, we need your donations, so please go to the donate button and use your credit/debit card or PayPal. Gift-in-kind donations are accepted. Please contact us for instructions.

There are many problems with contamination of our drinking water and that’s the reason for Save the Water™. The mission of Save the Water™ is to conduct water research to identify toxic chemicals harmful to humans, animals and the environment. Save the Water™ is committed to finding methods to eliminate the toxins and improve the quality of drinking water.
Save the Water™ is also committed to the education of present and future generations to insure the protection and conservation of water.

|Welcome to the first edition of the Save the Water™ Newsletter. In this issue we bring you a concise snapshot of the most interesting news posted in the previous month as well as interesting developments and progress of this nonprofit organization.
The first great news to report is the completion of our newly revamped web site presently containing over fifty pages of informative water news that will continue to expand daily. It has been completely re-designed and optimized to become one of the most comprehensive and informative web sites on the net about water and water contamination issues.
We have added new photos, media, and a brand new educational department that grows daily encompassing views of some of the world’s most prominent leaders in the scientific community and their findings. These new additions will help students understand our present water crisis and perform research on water, quickly from one source. We have also added pages to our blog, current sponsors, past contributors, and a link exchange.We invite you to take a look at “Who We Are”and “What We Do” to get an an overview of the organization. We have also divided the news into six categories so that you can easily find the subject of your interest.
In the national news, fracking for natural gas is contaminating water wells in northern PA. We need the energy from natural gas, but what good is it if we poison the very users of the energy. The old saying, “the lights are on but nobody is home” may become a fact. Fracking companies must find a way to remove the gas without water contamination. Read articles about fracking in the news section of the STW™ web page.
Anthony Kozuh has joined our staff as Fund Raising Director and Webmaster. He brings a wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm to the group and is commended for the expedited creation of the new web site. Welcome Anthony, we pray for you and the great projects you will accomplish at Save the Water™.

This month we invite you to take a look at our projects and help us with donations and sponsors. The progress and success of a nonprofit has a lot to do with “who you know” and we look forward for our members to introduce STW™ to people of influence who can help obtain the funds for the humanitarian projects and the Save the Water™ laboratory.
