Let Water Solutions Flow

THE WETTER THE BETTER! How can this site, inspired by a little character named Penelope Puddle who simply thrives on water, not be excited about a new venture by Cirque du Soleil founder, Guy Laliberté?

Working to save the planet one drop at a time, it is obvious Laliberté never lost his childlike wonder or extreme creative thinking. He recently launched One Drop Foundation that deals with clean water and poverty issues. AND he did it from space!

The Foundation is poised to break the dam that sustains world water woes. The goal is to raise funds and let knowledge and hands-on solutions flow to all parched corners of the globe.

Canada is one of the highest water users per capita in the world. Due largely to the luck of geography, we take long showers, clean drinking water and frequent hand washing for granted. It is perhaps fitting then that a high-profile and popular Canadian "clown" is determined to quench the thirst of families populating less fortunate parts of the globe.

  1. Well, yes, the One Drop Foundation is a good idea, but do you know how much money he spent for his space flight? Coulda done a lotta good if spent more wisely to quench the thirst of the less fortunate, maybe.

  2. Yes … this has been the criticism. I think he paid 35 million for the trip. But it takes more than money to change the world. While money often goes down the drain because it is misspent, creative thinking and innovation stirs hearts and minds to want to implement change in a lasting way.

    Also, Guy ((once a poor street performer) earned his money creatively. Perhaps he is entitled to spend and give back in his own unique way. In this case, it was to have a thrilling ride, advance science, (also in need of money), and motivate people to work towards a better future.

  3. In this case, money didn't go down the drain, it went up into thin air!
