Here’s an easy, mindful way to help others: http://tap.unicefusa.org. This is a mobile app that raises money to provide clean drinking water to those in need. For every 15 minutes that you don’t touch your cell phone, UNICEF’s project sponsors donate 1 gallon of water!
Think that you’re offering the water first to countless Buddhas and then to all sentient beings in every corner of the universe. May all beings drink the pure nectar of Dharma.
