I cried just watching you do it, because I couldn’t imagine how it is for people that have to do it every day. 😭😭😭 The other day I went to Lincoln’s home in Springfield IL. They had a demonstration of how women had to wash the clothes by hand and bedsheets and all. They asked the question can you imagine having to wash your clothes by had like back then. I wanted to slap them and yell at them because I knew I started washing my own clothes by hand since I was 6 or 7 and there are people still having to do it now a days. They acted like it was something from the past something that people don’t do anymore. For some reason it was very upsetting how ignorant people are of the hardships of others. Last summer I was in Mexico City with my grandparents and there was water shortage and my grandma and I had to fetch water from a car wash on the corner. We were like I feel like the people in Africa but then we thought about our words and realized we could not compare ourselves to their hardships. That experience made me remember what I had learned in my country that I have forgotten in the comfort of my new life in the US. Thank you for this video!!!♥️

This is easier than Canoeing for a week in mostly bad weather but one day it was clean and water was smooth and went 17 miles that day. But we headed to a island in the area where blueberries grow but non was found so much luck the trip went. Oh and I missed a American holiday because I was in Canada so the weather got bad quickly.

I can’t use my tapwater it’s too dangerous. I live in Morocco and I have to brush my teeth with bottled water. It’s a lot harder than just turning onto Fossett even though it doesn’t seem it.

Two 10-liter containers would be easier to carry, balanced one each side. Glad to see this. Plus, in Mozambique, the water they gather is typically muddy and unclean. There is a video of young girls going to fetch water and also take the cows to get a drink. They lead the cows to what is a deep, very muddy hole. The cows go in to drink first, of course stirring more mud into the water. They then fill their containers and thats the water they carry back for their family to use. I know i take water for granted.

I pretty much had to do this when I was making hikeing trails cuz we had a container just like that that we carried to ower location on the trail all the way some times it was 30 Minutes some times hours it's hard but those women billed up strangth witch makes it easier yes it's hard for them and yes it takes time but those women look at the positive witch is water to drink water to cook and even water to give there kids baths. I agree they should in pore areas like that help them find a better way to transport water I only had to walk water to my trail makeing location for 2 months but I could never amagen doing this every day many times a day.

At the start of this video I really think that this is not something I could help and although I'm appreciate the water I have I just thought that I am a single person and at a young age there no way i could change the world but at the end this video is a lesson for me and it hit me so hard that the simple things to keep me alive is a treasure to other peoples and how could I can leave my room and walk less than a minute to get water when some body else have to take their sweat ,tears, energy ,strength to keep their family alive,although the water tasted the same but my appreciation for it change so much every molecules that touches my tongue make me realize how much hard work other people have to do to get that.Thank you for your video this 11 minute video really change my life.I really want to help

Awesome video, great way to raise awareness! But the math she uses in the beginning bothers me. Average household using 423 gallons per day? Uhhhh no. The average person uses 80-100 gallons per day, and the average household in America per 2010 Census is 2.58. So even on the high end, the average household uses 258 gallons per day. But if we use 90, the middle of the average range, it comes out to 232 gallons. That's WAY OFF her number. In order for her number to be accurate, the average person would need to use 164 gallons per day. She pretty much doubled the real number.

Wow Michelle! You did an awesome job carrying those 45 lbs of water or so for 2 miles. I'm so glad you didn't drop any of that. I'm totally out of shape and I don't think I would be able to do this. I would love to try one day though. Nice realization though that while you were doing that, you said other women in those countries were doing exactly the same thing right then and there not complaining. They are definitely really strong, mentally and physically, to do that 2-3 times per day. I love your challenge videos. They're very inspirational and eye opening.

I have a pet peeve, when water is running and not being used. If a sink is running, and not being used for even five seconds, I have to turn it off. I had no idea it was this serious, I want to try carrying maybe 10 ponds of water a couple of miles. I am only 12, so it would literally be impossible for me to carry more than about 15 pounds for a long period of time.

Wow, just wow! What I like about you, Michelle, is that you always do your best to get as authentic of an experience as possible in whatever challenge you do. It really helps us put ourselves in the shoes of the people whose lives you're recreating. And you're so right, we always hear numbers about how little water some people have, how far they have to go to get it, what tools or lack thereof they have, etc. We literally have all the information. And yet nothing painted as authentic of a picture of just how strugglesome this job is than a privileged American trying it out (I mean that in the nicest way). I appreciate you using your power and privilege to give to those who have less of it and I hope we can see more content like this.

It is ridiculous that I can go turn on a faucet and get as much water I need. I’m slowly transitioning to minimalism and slows how much water I use and waste. I don’t take water hiking, I use a life straw. Thanks for opening my eyes even more!
