Easier said than done for Dennis. Officially retired from a career as a college professor, Dennis works more than full-time providing educational services for Friendly Water for the World – an Olympia-based international non-profit organization that helps communities around the world find ways to provide for their own clean drinking water needs.
So while he admits that he’d probably be more effective if he found time for a nap every day, time would be hard to come by. “I’d feel guilty,” admits Dennis, “There is still so much I need to get done, so many people who need clean water.”
From this insight, Nap for Life© was born.
Asked about this new Nap for Life© career opportunity, Dennis stifled a yawn and smiled, and replied, “It’s going to be hard work, but somebody’s gotta do it.”
OK, let’s review. For a small donation,
1. a family gets a clean water filter to protect them from all kinds of nasty diseases
2. a wonderful, hard-working, philanthropic man gets a well-deserved nap
3. you get the satisfaction of having helped make both of these things happen
It’s a win-win-win! Wish I’d thought of that. But instead, I just contributed.
