    2020 Water News in Central Texas


    Thank you to our donors (our "families") for your continued support during

    our " COVID-19 downtime".

    We hope all of our families have fared as well as can be expected during these challenging times ~ and that you and yours are healthy and looking forward to a return to normal, or at least a "new normal" that brings us back together, stronger than ever.


    ~~Wishing you and your family a safe and blessed time this holiday season to nurture all the relationships that sustain us in difficult times. ~~



    The Simsboro Aquifer Water Defense Fund (SAWDF) has announced the kickoff of its #GivingTuesday 2020 campaign on December 1, with the possibility of matching funds from Facebook and a central Texas environmental fund.

    #GivingTuesday is a global day of generosity that simply encourages people to do good ---whether it’s helping a neighbor, advocating for an issue, sharing a skill, or giving to causes.

    Go to our Facebook page here to donate by December 1, for important information on #Giving Tuesday, and to watch videos on our efforts to protect the Carrizo-Wilcox Aquifer, the source of water for Milam, Burleson, Lee and Bastrop counties.


    Please share the Facebook page with your friends and families and donate on Facebook, if possible, to get the Facebook match plus another matching donation from a central Texas environmental fund.


    There are multiple ways to donate throughout the month of December.

    Also eligible for matching donations from that same environmental fund:

    #ILiveHereIGiveHere, through Amplify Austin.


    Go HERE, press the DONATE button and search for

    "Simsboro Aquifer Water Defense Fund".


    We believe Facebook and Amplify Austin donations, plus any donations marked "Giving Tuesday" through this website or by check through December 31 are all eligible for an additional match from a central Texas environmental fund.


    Go HERE to DONATE throughout December (this website's DONATE page) if you or your friends and family don't Facebook or use Amplify Austin!
