Are you a gardener? My friend Tom Ryan has invented the WiserWand that saves water (and therefore saves money) in the garden. Now he needs to get it manufactured. He has a Kickstarter campaign to raise the money for manufacturing. You can help by purchasing a WiserWand for as little as $25. 25% of all profits are donated to clean water and sanitation world-wide.
Will you help? See details at http://kck.st/2oxxOrO.
