I'll just repeat here what I posted back on u-lo-g.com:
While hospitalized in Ft. Worth, Liam recognized that he had many things to be thankful for. His first idea was to send bananas for the kids who needed food. His dad cautioned that might pose some transport problems. In looking for a way to help he learned that many kids don't even have clean water. At his request, friends donated to The Water Project and water wells have already been dug to provide water for kids (and adults) in Western Kenya. To continue this effort Liam opened a new project called Liam's Friends and the total is now 4 wells (5/17/2012).
