Let's Give A Damn
About This Show
Let's Give A Damn is a podcast where we tell the stories of who saw a need and gave a damn about it. You will have heard of some of our guests. Others will be complete strangers to you. Our goal is that as you hear these stories and begin giving a damn, that we will become a global family of people who refuse to settle for the status quo. Hosted by Nick Laparra.

World Vision — Clean Water Should Not Be A Luxury
2 days ago
A few weeks ago, I spent a week in Honduras with my friends at World Vision. We met several incredible groups of people but I was especially impacted by the community that now has clean water after 7 years of working hard to get clean water to their community. You heard that right—SEVEN YEARS. In this podcast episode, you’ll get to listen in on an audio clip between two World Vision team members that I captured while in Honduras, I chat with my friend Matthew Paul Turner (who went on the trip with me) in a Target parking lot, and I chat with Jo Saxton (who hosts a yearly #6KForWater in Minneapolis) after her talk at the most recent Q Conference. PLEASE join me in Nashville (or whoever you live!) on May 19 for World Vision’s #6KForWater. 6 kilometers is the average distance that people in the developing world walk for water—water that is often contaminated with life-threatening diseases. On Saturday, May 19th, thousands of participants from around the globe will walk or run 6k to bring life-changing clean water to communities in need. Each participant's registration fee provides life-changing clean water for one person, so when you participate in the Global 6K for Water you take that 6K distance away from people in need. If you’d like to join me, get more information and sign up here! I’d love to see you there. If you can’t make it (we’ll miss you!), you can still give toward our goal of raising $1500 to provide clean water to 30 children!Follow Let’s Give A Damn on Facebook, Instagram, & Twitter to keep up with all that is going on.

Seriously Insightful and Intriguingly Interesting
I love the content that is covered and the common theme of looking outward to the world and seeing our impact on it. Nick does an incredible job of relationally drawing out peoples experiences both perfessionally and personally. I genially love this podcast!
