Austin family on mission to help children living without clean water

An Austin family is on a mission to raise thousands of dollars for children living without clean water. At the forefront of the cause is the family's seven-year-old Sophie McMinn.

About 844 million people don't have access to clean water and right now, statistics show, nearly a thousand children under the age of five die every day from diarrhea caused by dirty water and improper hygiene. 

Those shocking numbers is why Sophie is making it her mission to make a change.
