PlanetWaterSolutions.com helped fund the Yellow Thunder Drilling Rig.
This campaign raised $841.
That money is hard at work in the field.
100% of the money raised by this campaign is being used to bring clean water to those in need. In 18 months we’ll be able to show you exactly where the money went and who it helped.
While many people debate about what type of bottled water to drink, we have a mission to reduce the demand for bottled water and it's negative impact on our environment and at the same time bring clean drinking water to those that need it the most.
Have you ever said, "I'm dying of thirst?"
If so, I bet you didn't really mean it.
If you're like me, you don't spend too much time thinking about water -- it's everywhere we go. When we're thirsty, we flip a handle or push a button. When we're dirty, we twist a shower knob. When our garden needs watering, when our pasta needs to be boiled, when we use the bathroom -- water is just there for the taking.
But for almost a billion people on the planet, it's not. Millions of women and children have to walk hours each day to get water from muddy ponds and rivers. And much of that water is infested with bacteria, parasites or leeches.
When I learned that only $20 can give someone access to clean, safe water, I decided to start a campaign to help. My goal is to raise $5000.00 charity: water will use 100% of the money to directly fund the water projects in the field. Even better, when the projects are complete, they'll show me just where our money went. That's right -- we'll be able to see the GPS coordinates, photos and other details about the community we've impacted!
I've never actually been dying of thirst. I'm sure we'd all like to see a world where no one does.
Together, we can make a dent in the global water crisis. I hope you'll consider helping by simply helping yourself:
Save money by using a bottleless cooler, help the environment and finally knowing that your purchase will contribute to bringing clean water to those that need it most.
This campaign help fund a drilling rig!
This campaign helped fund a rig in Ethiopia that can drill 80 wells a year.
Thousands joined the September Campaign to fund a drilling rig fleet in Ethiopia. On February 27, 2012, Yellow Thunder broke ground drilling its first well. Watch the video to see what happened.
