One of the driving forces behind my success has always been philanthropy. It's extremely important for me to give to people in need whenever and however I can.

That's why I'm asking you to make a donation - ANY donation - to Charity:Water in honor of my 50th birthday. My goal is to raise $5000.

Can you help?

I was greatly moved after hearing Scott Harrison speak in Portland last year and vowed to "Give Up My Birthday" to help his amazing water projects in Africa and beyond.

What moved me most was seeing the girls taken out of school because they had to spend all day hauling water instead of learning. My heart broke.

And then there were those who had horrible physical ailments deformities just because they didn't have clean water.

Charity:Water is a different kind of charity. 100% of your gift goes directly to fund projects - not one dime to administration! And you can track your gift online to see where it goes.

Learn About the Water Crisis

Diseases from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Your donation will help change that.
