But you can still donate to charity: water!
Hey, today is my 36th birthday (June 19!). My mom and grandma were asking me what I wanted for my birthday and I told them that I really don't want or need anything and I'd rather just have them donate to charity.
I recently met Scott (founder of Charity Water) who told me about the "Give Up Your Birthday for Charity" idea. I thought that Charity Water would be a great cause to support. (watch the video to the right and you'll think the same)
All funds go directly towards projects that create freshwater wells for people in developing nations. A water project costs an average of $5,000 and can serve a community of 250 people.
So, let's give this a shot. I'm shooting to raise $36 from 140 people for a total of $5040 (just enough for one fresh-water well). Free free to give more, feel free to give less, but I figured $36 was a good starting point.
Thanks in advance for all the support!
We raised $5,869!
Where will the money go?
100% of your donation will fund clean water projects. Once complete, we’ll prove it with photos and GPS.

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.
