PLEASE READ! :)
Dear Reader, and Friend,
It's my 21st birthday August 5th!
However, instead of buying me a drink, help me to give people the access to clean water.
I'm asking for $21 (more or less) from anyone willing to donate. The money isn't going to me though. It's going to build freshwater projects for people in developing countries.
Almost a billion people in the world are living without clean water, something some of us take for granted. Millions contract deadly diseases from contaminated water. 30,000 people will die this week alone. Some even have to walk hours each day to get dirty water for their families.
My birthday wish is to give clean and safe drinking water to some of the billion people living without it. I want to make my birthday matter.
Plus: 100% of all donations go directly toward water projects. And about 18 months after this campaign ends, charity: water will show us where and how every dollar we raised ended up helping in the field. We'll see GPS coordinates, photos and more details about the communities we've impacted.
Please join me in raising at least $420 to help 21 people have access to clean water for my 21st birthday.
And for those who would love to see me drink my first alcoholic beverage, I'm only letting that happen if I reach $420 before this birthday campaign is up. :P
We raised $619!
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.
