Wanted to see if I could bring together everyone I know to make a small but significant difference in a world of need. Real need.

A billion people in the world are living without clean water - but how much are they really living? Millions contract deadly diseases from contaminated water. 45,000 people will die this week alone. The lucky ones won't, but still walk hours each day to get dirty water to give to their families.

I'm turning 24 years old, and instead of asking for gifts, I'm asking for $24 or more from everyone I know. It's not going to me, though. All of it is going to build freshwater wells for people in developing nations. If you can't do $24, even $1 would help someone.

My friends, my family, thank you for being a part of this. For every $10 donated, I will donate $1 (no joke). Let's do this! =]

This campaign brought clean water to:
Lyford Uria, Malawi

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.
