Rachel helped fund the Yellow Thunder Drilling Rig.
This campaign raised $49,740.
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.
I am overwhelmed with gratitude and amazed by the outcome of Rachel's campaign for clean drinking water. I could never have imagined she would raise over 1 million dollars, yet it has become so much more. Throughout each day I look forward to reading your comments and hearing how Rachel's story has touched people all over the world. In this painful time, it has given me inspiration and comfort. Knowing that Rachel's decision to give up her 9th birthday will now help save thousands of people brings me to tears. I cannot thank you enough for your kind words, stories, individual fund raising efforts and most of all your outpouring of love. I am so proud to be a part of this ongoing campaign. I'm excited to be a part of its future and look forward to continuing on this path Rachel has laid before us. Thank you.
