On Saturday, I'm turning the big four zero.

On honor of the year I was born, I'm raising $1972 for people in need of water in developing nations.

Every dollar you contribute will help fund a freshwater project. Water is a commodity we take for granted. We have some of the cleanest water in the nation, right here in Portland, OR. With your help, we can make it happen.

I've already kicked off with the first $40, now it's your turn. Let's do this!

This campaign brought clean water to:
Koflankro, Côte d'Ivoire

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.
