I am turning five years old and am from Ethiopia. My parents just adopted me and I've been in the United States since April. When I lived in Ethiopia the only water we had came from a small water hole that was very dirty. My little brother died from diarrhea when he was one year old because the water made him so sick. I was very sad and very scared to drink the water. When I got to America the doctor said my stomach had lots of parasites in it from the water I drank in Ethiopia. Thankfully, here in America there is always clean water and I am healthy now. I don't have to worry anymore.

But there are still lots of people who have to worry about the water they drink. So, I want to raise enough money to build a well for a village like mine in Africa. Will you help?
