I'm out of the office right now. I'm actually so far out of the office I'm in Ethiopia. Not only do the villages I'm visiting lack the internet, they also don't have clean drinking water.

That sucks. Over one billion people in the world don't have access to clean water. It saddens me to even think about it. Imagine seeing your children drink water filled parasites, or spending six hours a day lugging water from a muddy, animal poo infested watering hole to home.

Luckily I'm in Ethiopia learning not just about the problems, but also the solutions.

And that's where you come in. While I'm gone, I'd love to raise $5,000 from those who've emailed me about work. That's enough to drill a well for one village of about 250 people.

Oh. And I'll match whatever people donate. So if everyone teams up with me to hit my goal of $5,000, that's two wells. Two villages.

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