Olivia's 10th Birthday

Read Mission Statement

This year I want to celebrate my birthday in a different way. I have everything I need and more. I don't want presents this year. I want to help people affected by the water crisis, and this CAN happen, with your help! I'm asking you to donate my age in dollars - which will be 10 - to help fund clean water projects in developing countries. You can give more, you can give less...every penny counts.

Did you know that women and children around the world walk hours every day to collect water for their families? But the water they collect can make them really sick! Terrible right? Well, we can actually do something about it. 100% of the money we raise will directly fund water projects that help provide clean water to communities. The best part is, when those projects are complete, charity: water will send us photos and GPS coordinates so we can see the impact we made. I can't think of a better birthday gift!

Please donate to my campaign, and/or consider setting up your own birthday campain!

Thank you!
Olivia :)

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.
