Beans & Rice Crew

Read Mission Statement

Did you know that over 4,500 children die every day from unclean drinking water? Did you know that kids the same age as us walk hours every day for water?

We hope that this well will help more children live and be able to go to school and play.

We started raising money for our first well by eating rice and beans for dinner for 25 days straight. All of our families gave the money that we saved on food during that time to the well. This is our second well and we're going to find new things to give up to raise money for this well. It could be eating out, cable, buying new clothes, bottled water, or using your air conditioning. Is there anything that you can give up for awhile to help others have clean water and live?

Please help us.

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.
