Brian's 30th Birthday

Read Mission Statement

On September 23, I'm turning 30. And this year, I don't want presents or drinks. I want clean water.

Women and children in Rwanda walk for hours every day, up and down mountains, just to collect water from rivers. And the worst part? The water they collect can make them really sick.

Terrible right? Well, we can actually do something about it. Just $65 can give someone in Rwanda clean water.

So I'm asking everyone for my age in donations. Give $3 or $30 and help me give life's most basic need.

The best part is that 100% of the money we raise will directly fund water projects in the Rwanda, and 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. Join me!

This campaign brought clean water to Nyakabanga Community, Rwanda.

September Campaign 2012: Rwanda

The people of Rwanda are rewriting their story, and it starts with clean water for everyone. 100% of donations funded large-scale spring protection systems for communities here. Once complete we'll prove it using photos and GPS coordinates.
