Read Mission Statement

I started thinking about charity: water back in August. I was following Lance Armstrong (@lancearmstrong) on Twitter during the 2009 Tour de France. I had never used Twitter before this time, but it is a great way to feel like you have a more personal relationship with people you will most likely never meet.

Thru Lance's Tweets I came across Chris Sacca (@sacca) who is a huge Twitter dude. See Chris's web page (http://www.whatisleft.org/) for more info. He is a very interesting person. Chris is biking across the USA and is trying to raise awareness about both charity: water and the Lance Armstrong Foundation along the way.

As I read Chris's blog about his pending ride and charity: water it really seemed to strike a chord with me. There are 1,000's of great charities out there but this one is different. Every time charity: water builds a well it helps a whole village for up to 20 years. This changes 100's of people's quality of life for a whole generation.

I come from a huge family. I have made many good friends. And, I have met lots of great people at all the companies I have worked.

I want to organize a campaign to bring all those people together in an effort to make a difference in the world. A difference that will change 100's of lives for a generation.

My goal is simply to nudge all of you a little in the hope that you will be as touched as I am and just maybe make a contribution.

Thank you,

Todd L. Fipps

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.

    This is a night out for me, but so much more for a family without clean water. I don't know you, but you, sacca, charity:water have inspired me to help make the world better. Thanks. -@eddydugan
