Drink Water To Give Water

Read Mission Statement

As Americans, we take water for granted. But for over a Billion - yes BILLION people in the world, getting clean water is a challenge every day. Imagine a world without water or even worse, the water you get can kill you. I encourage you to take part in "Drink Water To Give Water" in order to help build a well in Africa. As bad as our economy may seem, we as Americans are still the most fortunate and affluent people on earth. We all can do more if we think about how LUCKY we all really are. I'm turning 42 this year and would appreciate a $42 donation. Please also order a glass of regular tap water from a list of restaurants (to follow) and donate $1 for the refreshing drink you don't have to pay for.

This campaign helped fund a rig in Ethiopia that can drill 80 wells a year.

September Campaign 2011

You fundraised, donated and came to a birthday party -- all to help us raise money for two new drilling rigs in Tigray, Ethiopia. Each rig will go on to drill 80 new wells, and together they'll change 80,000 lives -- every single year for the next 15 years.
