kg's charity: water well campaign

Read Mission Statement

Yeah yeah... it's not my 20th birthday but just $20 can give one person access to clean water.

An average water project costs $5,000 and can serve 250 people with clean, safe water so I'm trying to hit 5K to build a well.

Because of charity: water's unique model, 100% of all donations go directly to water projects and each donation is "proved" and tracked to the village it helped when projects are complete.

A billion people in the world are living without clean water and millions contract deadly diseases from contaminated water. 45,000 people will die this week alone. The lucky ones won't, but still walk hours each day to get dirty water to give to their families.

A year from now I hope to be sending you an update from somewhere in the developing world with photos of our well and stories of how something we take for granted, like clean water, can be so life-altering for the one billion people living without it.

Please help me make this birthday wish come true!

Thank you.

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.
