Have you ever said, "I'm dying of thirst?" If so, I bet you didn't really mean it.If you're like us, you don't spend too much time thinking about water - it's everywhere we go. When we're thirsty, we flip a handle or push a button. When we're dirty, we twist a shower knob. When our garden needs watering, when our pasta needs to be boiled, when we use the bathroom - water's just there for the taking. But for a billion people on the planet, it's not. Millions of women and children have to walk hours each day to get water from muddy ponds and rivers. And much of that water is infested with parasites and leeches.When we learned that only $20 can give someone clean, safe water for two decades, we decided to start a campaign to help. Our goal is to raise $5000 to build clean water projects in developing nations. And the cool thing about charity: water is that they spend 100% of the money we raise directly on the water projects. Even better, when projects are complete, every dollar is tied to village and all the wells are posted on Google Maps. We've never actually been dying of thirst. And if you're like us, you'd like to see a world where no one does. Together, we can make a dent in the global water crisis. We hope you'll consider helping.

This campaign brought clean water to Bet Hannis Community, Ethiopia and 1 other project.

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.
