Read Mission Statement

There are 800 million people in the world living without access to clean water. Let's change that!

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 is just an arm's length away.

But, in many developing countries, women and children walk for hours, up and down mountains, just to collect water that can make them really sick.

Help us play a small part in solving the water crisis -- donate to our campaign.

70% of the Expolosion ticket sales and individual donations will directly fund water projects in Ethiopia. And when those projects are finished, charity: water will send us proof in pictures and GPS coordinates, so we can see the actual people and communities we impacted.

    We in the developed countries take clean water for granted. Every man, woman, and child has the right to safe drinking water.
