Aidan's Super Awesome 8th Birthday Donations

Read Mission Statement

Water is more important than toys I will get on my birthday. There are kids who do not even get to turn 5 years old because they have dirty water. This makes me sad.

So, I don't want presents this year or a big party.

Instead, I am asking everyone to give $8 because I am turning 8 years old. Please help my birthday wish come true and help an entire community get clean water.

Goal #1: Raise $800 by 2/2/11
Goal #2: Raise $5,000 by 4/5/11

This campaign brought clean water to TDC Primary School, Sierra Leone.

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.
