Clean water means health, income and education - especially for women and kids. Make a difference in someone's life

This year I'm turning 32, so I'm really hoping I can get help to raise $320 for charity: water. Clean water isn't a given for everyone around the world. Hundreds of millions of people don't have clean water. They have to walk hours to collect dirty water, and the walk itself may be dangerous. Even when they get the water back to their family, it might be doing little more than killing them slowly. Women and young girls are often the ones sent to get the water, which means if clean water can be brought to a community it also increases the gender equality in that village. It frees up time for young girls to pursue an education or earn extra income. Water Committees are often the first chance for women to step into elected leadership roles.

100% of money donated to charity: water goes straight to water project costs (installing wells and sanitation stations). Which means every penny you donate, whether you can give a small amount or large, truly counts.

You can help change someone's future even if all you can give is $1. Together, we can raise money toward my goal-- and then my campaign will join with other campaigns until there's enough money to fund a project. Charity: water will keep me up to date as time passes about the status of the project, and in turn I'll relay that information to all my social media so you can keep up to date, too.

I donated my 30th birthday and together we raised $210, which went in with other campaigns to help create a piped water system - tap stand in Nepal. Specifically, the Daduwa community, where 144 people gained access to clean water. Read all about it and see pictures and the Google map here: http://bit.ly/1D08FpP

What you do matters. It may feel like one voice or one donation or one moment is meaningless in the greater scheme of the world, but it isn't. We can all come together to make an impact, and make a difference.

If all you have is $1 to spare, if you have no money and want to share this campaign with others to help us reach our goal of $320, if you want to donate your own birthday and do your own campaign... it isn't ignored or forgotten. It matters to me, but even more importantly it will matter to the people whose lives will change the moment they no longer have to risk their lives or health for something the rest of the world takes for granted. Something that every human being needs to live, and something that not all humans can easily access. Something we can all work together to provide for our brothers and sisters around the world.

Thank you for reading this far. Thank you if you share this campaign or start your own campaign. And ESPECIALLY, thank you thank you THANK YOU if you are able to donate any amount at all.
