I don't really make a big deal about my birthdays but if I can at least help someone with it, then that's awesome.
So this year, I'm giving my birthday up.
I'm turning 20 years old and hoping to see people donate at least $20. I think charity: water is doing an amazing job. All of it is going to build freshwater projects for people in developing countries.
Almost a billion people in the world are living without clean water -- but how much are they really living? Millions contract deadly diseases from contaminated water. 30,000 people will die this week alone. The lucky ones won't, but still have to walk hours each day to get dirty water for their families.
I would like to make my birthday matter this year.
The best part: 100% of all donations go directly toward water projects. And about 18 months after this campaign ends, charity: water will show us where and how every dollar we raised ended up helping in the field. We'll see GPS coordinates, photos and more details about the communities we've impacted.
Please join me.
