Brett's 23rd Birthday

Read Mission Statement

Hi, I am Brett! I am a software engineer at charity: water, and I want to raise money for helping the 663 million people without clean water get access to clean water.

Before even joining charity: water as a software engineer, I decided that I would give up my 23rd birthday and ask folks to donate to help bring clean water to people instead of receiving gifts. Sorry Mom, that means no sending an apple pie in the mail this year, I would rather see the money for shipping it go to my campaign!

Thank you so much everyone who has supported me over these wonderful 23 years, it means a lot to me, and together we can help support other people.

My goal is to raise $2300 on or before my birthday on September 24th. That means if 100 of you donate $23 dollars, we will reach that goal.

100% of the money will be used to build clean water projects for people in need, and when they’re complete, charity: water will send us photos and GPS coordinates so we can see the exact community we helped.
