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.

Private donors cover our operating cost so that 100% of all public donations can go directly to water project costs.

Many of us have no idea what it's like to be thirsty. We have plenty of water to drink -- even the water in our toilets is clean!

But many people around the world don’t have that luxury. Every day, about 1,400 children die from diseases caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are simple solutions like drilled wells, spring protections and BioSand filters that help provide clean water to communities around the world.

I started this fundraising campaign to help charity: water build these types of projects around the world, and I'm looking for anyone who can help me.

Please donate to my campaign -- anything you can give is a huge help.

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

    Facts:
    According to the National Retail Federation (2018) the average American will spend $143 on Valentine’s Day.
    This day brings in an estimate of $19.6 billions (2018), and all it really buys is one night’s fun and more material object that most of us truly don’t need.

    Now, what we need in order to live long, healthy lives is clean water. And many of us are fortunate enough to have that easily accessible at all times of all days in this lifetime. Many human beings are not that lucky, and just because they were born in a different location of this beautiful planet, Earth, they are the ones suffering.
    If you have even a dollar that you know you don’t desperately need. If you can skip your takeaway coffee just one day. If you can live without that pair of pants that you kind of wanted to buy. Or if you can make your partner understand that a small gift for him/her means the greatest gift for someone in need, I want you to send a small or big amount on its way.
    Kiss that money goodbye and thank it for turning into something so spectacular and life-changing for others, when all it could’ve meant to you was a coffee, a drink, clothes, a book, whatever your thing is.
    Send it on its way, and know you’re spending that money giving love that truly matters to another human being for Valentine’s Day ♥️
