38 Hot Dogs for 38 People

Read Mission Statement

Every day, about 1,400 children die from diseases caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation.

EVERY DAY. That sucks. A lot.

And it doesn’t have to be that way. Drilled wells, spring protections and BioSand filters help provide clean water to communities around the world, and we can help them more of them get built.

Last year, at the Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest at Coney Island, I ate 32.5 hot dogs in 10 minutes. And it took a lot of training, that I wouldn't have been able to man-up to, if it wasn't for your donations to help people get clean water for life. You save lives, I eat hot dogs. That's the deal.

So this year, my goal is to up my abilities and eat an extra plate of hot dogs. That's 38 hot dogs in 10 minutes. And it's going to require a lot of work. But it's work I'll gladly put in if we can help 38 people get clean water for life, and save them from being another sad statistic.

I hope you'll join me, and help me reach both of these goals.

For every $110 we raise, I'll do a practice run and post it online to prove that I'm keeping up my end of the deal.

As always, 100% of donations to directly to the field, so that means every penny you donate will go towards building wells and saving lives.

Thank you for caring!
