Chloe's Birthday Wish

Read Mission Statement

All of our birthdays are always about getting things - presents, money, shots at the bar. But when it comes down to it, there are so many people in the world who could utilize my birthday better than I ever could.

So this year, I'm giving my birthday up.

I'm turning 25 years old and instead of asking for gifts, I'm asking for $500 from everyone I know. 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.

My birthday wish this year is to give clean and safe drinking water to some of the billion people living without it. I want 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. Thank you in advance for your kind & selfless donation. Good karma, bitches! xo.

This campaign brought clean water to May Maichew Community, Ethiopia.

Learn about the water crisis

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.
