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.

The craziest thing we can do - is nothing.

Every day, about 1,400 children die from diseases caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation. Lack of access to clean water disproportionately effects women and children, who bear the brunt of the water collection burden. In Africa alone, women spend 40 billion hours a year walking for water. Women are responsible for 72% of the water collected in Sub-Saharan African. Girls are kept out of school not only because many must walk 2-4 hours daily to retrieve water, but because in absence of clean water, teenage girls have to stay home for one week out of every month.

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. Check it out: WE CAN END THE GLOBAL WATER CRISIS IN THIS LIFETIME.

There's so many charities out there it can make your head spin. I get that. Want to see your donation have a direct and tangible impact? Give here. I believe charity: water is one of the most effective philanthropic organizations around. And, private donors directly fund the operational costs required to run the organization. That means that 100% of the money raised here will be used to build clean water projects. When complete, charity: water will send us photos and GPS coordinates so we can see the exact community we helped.

$30 represents giving 1 person access to clean water. For my 33rd birthday, I'd like to give 33 people this precious gift I take for granted every single day. And I need your help.
