Chuck's 32nd birthday

Read Mission Statement

All of my birthdays have always been about stuff. Stuff I don't want, stuff I definitely don't need.

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

Dec. 4th, I'm turning 32 years old, and instead of asking for gifts, I'm asking for $32 or more from everyone I know. It's not going to me, though. All of it is going to build freshwater wells for people in developing nations.

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. 45,000 people will die this week alone. The lucky ones won't, but still walk hours each day to get dirty water to give to their families.

My birthday wish this year is not for more gifts I don't need; it's to give clean and safe drinking water to some of the billion living without it. I want to make my birthday matter this year.

Please join me. http://eesley.blogspot.com/2010/11/water.html

please note: Because of charity: water's unique model, 100% of all donations go directly to direct water projects costs, and each donation is "proved" and tracked to the village it helped when projects are complete.

This campaign brought clean water to Metari (Kal Hutsa) 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.
