Cosette's Paintings With A Purpose

Read Mission Statement

Every day, 1,400 kids under the age of 5 die from water-related illnesses. We have the power to help change that.

Most of us have no idea what it's like to truly suffer from thirst. 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, 1,400 kids die from water-related illnesses before they reach their fifth birthday. 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.

Cosette started this fundraising campaign to help charity: water build these types of projects around the world, and she is looking for anyone who can help her.

Ever since Cosette became aware of the water crisis, she became passionate about helping end it. She wanted to come up with a way to raise money to help people get clean drinking water and along with her family came up with the idea to make paintings in return for donations towards her $4000 goal. If you would like to learn more about her paintings with a purpose, go to her website www.cosetteart.com

Whether you acquire a painting or not, please consider donating to her 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.
