September Campaign 2015

Read Mission Statement

This September Campaign is about passionate, creative and goofy fundraisers doing everything they can to bring clean water to 50,000 people in need… and you better believe that the charity: water team is getting in on the action.

This month, our staff and interns are walking the #nothingiscrazy talk and doing everything they can to raise money for clean water. Skydiving, eating peanut butter sandwiches, walking to work with Jerry Cans, dancing on the subway, skiing in bikinis… the list goes on.

And it gets better.

We've set our own goal: to raise $200,000 (with the match!) and bring clean water to more than 6,600 people. But some of our braver staff have also agreed to randomly draw challenges from a hat. So if we reach our $200,000 goal, the following people will be doing the following crazy things:

Kaitlyn S: 24 hours of reggae dancing
Christina: cook dinner for the staff
Makena: play mixologist at an office party
Jordan: come to work in the summer wearing winter clothing
Sabrina: sky dive
Nitya: travel only by bike for a week
Gumbley: one day in a banana suit
Broc: host a party with free foot rubs
Tyler: run to work in undies
Lauren: shave part of head
Vik: get a charity: water tattoo
Carlos: toga for a week
Dan: run a marathon
Sarah: propose to strangers on the street with balloons
Kathleen: eat at every $1 pizza place in Manhattan

Donate here or donate to our individual campaigns! $30 gives one person clean water, and 100% of what you donate funds water projects for people in need. The craziest thing we can do is nothing!

    I have been donating to charityL water for a few years now. I love what you do. One of these years I'll start a campaign but for now, I'd just like to be a part of this year's Sep campaign by donating. Keep up the good work.
