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.

Many of us have no idea what it's like to be thirsty. 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, about 1,400 children die from diseases caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation. 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.

I started this fundraising campaign to help charity: water build these types of projects around the world, and I'm looking for anyone who can help me. If everyone in my social networks donates $20, I will more than exceed my goal to raise $12,000. In fact, I will tripple it. Imagine if everyone in your network donated $20 too.

Please donate to my 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.

    If everyone in my network donates $20 and gets their network to do the same we will raise $12K - the cost to drill a well to bring water to an entire community

    Help transform lives for families around the world. Every single penny will help bring clean water to communities in need. My goal is $12,000, the cost to create a new well for an entire village. All donations are greatly appreciated. Please share with everyone in your network. Together we can make a difference. Thank you!!
