Private donors cover our operating cost so that 100% of all public donations can go directly to water project costs.

This campaign brought clean water to Zata, Ethiopia and 1 other project.

In early July this year I met Scott Harrison who put on my Pilot Fire goggles and proclaimed that before he dies he wants to solve the water problem. I believe he might. This year his organization Charity Water is going to get clean water to one million people.

I want to help.

So, I pledged to Scott that I'd use my birthday to raise money and awareness for this incredible cause.

On September 15, I turn 48 years old and instead of asking for gifts, I'm asking for at least $20 from everyone I know. The money is going to build freshwater projects for people in developing countries.

$20 brings safe drinking water to one person. I want to raise $4800 by my birthday so please, if you can, give more.

Almost 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. 30,000 people will die this week alone. The lucky ones won't, but still have to walk hours each day to get dirty water for their families.

The best part: 100% of all donations go directly toward water projects. And about 18 months after this campaign ends, charity: water will show us where and how every dollar we raised ended up helping in the field. We'll see GPS coordinates, photos and more details about the communities we've impacted.

Please join me.
