Before I'm 30...

Before I'm 30...

Read Mission Statement

This year I'm celebrating my birthday differently. I don't want presents or drinks. Before I'm 30, I want to bring clean water to 100 people.

Clean water is right at our fingertips. Even the water we wash our dishes with is considered safe to drink. YET, women and children around the world walk HOURS every day to collect water for their families. And the WORST part? The water they collect can make them really sick. Terrible, right? I want to do something about that. By collecting money from each of you, we can make their lives so much better.

The best part is that 100% of the money we raise will directly fund water projects around the world, and when those projects are complete, charity: water will send us photos and GPS coordinates so we can see the impact we made. Please help me make this new year a year of impact, change, health, and awareness.

I only ask for a donation of that drink you were going to get at Starbucks, the shoes that went on sale, or the gift that you were going to get me. Anything helps. :)

Love,
Jen

PS. Even more amazing is if we pass $6500, to bring MORE water to MORE people.

This campaign brought clean water to Nturo Center, Rwanda.

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.
