You wanna talk about crazy?

663 million people on this planet don’t have access to clean water. That’s 1 in 11 of us!

That means 1 out of 11 people in our world is drinking water that comes from a river, lake or muddy hole in the ground every day. Dirty, contaminated water that has leeches and debris in it. Water that causes disease, keeps kids out of school and takes hours to bring back home.

What’s NOT crazy is doing something to help. I joined charity: water’s September Campaign this year because I believe that every person on the planet deserves clean water, and I’m looking for anyone who can help me.

100% of the money will be used to build clean water projects for people in need, and when they’re complete, charity: water will send us photos and GPS coordinates so we can see the exact community we helped.

You can give a little or you can give a lot. The craziest thing we can do is nothing.

This campaign brought clean water to Mai Ayni 2 Community, Ethiopia and 4 other projects.

    Mike, your ingenious ideas continue to amaze me. I admire your Self-Made Man series. I am a member of list grow and will get very serious about working it as soon as I finish my book which should not be too long now. I'm thinking about using your charity fund raising method this Christmas. My father and sister both died of cancer
