I want you to have the ultimate brag. We’re going to give FOUR HUNDRED PEOPLE access to clean water if you chip in here. This means 400 humans no longer ingesting parasites from water that looks like chocolate milk. Forever. Because of you. How much do I need from you? $35, or whatever you want to share.

Emotional Leverage:
Remember all those weird donations for years that I've been throwing into your bike marathons? Your 'fun run 5k's? Your festivals? My weirdly generous nature? Your shows where it was me and two other people and I drank heavily to help your cred? Your art auctions where I over-bid and bought half the slate? Your crowd-funded vacations you said were for art? I've purposely never asked for a cent, so that if I ever did you could know it was taking it somewhere important. This is me calling in that chip. If you ignore all that, still, you could consider it a gift of $35 for my 35th year, but really I’m just trying to make you look cool, as usual.

The Power of Math:
- I will match every donation, into US funds, without limit
- Google, which is fond of this idea, has also agreed to match up to $6000 US (~$7500 CAD)
- Because of this, even one dollar becomes nearly 4x as effective thanks to matching and currency conversion

We have plenty of water to drink -- even the water in our toilets is clean! Think about how weird a privilege it is that we have fresh water pools for our shit.

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.

Please donate to this campaign -- anything you can give is a huge help.

Verification and Facts:
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.

    Oh wow. You sweet souls. Water is gonna reach 131 people already because of you. But in reality it's gonna be 400 in the end because I'mma match it all and then Google will as well. If you want pals to get in on the ULTIMATE BRAG and this chance to literally buy into moral superiority, let them know.

    Others: “I am a rotten person.”
    You: “Human beings survive better will get to have healthier families because of me.”

    Put that on your next resume, whoa!

    Because I get to drink clean water, others should too.
