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!

Millions of 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; let's make an impact together and change this. There are simple solutions like drilled wells, spring protections and BioSand filters that help provide clean water to communities around the world and improve lives.

Last year's Welly Maker campaign raised over $40,000 and projects are underway in Mozambique. For those of you that contributed, THANK YOU, you will continue getting updates from the field. Here are two stories highlighting the impact of water in Mozambique that I wanted to share The 15-Year-Old President and More Bread For The Baking .

I am hoping to inspire the Fantasy Sports community to help raise even more this year! My wife and I will match the first $40,000 raised and for those of you able to make contributions of $1,000 or more, we will provide a gift from the charity: water store.

The spirit of the campaign is to forego one chance to change your life through the Sunday Million or the Millionaire Maker for a guarantee to change someone else's life. The estimated cost of providing sustainable clean water for someone's entire life is just $30.

Your donations provide others with an opportunity to not only survive, but to start to thrive; with something that you and I take for granted every day - clean water!

Please donate to the 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.
