Hello all,
I can’t express how appreciative I am that you’re visiting my charity: water campaign. When I first decided to create a bucket-list project in celebration of the lessons my late grandmother taught me, I wanted to focus on chasing and experiencing the places, people, and parts of life that sparked my interest the most. I soon realized I wanted to use Project 87 as an opportunity to impact people’s lives in a bigger way than just crossing items off my list - there needed to be a more meaningful piece to it. That’s why myself and PROJECT 87 have partnered with charity: water.

Each item I cross off my list, I’m asking individuals and companies to donate to charity: water and help bring clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries.

Water, clean water is something we take for granted everyday, when the reality is there’s 663 million people who don’t have access to clean water. Women and children spend hours everyday collecting water for their families, the worst part is the only water that’s available to them is usually dirty and makes them sick.

In quoting charity: water, “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.”

I started this fundraising campaign to help charity: water build these types of projects around the world, and I'm looking for anyone who can help me. I think there’s a massive opportunity to drastically change lives for people who deserve to know what it’s like to have clean, safe drinkable water. Please donate to my campaign and help me bring clean water to 3,000 people!

100% of your donation 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 our impact and how water changes everything.

    Your P87 initiative inspired me to create a list of my own that brought me to places, experiences and people I would've never reached without a little extra push. My #1 goal was to raise enough money through my side business to give back to you as a thanks for the inspo. Mission accomplished. Keep doing what you're doing.

    First off I want to thank you for starting this campaign and giving me the chance to make a difference in someone’s life. It’s not everyday you get the opportunity to change a life for the better in such a monumental way. It’s easy to forget that it’s ordinary people being kind in small ways that can affect the most change. I also just wanted to take the opportunity to say that I genuinely appreciate how sincere and kind you are in your online presence. Your posts are always a bright spot on my insta feed and I’m happy you use your influence to spread awareness for causes and people that need attention. It’s so easy to be cynical, to hate things and look past those that need help. It takes a brave person to have faith and hope that change can happen, and an even braver person to believe they can make a difference. So long story short I want to thank you for being brave and kind and making me want to be braver and kinder in return. Cheers Hannah

    You are my favorite person on Instagram! You are the most inspiring and genuine dude! You inspire me to live life to the fullest, to get back to my passion and volunteer ( I plan to volunteer a minimum of 364 hours by the time I turn 30), to set goals for the rest of my 20’s, to push my style boundaries, to be the best version of myself. Ultimately you are #influencingpositivechange everyday (my personal motto). You fucking rock Drew!
