Weight Loss For Water (Judy, Cindy, Erica)

Read Mission Statement

***This campaign is currently run by Judy, Cindy, and Erica---anyone who wishes to join in, is still more than welcome!***

In three months, we're going to be able to say, "We lost weight...AND helped give people water!" All with your help

Every week, millions of women and their children walk more than 14 miles just to get water for their families. Most of this water is contaminated, but it's the only water they have. They take the chance of catching diseases like bilharzia and schistosomiasis (parasites) - with every sip. There's nothing they can do to change it.

So, what can we do?

Our mission is to raise $5,000 for water. We want every step, counted calorie, and weigh in to matter. We're asking for pledges per pound, or flat donations-whatever tickles your fancy.

Example: one of you says you'll lose 20 pounds in 3 months...you can then decide to donate $1 per pound, etc...or to have someone sponsor you.

Why 20 lbs? Because $20 gives one person water for 20 years.

So, we get healthy, people get water, and you are a champion for this amazing cause!

Because of charity: water's unique model, 100% of all donations go directly to water projects, and each donation is "proved" when projects are complete. We aim to raise $5,000 in the next three months.

We hope you'll join us in helping them now.
