UPDATE: We reached our goal :) :) :) and all our photography giveaways have been accounted for.

But don’t let this little update discourage you from giving towards our goal if you haven’t donated yet. If you have a full heart and a couple of spare bucks to give, PLEASE DO so!!! Our campaign ends Sept 30th (that’s when they’ll start on the project we funded) 100% of anything else we raise beyond the 5K will still absolutely be used appropriately for this cause! Thank you for being world changers!

-------

We wanted a way to empower, inspire and collaborate with those around us to do a meaningful project together LARGER THAN WE COULD EVER DO BY OURSELVES. So here's our plan:

We want to fund an entire water project for Charity Water and WE WANT YOU TO DO IT WITH US.

SO HERE'S HOW IT'S GONNA WORK:

Every donation you make we will match 100% (up to $2,500) with the goal of raising a grand total of $5,000 to fund an entire project. Here on this Charity water page you can pitch in towards the goal... it's super duper easy to do and after your donation is in we will go on and make a matching donation in your name. So it's like you are donating TWICE. Even if you donate 10 or 20 bucks (which will actually end up being 20 to 40 bucks), it can go a VERY long way with this organization! Lets rally together and make a HUGE difference for a community in a developing country!!!

*AS AN ADDED BONUS:

The first two people to donate $250 or more will receive a FREE portrait photoshoot by us (a $500 value). And ANYONE (unlimited) who donates $500 or more will also receive a completely FREE photoshoot. Just click on the blue button that says "Donate to my campaign", enter all your info, receive your tax deductible receipt, and your name will automatically appear at the bottom of this page with the amount you contributed (or you can choose to donate anonymously - if so, you'll need to contact us and let us know it was YOU who donated $250 or more so we can set up your free photoshoot), either way we'll match your donation and you're all set to COMPLETELY change someone's world in a developing country.

THANK YOU EVERYONE for joining us, ANY AMOUNT will go a long way with this cause. We're so excited to do this with you!!!

Learn about the water crisis

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.
