This campaign brought clean water to Laminokwera Community, Uganda.

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!

But many 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. There are simple solutions like drilled wells, spring protections and BioSand filters that help provide clean water to communities around the world.

With that said I want to enlist your help for a little fun!

I can check off the list getting my FIRST cast ever! (Thankful to be on the real road to recovery now) Growing up the only thing that looked fun about having to get a cast was getting all your friends to sign it! Well I want to play along with this tradition & have all of you sign my cast... But there's a bit of twist...

I am starting a campaign to raise awareness & money to bring clean, safe water to developing nations, a cause that has been very dear to my heart for some time now.

Just $30 can give a person access to clean, safe water. Access to clean water can change everything... It can bring an entire community out of poverty, keep girls in school and prevent deadly diseases to name a few.

So the twist is you have to make a nominal donation to Charity: water to "sign my cast"!

Donate $15 - I will sign your name on my cast, post a picture of it on my social media and tag you.

Donate $30 - gives 1 person access to clean, safe water - I will sign your name and write a 1 line positive message or favorite uplifting quote to encourage my healing & brighten the world around us. I will post a picture and tag you on my social media.

Donate $3000 or more - you can sign my cast personally and have a picture taken to be posted on social media.


1. Visit donation page (you're on it) ;)
2. Learn about charity water and why I'm so passionate about this cause.
3. Donate as you wish. Every $1 makes an impact. Help with whatever you can spare.
4. When going through the donation process on the campaign website, You will see an option to write a comment to go along with the donation. Please write the name to be signed, your @instagram name to tag you in the picture and if you donated more than $40 include your favorite uplifting quote.


FINE PRINT: Terms and conditions do apply.
1. I reserve the right of refusal at my personal discretion of the perks mentioned above in exchange for said donation, including but not limited to, meet and greet for signature signing.
2. I will refund the full donation personally with a limit of up to $100 if I refuse perk.
3. Details for meet and greet signing are at my discretion. Any additional expense incurred to make it happen is at your expense only.
4. All donations come with a tax ID number that will be emailed to you directly from @charity:water. The donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by the law.

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.
