$30 for my 30th

Happy September Everyone!

This year…I’m turning the big 3-0. It’s a huge birthday - that I’ve been dragging my feet towards. I’ve spent the better part of this year, trying to figure out what huge activities I could do to do this birthday justice, and then I decided to donate my birthday. There’s a charity that is near and dear to my heart called Charity: Water. Their mission is very simple: To bring clean water to everyone who needs it. Water is such a normal thing for us, that I know I take how easily it’s accessible to me for granted on a regular basis.

My goal is to raise $5,000. I know that’s a lot - but go big or go home, right? $5,000 is what it costs to fund a whole water project. Since I fall under the September Campaign, this year all that money is going to fund a rig to drill water faster. And every ounce of money will go to that. No one makes a profit from this - but villages can be helped and saved with the simple gift of water.

So, for my birthday, I’m asking everyone and anyone to help me reach this goal. $30 for my 30th. And I don’t expect just you guys to help get this goal achieved…I’m donating money too.

But wait! There’s more! The first 10 people who donate will get a photography book! Yes, I’m giving things away! And everyone will get a personalized thank you note. This means a great deal to me…and I want to make sure I show my appreciation for your help. I hope you guys can help me reach this goal! It’s all I want for my birthday!

Join me -- each drilling rig can help bring clean water to 80 new villages each year, and help 40,000 people get clean water.

This campaign helped fund a rig in Ethiopia that can drill 80 wells a year.
