This campaign brought clean water to Nen Kiwangi, Uganda.

Hey guys!

So on 20th of April, I turn 20! What would I like for my birthday you ask? Great question! I would love to provide 20 people on this beautiful planet of clean drinking water! Helping 20 people to get clean water will cost 600 dollars!
So welcome to ‘the 20 project’:

20th of April
20 years old
20 people who get clean drinking water
And I’d love to challenge you to give 20 dollars as birthday donation!
#the20project

Please share this with friends, work colleagues, enemies, pets & drunk people at the bar. This project is not about me, but about making this world a better place! My personal dream is that we raise far more than 600 dollars, so even more people can have clean water!

Why clean water you ask?

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.

I started this fundraising campaign to help build these types of projects around the world, and I'm looking for anyone who can help me. So any amount is changing someone's life!

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. Honestly, how cool is that?
