This campaign brought clean water to Rurenge (Chez Manirarora) Community, Rwanda.

My birthday is almost here. I'm really thankful to have lived another happy, healthy year. Inspired by my brother, Ryan, and his Charity Water campaign last month, I decided to do the same.

Every single day we use our fresh, clean well water at my house. Showers, baths, endless cups of water for drinking, cooking, washing, and watering our garden and lawn. We are blessed and try not to take clean water for granted.

Did you know? Millions of kids around the world don't live to see their fifth birthday because they don't have access to clean, safe drinking water. We can help change that.

I'm asking for my age in dollars from everyone I know. Every penny of the money raised will directly fund clean water projects in developing countries. Even better, charity: water will show us exactly which projects we funded once they've been fully completed (which takes about 18 months). That means we'll know the locations and names of the communities we helped.

Help me reach my goal of $600 - $600 will help bring 9 people water. Hopefully we can go above and beyond! The average campaign raises just over $900. I've got all my fingers & toes crossed that we can raise even more.

Please donate to my birthday campaign!
