After the success of last year's charity water campaign on my 24th birthday where we raised enough funds to build a well in Rwanda, I've decided to start a new one for my 25th to help people in Orissa, India.
I won't be having a big birthday party nor asking for gifts on the 12th of September... Instead, I am asking you to donate to one of my favourite charities, charity:water my age in dollars. I'm turning a quarter of a century - 25 years old!
Clean water is one of life's most basic necessities. You've all read the facts and seen the figures of what dirty water can do to a life, a society, a country... It hinders children from attending school, wastes time from work and causes 4000 children to die daily from water-related diseases.
Why is it one of my favourite charities? It changes lives forever and it gives 100% of public donations to the cause. Operational costs are all covered by private investors!!
Drinking water is not accessible to over 1 billion people in the world. So if you donate $25, $250 or any amount you can (every dollar counts), you will be helping me change lives.
