In a lot of developing countries water is scarce and/or contaminated, virtually undrinkable and if you're like me, you don't spend too much time thinking about water -- it's everywhere we go. We're lucky because when we're thirsty, we flip a handle or push a button. When we're dirty, we twist a shower knob. When we use the bathroom, when our garden needs watering-- water is just an arm’s length away.
But, while working in Africa I witnessed first hand, women and children walking for hours, through the bush, up and down mountains, just to collect water that has the potential to make them really sick. It was eye-opening but more importantly, heart-opening. So I want to Champion this water campaign and be a champion for someone!
I want to play a small part in changing someone's life, maybe their health. Maybe we'll help change an entire village...or country...or even a continent.
I'm asking you to donate what you can, every cent counts, but if you need a little incentive, below are some gifts I can give for your generosity:
- Every $15+ donation will receive one of my autographed photos.
- The first 100 donations of $30+ will received a copy of my CD "Grown & Sexy Music", SIGNED along with an autographed photo.
- Every $50+ donation enters you into a raffle to win a SIGNED Jerry Can by the CAST & EXECUTIVE PRODUCERS of Castle as well as the signed CD & Photo.
- And the HIGHEST donor and a guest will be flown personally by me, get a private lunch, be my guest to the set of Castle & will be my VIP guest at one of my live shows here in Los Angeles with backstage access and a pre-show dinner. Maybe more... (US only)
100% of everything we raise will directly fund water projects in Ethiopia. And when those projects are finished, charity: water will send us proof in pictures and GPS coordinates, so we can see the actual people and communities we impacted.
Thank you all so much for joining me,
