Diseases from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Your donation will help change that.

Private donors cover our operating cost so that 100% of all public donations can go directly to water project costs.

A birthday is a special time to celebrate with family and friends – to acknowledge the preciousness of life. November 29th is my 25th birthday (a quarter of a century). But, instead of using the day to direct attention to me, I would like to direct our attention to one of the world's greatest organizations, charity: water.

I am committing to raising $500 which will give 16 people access to long-term drinking water in their local town. Along with my own donation, I am looking to you, my friends and family, to offer your support. Please consider making a suggested donation of $25 to match my age (or whatever you're financially able). Anything you can give will be a huge help!

100% of your money will be used to build clean water projects (no admin costs deducted), and when they’re complete, charity: water will send us photos and GPS coordinates so we can see the exact community we helped.

I appreciate your love for me and the love for others you've shown by donating to this campaign ❤️.

Regards,
– Jon

From charity: water,

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.
