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.

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 charity: water build these types of projects around the world, and I'm looking for anyone who can help me.

Please donate to my campaign -- anything you can give is a huge help.

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.

    Hey I’m Josie! When I watched Scott’s video I was inspired. So inspired I can’t even describe it to you. I mean, imagine if eventually every person on the planet has clean water. I want to be able to say I was a part of that. I want to be able to say that I brought someone joy and love and a feeling of protection. But I need your help. Help me save 12 people. Help me feel pride at the thought that you and I helped save a real person’s life! I mean how incredible would that be?! Thank you for everything:)
