This campaign brought clean water to Afiu Community, Ethiopia.

On November 20th, I'm turning 30.

At first, this seemed surreal, even daunting.

But just a couple of days ago I found out that millions of people don't live to see their 5th birthday. And why? Because they didn't have access to clean, safe water.

So I'm not scared of turning 30 anymore. In fact, I'm celebrating my birthday like never before.

I'm asking for $30 from everyone I know - and every penny of the money raised will go directly to fund freshwater wells in developing nations. Even better, every dollar is "proved" when the projects are complete, and photos and GPS coordinates are posted using Google Earth.

My goal is to raise $1,000 by the end of the year.

Please consider helping me.
