My Birthday Wish

Read Mission Statement

On January 5, 2011, I'm turning 29!!

At first, this seemed surreal, even daunting.

But then 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 nervous about turning 29 anymore. In fact, I'm celebrating my birthday like never before.

I'm asking for $29 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 $500 by my birthday, January 5, 2011.

Please consider helping me. Thank you!!
