Read Mission Statement

November is my birthday month. And when my friends and family asked me what I wanted for my birthday, I realised that what I wanted most was to make a difference in someone's life.

Well, clean water makes a HUGE difference in people's lives! With clean water people are healthier. They stay in school longer (girls especially). They become self-sufficient. They aren't as impacted by outside forces like regional conflicts and ineffective government services.

I'm incredibly lucky. I don't have to spend hours a day walking to collect water that may or may not be truly clean. I only have to spend about 15 seconds walking to one of three taps in my house if I want clean water.

Just $20 can give one person clean water to drink. Please help me celebrate my birthday this year and donate to my campaign. The best part is that 100% of the money we raise will directly fund water projects around the world, and when those projects are complete, charity: water will send us photos and GPS coordinates so we can SEE the impact we made.

Awesome. I can't think of a better birthday gift.
