This campaign brought clean water to Pathivara Tamangdanda Community, Nepal.

There's a lot going on in the world and a lot of issues that need to be dealt with, but there's a common thread in many poverty-related issues...clean water.

Over ONE BILLION people don't don't have access to safe drinking water and have to walk for hours every day to get water from stagnant ponds and muddy rivers. Not only does this water carry so many diseases and bacterias, but the journey to get the water can be dangerous and take lots of time out of the workday.

One of my new year's resolutions this year was to GIVE MORE. With the rest of the "Fairly Odd Folk" we decided that we want to give TEN PERCENT of everything we make from merchandise sales this year to charity: water. Whey them? They help make a DIRECT impact on people's lives and they're targeting an problem that is affecting one billion people.

So we have a goal of $1500, which may not seem very grand, but we want to meet this goal and then make new goals throughout the year. I would encourage you to think of what you can give to help us change some people's lives, whether it's a one-time donation or a regular thing, like we're doing.

Please give generously and help spread the word about how we can make a HUGE impact on fathers, mothers, and children in some of the poorest areas of the world.
