Mark Tibbetts 50th Birthday

Read Mission Statement

I want my 50th birthday to be more than a party. I want to do something to help people get something that will make a big difference in their lives, clean water!

I've made a career in the water treatment industry, so charity: water's mission is the perfect opportunity to give something back.

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.

    Thank you very much to all who've donated to my 50th birthday charity: water campaign. I turned 50 on Thanksgiving Day.

    There are 3 days left before the campaign closes. We've raised $6,200 so far and I'm very happy with the results. My original goal was to raise $5,000. The campaign received more support than had anticipated so I increased the goal to $6,000 and then to $7,500.

    There's 3 days left in the year and many people make donations at this time of year. I wonder if you would be willing to make an additional donation, or if you would forward information on the campaign to a friend or family member who you think might be willing to contribute. Let me know if you need any assistance.

    I will match any donations that are received in the next 3 days 100%, up to $650 (half of what's needed to reach the goal of $7,500). If the campaign reaches the goal, (250) people will get clean water! These unfortunate people are currently getting their water from a disease infected swamp, literally! This is a solvable problem.

    Thanks very much for your support. I really appreciate it.
