Mission Statement

On Nov. 14, I'm turning 52.

Though that sounds old, it is a great blessing because 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 celebrating my birthday in a different way. There really isn't anything I need, so I'm asking for $52 from everyone I know to help build a freshwater well in a developing country. Every penny raised will go directly to the well. Even better, when the project is complete, you can receive photos and GPS coordinates for Google Earth to actually see the well that you helped to build for my birthday.

My goal is to raise $5000 by my birthday, Nov. 14. $5000 will build a well that will provide clean water to 250 people. Please consider helping me. If $52 is too much, then give $26 or whatever you can.

Thanks for being a part of improving the lives of others and making my 52nd birthday a special one.

Diseases from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Your donation will help change that.
