Give Me Water for My 21st Birthday

Give Me Water for My 21st Birthday

Read Mission Statement

Dear friends,

My 21st birthday is around the corner. Last year was amazing - I discovered my love for portrait photography, got to know many lovely people in Switzerland and Uruguay, was accepted in Lucerne and spent almost three months with my love in Uruguay.

I know I live a very privileged and safe life. Unfortunately, many can’t claim the same. Every day, about 1,400 children die from diseases caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation. Can you imagine that? Here we can even drink the water that comes out of the bathroom faucets!

I want to change that and decided that I don’t want to receive any physical birthday gifts this year. Instead, I set up a campaign at charity: water to help people with no access to clean water. It’s a great organization. 100% (yes, really a HUNDRED percent!!) of our donations will be used to build clean water projects and when the money is used in the field, we get to see where it went. I think that’s awesome!

So what I’m asking from you is to donate 21$ (because it’s my 21st birthday). If you can’t afford that much, it’s fine, 5$ (or whatever it should be) is great as well! Every amount makes a difference. Please help me help others! My goal is to raise at least 777$. That would help 25 people getting clean water. That’s a great start, don’t you think? :)

Thank you so much for considering donating! I’m really grateful for that. We can change the world we live in.
