Read Mission Statement

Many of us have no idea what it's like to be thirsty. We have plenty of water to drink -- even the water in our toilets is clean!

But many people around the world don’t have that luxury. Every day, about 1,400 children die from diseases caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are simple solutions like drilled wells, spring protections and BioSand filters that help provide clean water to communities around the world.

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.

    Thanks Nate. I too am looking for a way to let meaning and purpose and concern for others guide my life. Still not sure how that will look. But for today I will participate with you.

    It's really sad to see people living this way. We are so fortunate in the United States and take so many things for granted.

    I've been in Africa where there was no clean water to drink. I carried enough with me for my stay. These people aren't leaving. They need the safety of a well. I'm so pleased for this opportunity to give.
