It's SMART To Do GOOD

Read Mission Statement

Imagine living without clean water. Imagine walking hours to the nearest river to collect water for your family -- water that’s not even clean.

While this might seem unimaginable to us, it's a reality for 800 million people in developing countries.

At Origins, we believe it’s SMART to do GOOD. Origins is helping charity: water correct the global water crisis. Help by donating $30 and Origins will match the first 1,000 pledges. $30 provides one person in Ethiopia clean drinking water for up to 10 years.Together, we can double our impact and help bring clean water to more than 1,000 people.

100% of the money we raise will go directly to water project costs, funding long-lasting clean water solutions for people in Ethiopia. When the projects are finished, charity: water will show us the exact communities we've helped using photos and GPS coordinates.

Please join us and help give clean water! It's SMART To Do GOOD!

    I wish this were going to Tanzania, where I've seen the need, but the need for clean water is ubiquitous in much of Africa and this is an efficient way to help.
