Paull, Alex and Shashi Turn 100

Read Mission Statement

Shashi, Alex and I are not only good mates and rugby teammates, but our birthdays fall on the 16th, 17th and 18th of September. And this year, together we turn 100!

But even though it's a big birthday for us -- we don't want any gifts. We don't even want you to buy us a beer. We'd just like you to donate to this campaign to help bring people clean water in Rwanda.

In 2010 we joined the charity: water September Campaign for the Bayaka people of Central African Republic and our friends generously gave $6,504. This allowed us to fund one rehabilitated well in full, and help fund another water project.

This year, we (and each of our friends who gave) were able to see photos of the water project we built here: http://mycharitywater.org/p/myprojectsview?project_id=CF.ICD.Q4.10.065.145&campaign_id=6382

Now, we're inspired to fundraise again. And this year we're trying to raise $15,000 to fully fund a tap stand in Rwanda that will serve 250 people clean water. Watch the video on the right to see where 100% (every cent) of the money will be going.

Give $29 for Paull's 29th, $33 for Alex's 33rd, $38 for Shashi's 38th, or $100 for the three of us! $65 can bring one person clean water in Rwanda, and if we hit our goal we'll fund most of a tapstand for a village of 250 people.

A final incentive: if you're in NYC we're going to throw a cool party with a live band at Alex's building in the LES. If you donate: you're invited!<br><br>If you're not in NYC, I'll get your address and send you a postcard.

Thank you for your generosity and for helping us hit our goal!

Update September 1: Awesome to have already raised over $4000! Thanks guys! To add some more pressure -- Shashi and I are swearing off booze until we hit our fundraising goal. Please donate so we can have a beer!

UPDATE SEPTEMBER 7: Thanks to 73 generous donations and especially one huge one from Chase Edge, we hit our first goal of $10,000 raised. Shashi and I can now have a beer (yes!), and we're now upping our goal to $15,000 -- the full cost of a tap stand that will serve a full village of 250 people clean water. Let's get there!
