Here's the deal:

I've grown up very fortunate. I've never had to want for food, shelter, and certainly not a clean glass of water. So this year, for my 29th birthday on August 12th, I am setting out to raise $1,000 for Charity Water. I'm tired of not doing enough to help others. And I certainly don't need any more stuff. So I'm raising some money.

The best part: 100% of all donations go directly toward water projects. And about 18 months after this campaign ends, charity: water will show us where and how every dollar we raised ended up helping in the field. We'll see GPS coordinates, photos and more details about the communities we've impacted.

So if you've got a few bucks to spare, I'd be so honored if you helped me celebrate how incredibly fortunate I am by sharing some of that good fortune with others.

Love

Richard

    I thought you already did your part to conserve water by drinking beer and wine, but I'll gladly support these efforts too!

    Trying to get your current total to end in 29, realizing (slightly too late) that just one other donation could foil this gesture. Thought that counts? Happy birthday, very nice idea.
