Mission Statement

Here...we...go...!

Dear Friends and Family,

. My Birthday is in one month from today (yay!), and I would like to celebrate this year in a very unique way. I normally don't celebrate my birthday although some friends "force" me into having a wonderful celebration <3. However this year I found out that millions of people don't live to see their 5th birthday. And why is that?? As simple as the problem sounds, they simply did not have access to safe, clean water so I want to celebrate my birthday like never before.
. I'm asking everyone I know, even people I just met AND JUST added to Facebook for which normally on my birthday I would get a kind and simple greeting, and just asking you to do a little more so by helping my wish come true.
. There's even some of you I haven't been able to reconnect with but I still want to extend this invitation to you because hopefully at the very least your eyes will have been opened as much mine have when I heard about this charity.

Every penny of the money raised will go directly to fund freshwater projects in developing nations. Even better, every dollar is validated when the projects are complete, and photos and GPS coordinates are posted using Google Earth. Please, Please consider helping me.

Thank you so much!!!

Every penny counts. :)

Thank you so much for all you do,
Ron Mendoza

Personal shout out to Joe Lee for helping me with this campaign!

P.S.
Whether $20, $10, or $5, every penny counts! To show you I truly want to make this a success to reach at least $2,000 I'll donate 10% of the total we all accumulate! Here is 5% ($100) right now because I know we'll at least get there. Thank you all for taking the time to look over this and thank you especially to anyone who helps me with this radical notion. =)

You fundraised, donated and came to a birthday party -- all to help us raise money for two new drilling rigs in Tigray, Ethiopia. Each rig will go on to drill 80 new wells, and together they'll change 80,000 lives -- every single year for the next 15 years.
