Read Mission Statement

We're down to the last week of my campaign and I want to give a sincere thank-you to everyone who has contributed so far. We're almost to the goal and I know we can make it... I'm thankful every day for the fortunes and opportunities I've been given in this life. And I take too much for granted ... please help me to give something back to those less fortunate. Water is a right, but it takes real effort and funds to make it a worldwide reality ...

Millions of people around the world don't have access to clean, safe water. Many kids don't make it to their 5th birthday as a result. I've been blessed with 39 this year ... and I want to try and help others make it as far as I have.

I'm asking for my age in dollars from everyone I know. Every single penny of the money raised will directly fund clean water projects in developing countries. Charity: water will show us exactly which projects we funded once they've been fully completed (which takes about 18 months). That means we'll know the locations and names of the communities we helped.

Help me to help others. Please donate to my birthday campaign. We take water for granted. Help us to let more and more of us around the world do the same. Happy birthday to everyone this year -- here's to many, many more.
