Sam's Birthday Clean Water Campaign

Read Mission Statement

Hey Friends-

My birthday is coming up! I've been BLESSED with gifts and well-wishes throughout the year so I'd like to change the focus on my birthday to people who aren't as fortunate. Many of us have no idea what it's like to be thirsty. We have plenty of water to drink -- even the water in our toilets is clean!

But many people around the world don’t have that luxury. Every day, about 1,400 children die from diseases caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are simple solutions like drilled wells, spring protections and BioSand filters that help provide clean water to communities around the world.

I started this fundraising campaign to help charity: water build these types of projects around the world, and I'm looking for anyone who can help me.

In lieu of a gift for me and/or if you feel moved, please donate to my campaign -- anything you can give is a huge help.

100% of the money will be used to build clean water projects, and when they’re complete, charity: water will send us photos and GPS coordinates so we can see the exact community we helped.

Thank you!!!
