Scott Harrison talked about the power of $5000 and how it can change an entire community of people's lives forever: one source to clean water can mean all the difference.
For my 29th birthday, I'm hoping for a huge goal: I'm hoping to inspire 1000 people to donate just $29 to the cause. $29 for my birthday is the same amount as a fancy bottle of wine, or a few drinks at a bar, or a meal out with friends. So here's what I'm asking: don't buy me a present, but donate a little bit to this big dream of mine instead.
Put another way, I'll need 290 people to donate $100.
I'm not sure if I can do it -- it's a crazy goal. So here's some extra incentive: if 100 people donate $29, I'll pitch in my own $1000 to the cause.
And if there are 1000 people who donate $29 (or we get to $29,000 some other way!!), I'm willing to do something crazy: I'll swim from Alcatraz to San Francisco wearing nothing but my birthday suit.
If you want to donate more than $29, dude, I'm game if you are!
That's right. Water, y'all.
