Diseases from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Your donation will help change that.

Private donors cover our operating cost so that 100% of all public donations can go directly to water project costs.

Do you know what's in your sippy cup? I do, because I live in a country with clean water.

Unfortunately, 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. Simple solutions like drilled wells, spring protections and BioSand filters help provide clean water to communities who wouldn't get to experience it otherwise.

My first birthday EVER is coming up on January 4th and I decided to give it away to charity: water to help build water projects around the world. I can't do it by myself though, so I'm asking you to join me!

100% of the money you give 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. How cool is that?

Since a first birthday is a big deal, I decided to go big or go home - I want to raise $10,000, which is usually enough to build a well from start to finish. I know it's a lot of money, but chances are that if you give a little and then spread the word to your friends and family, we can do it! So....

Are you in??
