Scotland's 1st Birthday

Scotland Hopkins

Scotland's 1st Birthday

Read Mission Statement

On December 3, 2009, I'm turning 1.

At first, this seemed surreal, even daunting.

But then I found out that millions of people don't live to see their 5th birthday. And why? Because they didn't have access to clean, safe water.

I was adopted to the United States in August. Here clean water is often taken for granted. The reason I was up for adoption is because my birth mother died FROM DRINKING UNCLEAN WATER!!!!

I'm asking for $5.00 from everyone I know - and every penny of the money raised will go directly to fund freshwater wells in developing nations. Even better, every dollar is "proved" when the projects are complete, and photos and GPS coordinates are posted using Google Earth.

My goal is to raise $500 by my birthday, December 3, 2009.

Please consider helping me.
