Imagine living without clean water. Imagine walking hours to the nearest river to collect water for your family -- water that’s not even clean.

While this might seem unimaginable to us, it's a reality for 800 million people in developing countries.

At Origins, we believe it’s SMART to do GOOD. Origins is helping charity: water correct the global water crisis. Help by donating $30 and Origins will match the first 1,000 pledges. $30 provides one person in Ethiopia clean drinking water for up to 10 years.Together, we can double our impact and help bring clean water to more than 1,000 people.

100% of the money we raise will go directly to water project costs, funding long-lasting clean water solutions for people in Ethiopia. When the projects are finished, charity: water will show us the exact communities we've helped using photos and GPS coordinates.

Please join us and help give clean water! It's SMART To Do GOOD!
