$40 for 40 years

Read Mission Statement

On September 10th, I'm turning 40. And this year, I don't want presents. I want to play a part in solving the water crisis.

Women and children in Rwanda walk for hours every day, up and down mountains, warping their backs, just to collect water from rivers. And the worst part? The water often makes them sick.

But we can help.

I'm asking everyone for my age in donations. Give $40, more if you can, less if you can't, and help give the gift of clean water.

100% of the money raised will directly fund water projects in Rwanda. And when those projects are complete, charity: water will send us photos and GPS coordinates so we can see the impact we made.

I can't think of a better birthday gift. Join me!
