Walking for Water

I'm walking across the United States of America. In hopes to bring some light to one of the world's problems.

It's going to require training, determination, endurance, strength and a whole lot of moral support. Honestly, I'm not all that sure I can handle it.

But when I think of the millions of women and children who have to walk miles each day to retrieve water for their families, I think of how most of that hard-earned water isn't even clean and can infect people with deadly diseases. I think about how 42,000 people die every week from waterborne illnesses.

And then... yes. I will move forward. I can do it. But I need your help.

My goal is to raise $20,000 for water projects. Because of charity: water's unique model, 100% of all donations go directly to water projects, and each donation is "proved" using Google Earth when projects are complete.

I've never done anything like this before. And I promise to do it without complaining. After all, I'll have fresh water to keep me going. That's more than millions around the world can ask for.

Please join me in helping them.
