Birthday #27: Clean Water for 27

Read Mission Statement

This year I decided to do something a little different for my birthday. I'm fundraising to provide water to 27 people in need for my 27th birthday.

I was introduced to charity: water (https://www.charitywater.org/) this year, and I was immediately taken by this group's story. They are absolutely redefining impactful giving by ensuring 100% of the funds raised go directly to providing clean water.

Their dedication to providing transparency is incredible. I had the chance to see their office last week and was blown away.

I've never been a huge "birthday guy", so I thought this might be a creative way to enjoy it because many of us have no idea what it's like to be truly thirsty. We have plenty of water to drink... let's be honest even waste. Even the water in our toilets is clean!

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.

We have the ability to change this. There are simple solutions like drilled wells, spring protections and BioSand filters that help provide clean water to communities around the world.

Your donations help build these types of projects around the world, and I'm looking for anyone who would like to help.

When the projects we help fund are complete, charity: water will send us photos and GPS coordinates so we can see the exact community we helped.

Please help me celebrate my birthday by donating a gift to others that we so often take for granted.
