Rachel’s Mom Visits Ethiopia

Samantha, Rachel’s mother, in Ethiopia along with Rachel’s grandfather, Richard

Exactly a year ago today, nine-year-old Rachel Beckwith was killed in a tragic car accident on highway I-90 near Seattle, Washington. After her death, thousands of people all around the world started donating to her mycharity: water fundraising page, and over the course of a month, raised over $1.2 million in Rachel’s honor. That money is now helping 60,000 people get access to clean water.

Rachel’s mom, Samantha, and her grandparents, Richard and Roseanne, are in Ethiopia with charity: water today, meeting some of the people Rachel helped. We’ve documented the entire day on video so we can share it with all of you. We’re busy working on it right now, and we’ll post it here on Tuesday.

Please check back on the blog soon, or sign up on our email list, so we can send the video straight to your inbox.
