The world is a mess.
People are sick. Starving. Poor. Destitute. Every day I read or hear about it in the news. There are so many people that need help. There are so many needs, so many good causes.
I've had it pretty good in life. I don't want to sit by and just do nothing, so I picked one cause I think everyone can agree on. I'm working to give people something they absolutely cannot do without - the most basic of health needs.
I'm working to give people clean drinking water.
More than a billion people don't have access to safe drinking water. I don't mean that their pipes don't work; I mean that they have to walk hours each day to collect dirty water from stagnant ponds and muddy rivers. And the crazy thing is that for so many people, like for us here, clean water runs in lakes under their homes and village. But they don't have the drilling equipment or the money to reach it.
Just $5,000 builds a well to serve a community of 250 people. My goal is to raise $5000.00 towards a well in the next three months.
There's a lot of need in the world. I'm starting here. Will you join me?
