This campaign closed on Dec 27, 2009 and $92,568 is being sent to the field.
Water is life. Water-borne illness is the second highest cause of childhood death in the world. When water is unsafe and sanitation non-existent, water can kill. Access to clean water does more than just save lives, it can turn lives around. Clean water helps break the cycle of poverty.
I have everything I need. All I want for my Birthday is to fund clean water projects for 5 communities.
By helping me reach my goal, you will be giving 250 families what they need for survival and growth.
UPDATE: With tears in my eyes and due to your overwhelming generosity and faith, I have raised my goal to 50,000 dollars. Thank you, for reminding me how good it feels to give and make a difference. I will never forget this Birthday. You have inspired me with your kindness and compassion.
By raising the goal, together we will provide life-giving water for 10 communities, 500 families and 2,500 people. Saying "thank you," doesn't seem to be enough, but just know, my gratitude is endless.
UPDATE 2: I'm overwhelmed and bubbling over with pride. Thanks to all of you, we have reached the $50,000 goal in less than a week. Why stop here? I'm raising our campaign goal to 75,000 dollars. I see this as an unexpected and unique opportunity to do something incredible. We have this moment to make a wide-scale difference.
Generations to come will be transformed by your generosity, compassion and kindness. You are saving lives and I am forever grateful.
We are giving clean water to the developing world one person at a time. By raising the goal, together we will provide life-giving water for 15 communities, 750 families and 3750 people.
