663 million people in this world do not have access to clean water. Unsanitary water causes many diseases that kill hundreds of people, especially children. Due to this, 4100 children under 5 die every day. It's true! In fact, in the time it has taken you to read this far (about 21 seconds), somewhere in this world, a parent has lost their child to a water related disease. It's hard to even contemplate living in that horrific reality, knowing that your loved ones will most likely die soon, just because you live somewhere there is no access to life's basic need: water. But, I haven't started this campaign just to give you some depressing statistics. This fundraiser's purpose is to get you motivated and ready to make a difference. If we reach our goal for this campaign: $1,000, we will have transformed 33 lives, and touched many, many more (although I secretly hope we will raise more than that). Our plea is for you to sacrifice something small like eating out or getting new clothes and instead spend that money here, towards transforming lives. Trust me, right now, your wants may seem more appealing, but once we finish our campaign on New Year's Eve, and you are able to see photos that show the difference your donation (which, by the way, goes 100% towards clean water, not towards funding charity:water) made in 2020, you will feel good about humanity. I promise.

Diseases from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Your donation will help change that.
100% of the money raised by this campaign is being used to bring clean water to help those in need. In 21 months we’ll be able to show you exactly where the money went and who it helped.
