Our fifth birthday party: going back to the beginning.

Blog Home | | updates updates

In 2006, founder Scott Harrison hosted a birthday party and collected $20 per person at the door. He used 100% of the money to fund water projects for people in developing countries.

Five years later, it was time we threw it back to those early days of charity: water.

On Sept. 7, we packed The Park to hold our fifth birthday party. Everyone and anyone was welcome — friends flew in, volunteers collected $20 bills at the door and we raised more than $21,000 to support a new drilling rig through this year’s September Campaign. As we did in 2006, we’ll report back to everyone who came on how their $20 has helped serve those in need. They’ll get an email from us when the drilling rig lands in Ethiopia and gets to work!
