Sunday we are celebrating the 40th birthday of the most extraordinary person we know...a loving mom and my beautiful wife Cecille. From working at the hospital bedside to teaching in the yoga studio, her heart, strength, and intelligence has inspired all of us to make this world a better place. In lieu of gifts, Andrew, Brandon, and I wanted to continue her theme of helping others by starting this fundraising campaign to help families across the world get access to clean water. We are each donating $40 to Charity: Water in celebration of her 40th birthday.
Here’s more about this charity:
Many of us have no idea what it's like to be thirsty. We have plenty of water to drink -- even the water in our toilets is clean!
But many people around the world don’t have that luxury. Every day, about 1,400 children die from diseases caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are simple solutions like drilled wells, spring protections and BioSand filters that help provide clean water to communities around the world.
I started this fundraising campaign to help charity: water build these types of projects around the world, and I'm looking for anyone who can help me.
Please donate to my campaign -- anything you can give is a huge help.
100% of the money will be used to build clean water projects, and when they’re complete, charity: water will send us photos and GPS coordinates so we can see the exact community we helped.

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.
