Why Allen Wong is fundraising for clean water

Be a hero on my birthday and bring clean water to the 800 million people who are living without access to it.

Hi, Friends! About a year ago, we donated $1,160.08 to the Red Cross Hurricane Sandy relief fund after I offered eBooks and signed copies of my first print Lifehacked book for any donation amount of your choosing.

This year I am dedicating my birthday to help charity: water build clean water projects around the world. Let's save some lives and make a difference. Let's raise $1,000 (or more!) together and provide clean water for a whole lot of people.

Each day, 5,000 kids die from water-related illnesses before they reach their fifth birthday. 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.

According to research from the University of East Anglia, providing free drinking water in schools could be key to helping people in developing countries lift themselves out of poverty. So let's stop talking about how bad poverty is in different countries, and actually help get them out of it.

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.

As an incentive, I gave away free copies of my Lifehacked book to anyone who donated.

    Happy Belated Birthday Allen! I am running a similar campaign for my birthday, which is on Thursday (March 27th)! Except my goal is a little higher ($2,200 since I'm turning 22). I'm a long time follower, and I would be so grateful if you could share my campaign! It is a wonderful thing to see people rise up and put their hard earned money towards helping others :)
