Maya's Water Walk

organized by Maya Kirschner

Help Maya give the gift of clean water. 100% of every donation raised will fund charity: water's work providing access to clean water projects around the world.





Why Maya Kirschner is fundraising for clean water

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.

    Actually, I ran 2 campaigns and have 2 checks to mail in. We raised close to $1800 and over 50 people will get clean water. You are amazing!

    By the way, Charity water makes it really easy to run a campaign. If you have a special event, like a birthday or an anniversary. Consider running a campaign and asking people to donate in honor of your special event.

    But if you do nothing further, that's okay. 50 people have benefited from your generosity!

    I would like to thank you so much for your contribution to my Water Walk Campaign. When I started preparing for this part of my Bat Mitzvah, I had no idea that it would be possible to make a difference like this. This was a really important effort and thanks to your help, my campaign raised $1208. I am so grateful that you joined me in helping to bring clean water to over 40 people. We are building a better world, drop by drop!
