Why Aimee Sire is fundraising for clean water

There are 800 million people in the world living without access to clean water. Let's change that!

Well hello again,

Last year I asked family and friends to donate to charity:water instead of getting me presents for my birthday. I was overwhelmed with everyone’s generosity and inspired to celebrate my 26th birthday the same way.

Did you know that almost a billion people on the planet don’t have access to clean drinking water? Every 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.

I'm asking for my age in dollars from everyone I know. Every penny of the money raised will directly fund clean water projects in developing countries. Even better, charity: water will show us exactly which projects we funded once they've been fully completed (which takes about 18 months). That means we'll know the locations and names of the communities we helped.

100% of every dollar you donate to my birthday campaign will be used to build clean water projects in developing countries. charity: water funds their operating costs separately through a group of private donors, so 100% of all public donations will go directly to people in need.

Please donate to my campaign, and make this the best birthday ever!
