Help One Million 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 One Million Goal is fundraising for clean water

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

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, 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.

My time flying around the world as a Marine aviator has given me the opportunity to witness how some of the worlds poorest people are trying to survive. A few years ago a good friend educated me on one of the most dire situations facing the world is a lack of clean drinking water. The numbers are staggering and they continue to grow.

It has become a personal mission of mine to get involved and to help make a positive difference with the world's lack of clean drinking water. I have made an ambitious personal goal to help bring water to 1 million people during my lifetime. I plan to devote the majority of my charitable donations of time, money and energy to this goal but to achieve it I will need the help of many others.

Just as the journey of a thousand miles begins with the one step; the journey to bring water to 1 million people begins with the first dollar donated and the first campaign launched. This campaign is my first step to inspire the help of others-the help from YOU.

Please donate to this campaign -- ANYTHING you can give is a HUGE help. Please share this campaign with any friends that may be interested. Every small effort you and I contribute together will make a drastic difference in the life of a man, woman or child without water.

100% of the money donated during this campaign 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.

I am taking the first step towards a major life goal- to bring water to 1 million of the nearly 800 million people in the world who are suffering from a lack of clean drinking water. Please help me by contributing to my first campaign and together we can help change the lives of people in need.

Together we can do a lot to change the world. Together we can change the future for many others. Together, there is no limit to what we might accomplish in making the world a better place; but creating that better place has to start by focusing on the world’s most basic need- water.

Please make a contribution to this vital cause. If you cannot contribute today, you can help the campaign but spreading the word. To help, you can ‘like’ the campaign page on Facebook or forward this page to all your friends and family.

Just one moment of your time can chance the life of someone in need forever.

With sincere gratitude,


“You have not lived today until you have done something for someone
who can never repay you.”
