Help Rachel 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.
On June 12th 2011, I'm turning 9. I found out that millions of people don't live to see their 5th birthday. And why? Because they didn't have access to clean, safe water so I'm celebrating my birthday like never before. I'm asking from everyone I know to donate to my campaign instead of gifts for my birthday. Every penny of the money raised will go directly to fund freshwater projects in developing nations. Even better, every dollar is "proved" when the projects are complete, and photos and GPS coordinates are posted using Google Earth. My goal is to raise $300 by my birthday, June 12, 2011. Please consider helping me.
Thank you so much!!!

I am in awe of the overwhelming love to take my daughters dream and make it a reality. In the face of unexplainable pain you have provided undeniable hope. Thank you for your generosity!
I know Rachel is smiling!
If you'd like to donate to Rachel's campaign, please go to her new page, http://mycharitywater.org/rachelforrwanda.
Like so many of you, I have visited this page every day since I first heard about Rachel. We cannot let her story fade. We must carry it as a shining example for future generations - as a beacon of light. It saddens me that I cannot donate much to her cause at this point in time. But thankfully, though this campaign ends today, tomorrow brings new opportunities to give. Our most important task is to keep Rachel's story burning bright. What little I can do, I have done: launch a movement of generosity inspired by and dedicated to Rachel called 9th Birthday. I want everyone here to be the first to experience it (and hopefully join the movement). You can see it at www.9thBirthday.org. TO SAMANTHA: Everything you see there is yours. 9th Birthday belongs to you. Please know that we will never forget Rachel or her dream of clean water for all.
Have been following this since July. It's been kind of a "we-are-the-world" past few months. Here's hoping Rachel knows about all this. Her family is in my thoughts.
I am honored to give, on behalf of my husband and myself.
I'm a 42 year old single dad and this story brought tears to my eyes.
100% of the money raised by this campaign is being used to bring clean water to help those in need. In 21 months we’ll be able to show you exactly where the money went and who it helped.
