Rachel Beckwith

Rachel's Christmas for Ethiopia

organized by Rachel Beckwith

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.





Why Rachel Beckwith is fundraising for clean water

I continue to be overwhelmed with gratitude and amazed by the outcome of Rachel's campaigns for clean drinking water. I'm still blown away with all the love and support we've received from around the world. My favorite part of the day is seeing the donations and reading the comments from all of you who have either heard Rachel's story the first time or continue to be inspired by her.

I was fortunate to get to see some of Rachel's wells first hand in Ethiopia last July and can't express how amazing the experience was. Seeing with my own eyes the need for clean water and the impact a well can bring a community has changed the way I view the world.

Please help be apart of giving this beautiful country 100 wells for the holidays! It's a gift that can change a life!

I'm excited to be a part of Ethiopia's future and look forward to continue on this path Rachel has laid before us. Thank you & HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!

    For Rachel. I'm sorry that I can't help you as much as I used to as these are difficult times for me. But if your campaigns continue, I promise that someday I'll make up for it and a lot more. I hope your family and friends like your song. I'm so proud of my friends for wanting to do something nice for them, people they don't even know, sort of like what you did for those kids in Africa. You didn't know them either and yet you wanted to do something to help. That's a very beautiful thing you did, Rachel. It lessons were at a great price, but you taught us all something. God bless you, little Angel.
