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.
We started this fundraising campaign to help charity: water build these types of projects around the world, and we need your help.
Please donate to our 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.
This campaign closed on Dec 31, 2013 and the money is being sent to the field. Still want to donate? You're in luck! The Smile Generation has a new campaign.Donate To The New CampaignSee What Happens Next
Diseases from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. That is why the Smile Generation has partnered with charity: water to build 100 wells in Ethiopia. Your donation can help change lives.
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.
