Why The Sanders is fundraising for clean water

Every day, 1,400 kids under the age of 5 die from water-related illnesses. Let's help change that!

This is a big year for us. Anna turned one on January 30! I'm not so sure she noticed, but we certainly did. Besides that Ben turns 40 on March 2! And Heather turns 39 on March 4. As a family, we’re taking this opportunity to raise money for a nonprofit we admire — charity: water.

Heather has been writing about charity: water’s work on her blog, howtoreachpeople.com. She interviewed charity water’s content strategist, Tyler Riewer, about its projects and how it tells stories online. You can read about that on her blog. But, in short, charity: water does great work helping communities develop sources of clean water.

Every day, 1,400 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.

Please donate to our campaign. We’d be deeply grateful for anything you want to give.

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.
