Rismeyer 2020 Campaign

organized by Wendy Rismeyer

Help Wendy 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 Wendy Rismeyer is fundraising for clean water

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 785 million people around the world don’t have that luxury. And, every day, about 1,400 children die from diseases caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation. 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 in the poorest parts of this world.

I started this fundraising campaign to help charity: water build these types of projects, and I'm looking for anyone who can help me. Please consider purchasing an original piece of artwork--your pet hand painted on an ornament. In the past seven years, the $9300 raised means more than 300 people on the other side of this earth will have safe water to drink. One Hundred Percent of your money will be used to build clean water projects for people in need, and when they’re completed, charity: water will send us photos and GPS coordinates so we can see the exact community we've helped.

Each $20 ornament sold means we are one step closer to everyone in world experiencing what we so often take for granted, the health and dignity from being able to consume clean, safe water. Your holiday shopping can make a world of difference!
