Rismeyer Family Campaign 2017

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

The statistics are staggering ...844 million people in the world – one in ten – do not have clean water. 2.3 billion people in the world – one in three – do not have a decent toilet. 289,000 children under 5 die each year due to diarrhoeal diseases caused by poor water and sanitation. That's 800 a day, or 1 child every 2 minutes.

But it doesn’t have to be that way! There are simple solutions like drilled wells, spring protections and BioSand filters that can help provide clean water to communities even in the most remote areas.

We started this fundraising campaign to help charity: water build these types of projects around the world, and we are looking for anyone who can help. Please consider purchasing an original piece of artwork--your pet hand painted on an ornament--as you Christmas shop this year. In the past four years, the $5700 we have raised means nearly 200 people on the other side of the world will have safe water to drink. 100% of your money will be used to build clean water projects for people in need, and when they’re complete, charity: water will send us photos and GPS coordinates so we can see the exact community we helped.

Every $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 Christmas shopping can make a world of difference!
