This campaign closed on Aug 15, 2013 Courtney Carver brought clean water to Gako (Chez Gahongayire).
While we've exceeded our goal of $4400, there is still work to be done and time to give clean water to more people.
Did you know that almost a billion people on the planet don’t have access to clean drinking water? 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.
100% of every dollar you donate to my birthday campaign will be used to build clean water projects in developing countries. charity: water funds their operating costs separately through a group of private donors, so 100% of all public donations will go directly to people in need.
Help me make this birthday my best ever -- donate to my campaign!
