This campaign closed on Mar 12, 2010 DigiRedo New Media in Motion brought clean water to Mesanu and 1 other project.
Starting a company in the midst of one of the worst recessions in recent history is daunting. But it is not as daunting as drinking a glass of water... That is, if you are one of the billion people who do not have access to clean and safe drinking water. It really puts things into perspective when you realize that more people die from drinking a cup unsafe water than all the wars put together. Hence, we at DigiRedo want to do our part to help eradicate this horrible problem by contributing to Charity: Water...
Charity: water is a non-profit organization which gives people the opportunity to start their own fundraising campaigns to help bring clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. Unique to Charity: Water and most appropriate for DigiRedo is the role that new media plays in helping to raise funds. You can set up your own website, integrate with Facebook, Twitter and even build a community. The use of New Media results in transparency, knowing that all Euros or Dollars reach their destination. No huge overhead. Moreover, through New Media, contributors can track their gifts to the point of expenditure.
So, it is time for action. Our DigiRedo campaign is called Bytes for Water and you can contribute yourself by visiting our campaign website at: mycharitywater.org/bytesforwater. In order to build one well for clean water, $5,000 is required. And with one well, we can provide one village of more than 250 people with clean water. For 20 years. Every $20 gives one person clean water for the next 20 years.
We have already kicked-off our campaign by contributing 20% of the target amount. By doing so, we of course hope that we are leading by example.
