My name is Ella and last spring I gave up my 8th birthday for charity: water. I met my $5000 goal which felt great but I just keep thinking there are still so many people getting sick because they don't have clean water--almost a billion.
Sometimes when you're a kid it feels like problems are so big that you can't do anything to make a difference. But it's not true. Little kids can do big things--especially if we work together.
So here's my idea: 100 for Water, at least 100 kids raising at least $100 dollars for charity: water.
Want to help? Make a profile on mycharitywater.org, join 100 for Water and get going!
How do you raise your $100? Get creative. Have a garage sale, a bake sale, a craft fair, babysit, mow lawns, host a fundraising party. Get help from your friends and family.
Let's see what happens when little kids go large for clean water. We might just put charity: water out of business.
All donations made to Ella’s campaign
You fundraised, donated and came to a birthday party -- all to help us raise money for two new drilling rigs in Tigray, Ethiopia. Each rig will go on to drill 80 new wells, and together they'll change 80,000 lives -- every single year for the next 15 years.
100% of the money raised by this campaign is being used to bring clean water to help those in need. In 21 months we’ll be able to show you exactly where the money went and who it helped.
