Mission Statement

Watch the story behind 100 for Water: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vE0bBbmiuRY

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.

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.
