Mission Statement

Every day, 5,000 kids under the age of 5 die from water-related illnesses. I'm gonna help change that!

My 40th birthday is around the corner. I don’t usually ask for presents from my friends and family, but this year I’ve decided to make an exception. I’m asking all of you to donate to charity: water and give clean water to people who need it.

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 40th a birthday something to remember because we... together... made a difference -- please donate to my campaign!

    Wonderful Banks. Wonderful.

Diseases from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Your donation will help change that.
