This campaign closed on Sep 30, 2013 Felix Kjellberg brought clean water to Raro and 20 other projects.
Hey and thanks for visiting my Charity: Water campaign. Hitting 10,000,000 subscribers means so much to me. In honor of that, I wanted to find something really cool that we could all do to celebrate, and I can't think of any better way to do that than working together to raise money for this awesome cause.
100% of everything we raise will directly fund water projects. And when those projects are finished, charity: water will send each person who donates proof in pictures and GPS coordinates, so we can see the actual people and communities we all helped out.
My goal is to have 10,000 bros donate and to raise at least $250,000. I know that this is a HUGE goal, but that if everyone pitches in even a tiny bit, I really think we can reach it. This will ensure that 12,500 people have clean drinking water for the first time.
I will be donating a dollar for every 500 views my video announcing this campaign gets up to $10,000. My YouTube network, Polaris will be matching every dollar I give too.
Twitch will also be donating up to $5,000 to the campaign. Make sure to check out our charity: water livestreams at twitch.tv/pewdiepie
A few very generous companies have also volunteered to sponsor the campaign and give away some awesome prizes to people that donate:
- The first 250 people to donate $20 dollars (drinking water for 1 person) will get a free PewDiePie "Happy Wheels" postcard
-The first 100 people to donate $50 (drinking water for 2.5 people) will get a free PewDiePie shirt and postcard from www.rodeoarcade.com
- The first 10 people to donate $1,000 (drinking water for 50 people) will get signed Razer gaming headphones, and a package of awesome merchandise
- If you can just give a few dollars that's cool too - every bit helps. Anyone who donates more than 5 dollars will get put in a raffle to win a special meet and greet. We will do it in person if possible. If not, we'll figure out the best way to do it virtually. Either way, I am excited to meet you!
PS. A special thanks to my friends and sponsors:
