Mission Statement

Once upon a time...

I lived in a small village in rural Guyana where the entire community gathered their drinking and washing water from a hole in the ground. This community was generous to host myself and a group of do-gooding youth, but our presence depleted their water – that hole in the ground would not fill up as quickly as we drank its supply. I lived on 1/4 of a bucket of dirty water for three months. My cells remember what I drank. My heart aches for those who can't escape what I left behind. My soul demands change.

I want to live in a world where life is celebrated, community is supported, and love is spread far and wide. A world where everyone has access to flowing, fresh water. Because, water changes everything.

If you want to live in this world too, then I have just the thing for you.

The Great Life Celebration is my dream come true. We gather, to celebrate each other, and life. All profits are donated directly to charity: water. Last year we raised enough money for 100 Kenyans to have clean water -- that's a lot of lives!

Our Great Life Celebration is hosted at the exquisite Banff Springs Hotel in the Cascade Ballroom on Saturday April 26, 2014. If you'd like to stay at the Banff Springs, we have an excellent group rate of $189.00. We'll send you all the registration info once you sign up :: http://www.eventbrite.ca/e/great-life-celebration-tickets-9285730871

The celebration starts at 8:00pm and includes a fun photo booth, awesome music & delightful people. Our festivities come to a close at midnight and we return to life filled with love.

99% of this party is about celebrating you and raising money for charity: water. The last 1% is about my birthday; this is my birthday party. And, my birthday wish is to live in a world where life is celebrated, community is supported, and love is spread far and wide. I'm asking that you come celebrate with me and make a donation to charity: water.

Because.

Life deserves to be celebrated. And. Everyone deserves to live a Great Life. Deep Thanks for helping me celebrate my life and for making life easier for an entire community across the world.

Love,
gem

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.
