This campaign closed on Jun 30, 2016 Gemma Stone brought clean water to Lapenyanga West.
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 generously hosted 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.
99% of this party is about celebrating life and raising money for charity: water.
The last 1% is about my birthday; this is my birthday party.
My birthday wish is to live in a world where life is celebrated, community is supported, and love is spread far and wide.
I am inviting you to come and celebrate with me and make a donation to charity: water.
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.
Keeping adding love.
PS - if you're around Calgary, Alberta on May 12th, come hang out in a historic mansion for the life Great Life Celebration - https://gemmastone.org/great-life-celebration/
