Mission Statement

There is a good chance you found this page via Twitter or, perhaps, a hip-hop video featuring four hopelessly tone-def and rhythm deprived golfers. Either way, thanks for coming. We've had a lot of fun making the Golf Boys videos. We hope you enjoy them, too. One of our goals behind making fun videos on YouTube is to raise awareness and support for a crisis that is anything but fun: the clean water crisis.

Imagine if you had no clean water. Imagine walking 5 hours (almost as long as it takes Ben to play a round of golf) to the nearest river to collect water for your family -- water that’s not even clean. Imagine giving that water to your kids.

While this might seem unimaginable to us, it's a reality for 800 million people in developing countries. Every day, 5,000 kids die from water-related illnesses before they reach their fifth birthday. 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.

We started this fundraising campaign to help charity: water build these types of projects around the world. We're donating 100% of the proceeds from Golf Boys "2.Oh" to charity:water.

Take a look around charitywater.org. Learn about the issue. If you feel moved to do so, you can contribute to our campaign -- anything you can give is a huge help.

100% of the money will be used to build clean water projects, and when they’re complete, charity: water will send us photos and GPS coordinates so we can see the exact community we helped.

Thanks for watching and, more importantly, thanks for helping.

- Ben, Bubba, Rickie and Hunter

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.
