About the campaign
My birthday is Aug 1. I thought about different ways to celebrate: a) a destination birthday party at a luxury resort in Mexico, the Caribbean, Asia, or South America; b) as a geek and a techy, get tickets to exclusive emerging technology symposia or conferences that showcase the convergence of data, artificial intelligence, robotics, blockchain, and the metaverse; c) visit historical landmarks across the US while staying at exclusive hotels. But I found Charity: Water! I learned that it costs about $40 to bring clean water to one person for their lifetime. So, I AM DONATING MY BIRTHDAY to Charity: Water. 100% of the money will be used to build clean water projects! I invite you - friends, family, colleagues, and acquaintances that would have spent time and money celebrating my birthday with me to 'still' celebrate my birthday with me, even though we are not going to Fiji, Maldives, or gifting me my favorite cologne. Instead, I ask you to repurpose your gifts and donate to "Charity: Water" on my behalf. Let's save lives!!! Watch the Charity: Water video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bdBG5VO01e0 Many of us have no idea what it's like to be thirsty. We have plenty of water to drink -- even the water in our toilets is clean! But many people around the world don’t have that luxury. Every day, about 1,400 children die from diseases caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation. 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. I started this fundraising campaign to help charity: water build these types of projects worldwide, and I'm looking for anyone who can help me. Please donate to my campaign -- anything you can give is a huge help. 100% of the money will be used to build clean water projects!
charity: water is a nonprofit organization bringing clean and safe water to people around the world.
A private group of philanthropists cover our operating costs so that 100% of all public donations can directly fund clean water projects.
