Mission Statement

Help Jack and Finn celebrate their 22nd birthday by donating their age in dollars to support clean water projects.

Hello! Today Jack and myself are launching a campaign to celebrate our 22nd birthday, it's not until May 13th, but we thought we'd get started ahead of time. We had the opportunity to meet Scott Harrison earlier this year who runs Charity:Water and learn more about the work they're doing. It blew my mind that in 2015 there are still millions of kids around the world don't live to see their fifth birthday because they don't have access to clean, safe drinking water. We can help change that.

I'm asking for my age in dollars from everyone I know. Every penny of the money raised will directly fund clean water projects in developing countries. Even better, charity: water will show us exactly which projects we funded once they've been fully completed (which takes about 21 months). That means we'll know the locations and names of the communities we helped.

Help me reach my goal. Please donate to my birthday campaign!

    Congratulations on reaching your goal!

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.
