Right now, 100% of all one-time donations go to our COVID-19 Relief Fund.
This campaign closed on Nov 1, 2010 Jessica Stroup brought clean water to Girachomay.
On Oct. 23, 2010 I will be turning 24!! Yes, it's true, 24 isn't as exciting as say, 21 or 40, but this year I plan on celebrating my birthday more than any year before.
Why? Because, during June, I traveled to Ethiopia with Charity:Water to see first hand what this inspiring group is doing to change the world. Did you know there are over a BILLION people without clean water, right now? Yeah, it seems hard to grasp, but try to imagine it... 45,000 people will die this year alone from water born diseases and lack of access to fresh water. Here's the good news- we can do something about it...
I'm giving up my birthday and asking for anyone, who has a cent to spare, to donate to this worthy cause. 100% of money you give will go directly to funding wells in developing countries. You will be able to track where the money goes by gps once the well has been complete!
My goal is to reach $10,000 by Nov. 1, 2010. This will fund two wells serving atleast 500 people for 20 years. Amazing numbers, right? Help me celebrate my birthday by giving anything you can.. every little bit counts. Once the wells are complete, I'll travel to the sites and make a video for you to see the difference your contributions have made.

Thank you, Jess xx
