Mission Statement

I have thought a lot over the years about the Saviors words, "For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me."

This year for my 33rd birthday I've decided to do just that. Instead of asking for gifts, I'm asking for $33 or more from everyone to build freshwater wells for people in developing nations.

A billion people in the world are living without clean water. Millions contract deadly diseases from contaminated water. 45,000 people will die this week alone. The lucky ones won't, but still walk hours each day to get dirty water to give to their families.

My birthday wish this year is not for more gifts; it's to give clean and safe drinking water to some of the billion living without it.

I have been very impressed by the charity: water organization. Charity: water gives 100% of all donations directly to water project costs, and each donation is "proved" and tracked to the village it helped when projects are complete.

Thank you for joining me in taking in a stranger, in giving water to the thirsty, in visiting the sick.

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.
