Mission Statement

On December 11, I'm turning 38.

My needs are completely met.

But then I found out that millions of people have very significant needs. In fact, many of them won't live to see their fifth birthdays. And why? Because they don't have access to clean, safe water.

So I'm celebrating my birthday like never before.

I'm asking for $10,000 from everyone I know -- and every penny of the money raised will go directly to fund clean water projects in developing nations. Even better, charity: water will show us exactly which projects we funded once they've been fully completed (which takes about 18 months). That means we'll be able to see the communities we've helped!

Please join me to make this birthday count.

    Most of us have so much, it's a joy to give to others who are less fortunate.

Thank you for helping us fund 100 wells in Ethiopia. Soon, 100 communities will be drinking clean and safe water from charity: water wells.
