charity:water is a very cool organization that has an amazing purpose and I'm proud to have met its founder, Scott Harrison, in the past year. As I turn the big 4-0 on June 21, 2011, I wanted to dream big and make an impact. I have a wonderful husband, Mike, five amazing, healthy kids, the best parents and family and a terrific group of colleagues -- I really can't want or ask for anything more. So, I am forgoing birthday gifts and instead encouraging my loved ones and friends to help me mark this occasion with something that will help a lot of people. If every person I knew gave at least $40 in honor of my 40th, we could provide several wells to villages in Africa to reach a lot of people (including countless children) who are dying right now -- just because they don't have access to clean water. Thanks for being my friends and supporters. I'm a lucky girl and appreciate you all so much!
