Mission Statement

I guess I'm tired of my birthdays always being about stuff.

I really don't need any more stuff. And to be honest, I hardly even remember what I got last year.

So this year, I'm giving my birthday up.

I'm turning 34 years old and instead of asking for gifts, I'm asking for my friends to gives some money. It's not going to me, though. All of the money raised is going to build freshwater projects for people in developing countries.

Almost a billion people in the world are living without clean water -- but how much are they really living? Millions contract deadly diseases from contaminated water. 30,000 people will die this week alone. The lucky ones won't, but still have to walk hours each day to get dirty water for their families.

The best part: 100% of all donations go directly toward water projects. And about 18 months after this campaign ends, charity: water will show us where and how every dollar we raised ended up helping in the field. We'll see GPS coordinates, photos and more details about the communities we've impacted.

Please join me.

-Kevin

You fundraised, donated and came to a birthday party -- all to help us raise money for two new drilling rigs in Tigray, Ethiopia. Each rig will go on to drill 80 new wells, and together they'll change 80,000 lives -- every single year for the next 15 years.
