This campaign closed on Sep 30, 2015 Laura Michaud brought clean water to Fambauone.
There are 748 million people in the world living without access to clean water. Let's change that!
My birthday is around the corner. I don't usually ask for presents, but this year I've decided to make an exception. I'm asking all my friends and family to donate to charity: water and give clean water to people who need it, instead of giving me gifts.
Did you know that almost a billion people on the planet don't have access to clean drinking water? Every day, 1,400 kids die from water-related illnesses before they reach their fifth birthday. But it doesn't have to be that way. There are simple solutions like drilled wells, spring protections and BioSand filters that help provide clean water to communities around the world.
100% of every dollar you donate to my birthday campaign will be used to build clean water projects in developing countries. charity: water funds their operating costs separately through a group of private donors, so 100% of all public donations will go directly to people in need.
Help me make this birthday my best ever -- donate to my campaign!
