Mission Statement

Many of us have no idea what its like to be thirsty.

Here in the United States, we use about 400 billions gallons of water each day. That means the average family of four is responsible for about 400 gallons per day.

But imagine if you had no clean water. Imagine sweating and straining to haul contaminated water back to your family. Imagine suffering from preventable things like diarrhea, parasites or leeches. Unbelievably, 80% of all diseases in the world are caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation.

Here we thought we were doing the world a favor by turning off the tap when we brushed our teeth.

We are a group of elementary school kids in Charlottesville, Virginia. After learning more about how Charity:Water works, we know we can make a dent in the global water crisis. We started a four-part campaign last Earth Day (2010) and by April 22, 2011 we're going to raise $5,000 to build a clean water well for people who need one.

We're looking for anyone who can help us!

Together, we've got an opportunity to provide clean water for those in need. And the great thing about donating to charity: water is that 100% of donations go directly to the water projects, and well get to see exactly what projects our dollars funded.

Please join us. Thank you!

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.
