Mission Statement

I'm climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro--the highest mountain in Africa, at 19,340 feet (5895 meters). One thing I've noticed while hiking for practice is that you're *always thinking about water*. How much do you need to carry? Do you have enough water to last until you can refill your bottles?

A lot of people take water for granted. You turn on the tap and there it is. But that's not what it's like for everyone. They have to think about water all the time. Walking miles to get it. Carrying it. Worrying how safe the water is.

45,000 people die each day from waterborne illnesses. When you give, 100% of all donations go directly to water projects, and each donation is marked using Google Earth when projects are complete.

Please join me and give someone clean water. Click "Donate to my campaign" and fill out the short form. You'll feel great, and it will make a huge difference for the people you help.

    Glad for the opportunity to give. Why do you want to know my birthday and require it or I can't move forward? Feels like an invasion with info you honestly do not need. So I made one up.

    Well done Matt!

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.
