Mission Statement

On April 23, I'm turning 39.

Just like last year, I am donating my birthday to charity: water.

I have never really been thirsty. I've never had to leave my apartment and walk five miles to fetch water. I simply turn on the tap, and water comes out. Clean.

Yet there are 800 million people on the planet who don't have clean water. That's a big problem. But it's a problem with a solution. And charity: water is our best hope.

I invite you to imagine that you and your family were in their shoes. Carry 80 pounds of water in yellow fuel cans for miles and miles. Dig with your children in sand for water. Line up at a well and wait eight hours for a turn.

Now, join me in doing something. Make a decision to help.

I'm asking for $39, $390 or $3900 from everyone I know -- and every penny of the money raised will go directly to fund clean water projects in developing nations.

Even better, charity: water will show us exactly which projects we funded once they've been fully completed. That means we'll be able to see the communities we've helped!

My goal is to raise over $30,000 by my birthday, April 23. And everyone who donates $1000 or more will get an invite to a very special event Kass and I are throwing in September at our place that you don't want to miss.

Please join me to make this birthday count.

Thanks!

MML

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.
