Mission Statement

Hey jerks, every day, 5,000 kids under the age of 5 die from water-related illnesses. Let's help fix that!

My birthday is almost here. And I don’t have too many left. That said, I’ve been lucky enough that I’ve always had the basics shit human beings need to make it to another day. I’ve never lacked for shelter, food, or water. I’m guessing the vast majority of you haven’t either. Which is awesome. And we want everybody to feel just as awesome.

Did you know that almost a billion people on the planet don't have access to clean drinking water? Every day, 5,000 kids die from water-related illnesses before they reach their fifth birthday. Which is bullshit. There are simple solutions like drilled wells, spring protections and BioSand filters that help provide clean water to communities around the world.

And the good people at charity: water are helping to make those solutions happen.

Give what you can. Which is more than you think. I’ll pay for my own birthday drinks this year.

(Thanks to my man @darth for the big image.)

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.
