Mission Statement

This year, I'm giving my birthday up. This year I want to make a difference.

I'm turning 23 years old, and instead of asking for gifts, I'm asking for $23 or more (or less, even just $5 because every donation counts!) from everyone I know. It's not going to me, though. All of it is going to build freshwater wells for people in developing countries. Charity:Water is a charity I've been donating to and following posts and videos from for over 3 years now.

I have some of the most amazing friends and family, and I want you guys to show the world that to.

A billion people in the world are living without clean water - but how much are they really living? Millions contract deadly diseases from contaminated water. 45,000 people will die this week alone :( ! The lucky ones won't, but still walk hours each day to get dirty water to give to their families.

My birthday wish this year is not for more gifts I don't need; it's to give clean and safe drinking water to some of the billion living without it. I want to make my birthday matter this year. If we can reach $2300 for my 23rd birthday, we'll provide clean drinking water for over 100 people!

Please join me.

please note: here's what's awesome, because of how charity:water works, 100% of our donations go directly to water projects costs, and each donation is "proved" and tracked to the village it helped when projects are complete.

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.
