Mission Statement

Scott Harrison talked about the power of $5000 and how it can change an entire community of people's lives forever: one source to clean water can mean all the difference.

For my 29th birthday, I'm hoping for a huge goal: I'm hoping to inspire 1000 people to donate just $29 to the cause. $29 for my birthday is the same amount as a fancy bottle of wine, or a few drinks at a bar, or a meal out with friends. So here's what I'm asking: don't buy me a present, but donate a little bit to this big dream of mine instead.

Put another way, I'll need 290 people to donate $100.

I'm not sure if I can do it -- it's a crazy goal. So here's some extra incentive: if 100 people donate $29, I'll pitch in my own $1000 to the cause.

And if there are 1000 people who donate $29 (or we get to $29,000 some other way!!), I'm willing to do something crazy: I'll swim from Alcatraz to San Francisco wearing nothing but my birthday suit.

If you want to donate more than $29, dude, I'm game if you are!

That's right. Water, y'all.

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.
