I'm a lucky guy. On September 8th, I'm turning 25. And unlike many others on this Earth, I've been lucky enough to have access to clean water all my life. So, like last year, I'm sharing my birthday with charity: water to help bring clean drinking water to people in need.
charity: water is also celebrating their fifth birthday, and has already helped 2 million people get access to safe water. But this year, they want to accelerate their impact by purchasing a new drilling rig and the equipment it takes to dig even more wells for villages in need.
So to help, I'm giving up my birthday gifts and asking for $25 (or whatever you can contribute) from everyone I know. 100% of the money will fund the equipment to drill wells for people in northern Ethiopia.
That's not all -- charity: water will mount a GPS device to the drilling rig we fund -- so we'll be able to follow it from village to village once the work gets under way!
Join me -- each drilling rig can help bring clean water to 80 new villages each year, and help 40,000 people get clean water.
All donations made to Sean’s campaign
You fundraised, donated and came to a birthday party -- all to help us raise money for two new drilling rigs in Tigray, Ethiopia. Each rig will go on to drill 80 new wells, and together they'll change 80,000 lives -- every single year for the next 15 years.
100% of the money raised by this campaign is being used to bring clean water to help those in need. In 21 months we’ll be able to show you exactly where the money went and who it helped.
