“I want to donate my birthday.”
This is what Emily told me when talking about her 30th birthday. She had no idea that 20 of her best friends and family were gathering together to celebrate her and she has no idea that we created this fundraiser in her name. She was just expressing a want to help others: textbook Emily.
Since discovering this organization, it’s been the only thing she has talked about. In honor of her 30th birthday, let’s come together and help people obtain clean drinking water- it would mean the world to Emily if we did.
Below is some more information about this incredible organization and cause:
Many of us have no idea what it's like to be thirsty. We have plenty of water to drink -- even the water in our toilets is clean!
But many people around the world don’t have that luxury. Every day, about 1,400 children die from diseases caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are simple solutions like drilled wells, spring protections and BioSand filters that help provide clean water to communities around the world.
100% of the money will be used to build clean water projects, and when they’re complete, charity: water will send us photos and GPS coordinates so we can see the exact community we helped.
Thank you for being here and being part of this.
