Mission Statement

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.

I started this fundraising campaign to help charity: water build these types of projects around the world, and I'm looking for anyone who can help me.

Please donate to my campaign -- anything you can give is a huge help.

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.

    I drink water all day, everyday -- especially before and after a run -- because I was fortunate enough to be born in America. There is nothing special about me. I was just lucky. The right thing to do as a human being is to help those who weren't as lucky with the cards they were dealt. Everyone should be able to drink clean water. Lack of access to clean water directly limits people from reaching their full potential, so it is lacking a basic freedom. Please open your heart and use your freedom to provide freedom to those who are deprived of it.

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.
