Hi Travelers - It's Paul Drecksler from www.TravelisLife.org and I've started a campaign with charity: water - my favorite nonprofit organization that is doing a tremendous job providing clean drinking water to people all over the world.
The goal of this campaign is to raise 10 cents per Travel is Life follower. Right now the Facebook page (https://facebook.com/travelislifeorg) sits at 18,678 followers, which means our goal is to raise $1867.80.
With the understanding that not everyone who follows Travel is Life can donate, I hope that you can sponsor a few followers by donating on their behalf. I've covered the first 1,000 followers with a $100 donation to get things started.
If you can't donate, that's okay! Perhaps share this campaign and the corresponding video instead to help spread the word.
The reason I love charity: water, aside from their philanthropic objective, is because of their business model. 100% of public donations go towards funding actual projects that provide clean drinking water to people around the world. This is contrary to many other nonprofit organizations that spend a sizeable chunk of each donation on overhead.
Charity: water, on the other hand, raises money to cover overhead from a private group of wealthy benefactors so that all of our public donations can go straight to the projects themselves. They even send photos and GPS coordinates after the project is completed so we can see the exact community we helped.
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 -- which charity: water build through the help of our donations.
Thanks for being a part of the Travel is Life Community and for your help with this campaign.

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.
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.
