Mission Statement

What would you do for clean water? For the 703 million people living without it, the answer is anything. And they do: they walk miles every day, in treacherous conditions and extreme heat, just to access water that makes them sick — or worse.

That’s why I’m doing this fundraiser. charity: water challenged me to do something to help those who would do anything for water that’s safe to drink.

Please consider purchasing an original piece of artwork--your pet hand painted on an ornament. In the past ten years, the $11K+ raised means more than 350 people on the other side of this earth will have safe water to drink. One Hundred Percent of your money will be used to build clean water projects for people in need, and when they’re completed, charity: water will send us photos and GPS coordinates so we can see the exact community we've helped.

Each $20 ornament sold means we are one step closer to everyone in world experiencing what we so often take for granted, the health and dignity from being able to consume clean, safe water. Your holiday shopping can make a world of difference!
