For My Birthday

I'll be 31 this year. And instead of selfishly asking for gifts, I'm taking the leap toward something much more satisfying. This September 4th, I want to be the one giving the gifts (with your help of course).

If you had previously thought about giving me a gift this year, please don't. Instead, make a generous donation to this campaign to help reach our modest goal and save some lives.

More details on the initiative can be found below.

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, 1,400 kids die from water-related illnesses before they reach their fifth birthday. 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.

Go here to donate.
