This year for my 44th birthday I am asking everyone I know to donate to Charity Water on my behalf. Donate Now. Last year I gave flowers to a few of the women in my community that have had a huge impact on my life; it was tremendous fun to bring them something.
This year, I want to do the same thing for people who I will never meet - people who don't have the most basic thing on earth - clean drinking water. Join me! It is great to give and Charity:Water has proven to me that they are doing what they say they are doing - they are making it easier for millions to have clean water. What a great way to celebrate a birthday!
charity: water is a non-profit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations.
It's hard not to think about water today. In the western world, we face growing concerns about our stewardship of the world's most precious resource. There's talk of shortages, evidence of reservoirs and aquifers drying up, and of course, plenty of people who simply don't care.
But forget about us.
Most of us have never really been thirsty. We've never had to leave our houses and walk five miles to fetch water. We simply turn on the tap, and water comes out. Clean. Yet there are 800 million people on the planet who don't have clean water.
It's hard to imagine what 800 million people looks like really, but one in nine might be easier. One in nine people in our world doesn't have access to the most basic of human needs. Something we can't imagine going 12 hours without.
Now, lets do something about that! I'm raising money as part of the Camp Mighty team to make a bigger impact for our efforts! Come on! Give a gift that lasts a lifetime! Clean water!
