Yesterday I posted about my Un-Birthday this year. In short I am giving up my birthday to raise money for charity : water. They are working to provide safe drinking water in communities around the world.
This year their September Campaign 2010 (which encourages people to give up their September birthday in support) is helping the Bakaya people in the Central African Republic. They are working in partnership with Jim Hocking who has been living there since 1957.
He looks like Indiana Jones, but is a real hero, making a difference for some people who in his words are at the bottom of the pile. Here’s his story.
You can find my Un-Birthday campaign page here where I have a goal to raise US$250 towards drilling a well in the Central African Republic. We are just over 20% of the way there. Please help if you can. It doesn’t matter how much…every contribution helps. Thanks for your support! I’m so excited about this.
