Why Water?

It’s my birthday in September and this year I’m giving it up to raise money for water. Specifically, the money is donated to charity : water. 100% of it will be used to drill wells in Central African Republic to provide clean drinking water.

Why am I so passionate about Water?

  • Because it’s fundamental to life
  • Because almost 1 billion people don’t have access to clean, safe drinking water
  • Because 4500 kids die daily from diseases related to water quality
  • Because dirty water and lack of sanitation kills more people than war
  • Because it’s the most valuable resource on the planet
  • Because it’s an issue of poverty
  • Because the only reason I have clean water is because I was born into privilege
  • Because of that privilege I am able to share what I have
  • Because safe water is a human right
  • Because I can make a difference
  • Because providing clean water actually saves lives

I would love it if you could join with me and together we can make an even bigger difference. My goal is to raise US$250 by the 30th September when the campaign ends. Check out my progress and donate here. (Please note the page uses US dollars)

  1. ‘Because safe water is a human right’ – never a truer word was said. Scary how the world spends so much chasing oil and diamonds while undervaluing and destroying our most essential resource. I commend your campaign and wish you luck on your journey. Oh, and Happy Sits Saturday sharefest :-)
