It’s my birthday! Oh, It’s my birthday! I’m gonna party like it’s my birthday!
In honor of my 44th year on this planet, I want to do something epic. While birthday prezzzies are always tre’ nice (especially the massage gift certificates!), it’s always more fun to give than to get. And my heart is so warmed up over this.
I met charity:water’s CEO, Scott Harrison, at the World Domination Summit last summer. I was in tears when he presented the water crisis happening on our planet. I felt like I couldn’t breathe; I was in total shock seeing kids, moms, families trekking far to get dirty, contaminated water. They are sick, weak, and even die from not having clean water to drink and cook with.
I knew then and there that when Scott asked for us to pledge our birthdays to help, I just had to join in.
Water is a basic need we take for granted. Water is essential for life.
A lot of us complain that we have to drink water or don’t like the taste of it. I get so upset (rather pretty pissed off) when I hear how it’s a pain to drink water.
Watching those suffer because they don’t even have access to clean water makes my soul sink.
Water is the beginning of everything. Education, work, health, and overall safety. If you aren’t hydrated, you can‘t think, function, grow.
Almost a billion people on the planet don’t have access to clean drinking water. Every day, 5,000 kids die from water-related illnesses before they reach their fifth birthday.
These statistics are mind-blowing.
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.
Watch this short 2 minute vid for more info on charity:water:
I’m asking for your help. Can you join me in raising money for charity:water so we can give 30 people clean water?
100% of every dollar you donate to my birthday campaign will be used to build clean water projects in developing countries. charity: water funds their operating costs separately through a group of private donors, so 100% of all public donations will go directly to people in need. Once the wells are complete, pictures and GPS are given so we can see who we helped. Love that.
Anything you wish to give…$5, $10, $20… will help tremendously. Will you donate to my campaign and make this the best birthday ever?
