Hello Loved Ones,

This year for my birthday, I am doing a fundraiser for the Water Project. I was inspired to donate to this cause after hearing the founder of this non-profit organization speak on a podcast. The Water Project invests in local solutions to the water crisis in sub-Saharan Africa. Lack of access to safe water and proper sanitation limits education and food production, it harms health and leads to a cycle of poverty. What I love about this organization is that they work closely with each community to determine what method makes the most sense in terms of providing access to clean and safe water, instead of making assumptions about what is needed. They also provide community education about hygiene and sanitation, employ local community members for each project and undergo monitoring and evaluation after the installation. The best part is that each donation goes directly to the cause and they report back on exactly how the donation has been spent.

The idea that I heard on the podcast was asking people to donate the age you are turning for your birthday in dollars- so that would be $31, but that is just a guiding suggestion. Any amount at all is most appreciated! *Please note that donations are in USD so take this into account*

Thank you all for your presence in my life and for your generosity toward this cause.

Lisa xoxo

How this works

Dirty water impacts health, education, women, and income. Providing a reliable and safe water source allows communities to thrive.

The Water Project provides access to safe and reliable water across sub-Saharan Africa. Together, our support can end the water crisis and restore hope, one community at a time.

The coolest part? We'll all get to see our impact! Every gift is directly linked to a specific water project and community. We'll receive updates including photos and stories, maps and more!

Lives change when communities gain access to clean water. Let's experience it together. Make a donation to my fundraising campaign today!
