Help Fund a Water Project

Together, we can unlock potential in a developing community by providing clean, safe water.
Hello, I am Charles Calderone and I am the goalie for the Union Thunder Squirt A youth hockey team. I've been thinking about how we use water without thinking about it, yet there are entire communities that cannot even get a glass of water to drink, or clean water to wash their hands or take a shower. I think we should all give to people who are less fortunate than us and make a difference in the world and their lives. So I am dedicating all my saves this season to help raise money to build a clean water well in a village that needs one. My goal is to raise $6,000. I appreciate any and all support in pledges per save. Thanks. I finished the season with 355 saves on the year, and whatever amount of money you have pledged to that will make a big difference in kids' lives. Thank you to Robert Gobel for counting my saves.

Why It Matters

Access to clean, safe water unlocks potential

Did you know nearly 1 billion people don't have safe water to drink?

Together, we can change that. Let's fund a new source of drinking water for those who suffer needlessly without it!

Our gifts will be used to construct or rehabilitate a water project, like a well or sand dam, in Africa. We'll see pictures, GPS coordinates, and updates as they come in from the actual water project we fund so we can celebrate the results along with the community we help.
