Help Fund a Water Project

Together, we can unlock potential in a developing community by providing clean, safe water.

So, it's my 21st birthday!! Just as we did last year, I'm hoping we can work together to raise money that will be used to better the lives of some beautiful, wonderful people. I'd love to celebrate this crazy year of my life by sharing a drink with as many people as possible --even those half way across the world! I hope you will team with me in bringing clean water to those without. Bringing clean water means a chance at schooling, a chance at working, a chance at creating a better life, a chance at actually LIVING. We can do this, guys!! Let's send love over to Africa! :)

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.

Who's Helping?

Will You Join Us in Giving Clean, Safe Water?
