For my birthday this year, I want to do something different. Just take the money that you would normally use to buy me a drink and donate it to the water project, so those in need can get a drink so many of us take for granted.Originally inspired by Rachel, you can read about her story here http://www.nytimes.com/2011/08/11/opinion/rachels-last-fund-raiser.html?_r=0 or watch this video. It is well-made and does a good job of capturing Rachel's impact http://vimeo.com/46300983 And, if it tickles your fancy, donate in $9 increments. That's what Rachel asked for from her friends. Thank you my dear friend!

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.
The Water Project, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization unlocking human potential by providing clean, safe water to communities around the world who suffer needlessly without.
Working with local partners in countries like Kenya, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, and Uganda, we build long lasting water projects that are organized, owned and managed by the communities receiving them.
Together, with our partners we identify, implement, report on and follow up on every project. Then we share the whole story with you to inspire confidence in the work being done and the impact it has.
