I decided to choose the theme of fairy tale (not because I was randomly coerced to picking a theme while eating dinner at a Korean restaurant), but because we live in a fairy tale every day. There are people all over the world who fight to survive because they do not have access to every day things that was probably take for granted, like shelter, nutritious food, and clean water.
As I turn 25, God is showing me to be more selfless and to reach out to bless His people. He's always placed a burden for the oppressed and poor, and He's placed in my heart to "build a well" these past few weeks. Although I'm not sure exactly what this means, I'll take it literally. Instead of presents and nice meals this year, please partner with me to build a well for people through The Water Project (http://thewaterproject.org/).
With each well, it will provide education for children, safe water to drink, access to food, and hopefully break the cycle of poverty. The goal is to raise $5000 to sponsor a well project. Since there seems to be a fee for each credit card transaction, you may give me the money (cash, check, Venmo) and I'll donate it all at the end. If we exceed the $5000, I'll put the money in the $12,000 project and pay the difference.
Jesus said, "but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life." - John 4:14

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.
