Help Fund a Water Project

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

Project opened 7/5/2014 (please view the notices below the read more section as well)

Donations will be accepted until September 1st. Everyday through his hard work Kim Jongdae inspires us with his voice; he is always there but we can't be there for him in return. As international fans, there usually isn't much we can do show our presence and support hence the start of this simple yet meaningful project. Knowing how kind he is I know that he would be extremely happy to know that his fans have managed to raise money in his name for a good cause. Besides celebrating his birthday, this money will help thousands of people in Africa live better and healthier lives. All donations will be made in the name of Kim Jongdae/The international EXO community. A certificate will be sent to Jongdae himself if the $1,000 mark is reached. Please help us raise money for clean water in Africa in celebration for Kim Jongdae's upcoming birthday on September 21st. Remember that every dollar counts!
한국의 늘 열심히 노력하는 김종대의 목소리는 우리들에게 깊은 영감을 주고 있습니다. 그는 이렇게 우리들에게 많은 것을 주지만 우리는 돌려줄 것이 별로 없어요. 해외 팬으로서 지원할 수 있는 것도, 우리들의 존재를 알릴 수 있는 길도 많지 않아요. 그래서 이런 작지만 뜻깊은 프로젝트가 시작되었습니다. 그가 친절한 사람이라는 것을 알기에 그가 또한 어려운 이들을 돕는 이 프로젝트를 무척 좋아하고 우리들을 자랑스러워할 것이라 생각합니다. 그의 생일을 축하하고 기념하기 위해 계획된 이 프로젝트는 아프리카의 많은 사람들에게 더 건강하고 좋은 삶을 선물할 것을 자신합니다. 모금된 모든 것은 김종대와 EXO 비공식 해외 팬 모임 이름으로 전해질 것이며 목표액이 달성되면 김종대에게 인증서가 보내질 것입니다. 아프리카 어딘가에 깨끗한 물을 전하기 위해 오는 9월 21일, 그의 생일을 기념할 이 프로젝트에 많은 참여와 모금을 부탁 드립니다. 잊지 마세요,아주 작은 도움도 큰 힘이 된다는 것을!!

REMEMBER TO LEAVE YOUR MESSAGE TO CHEN If you need more space visit the link above If your name is wrong etc again, visit the link above and send an ask all messages max 200 words long.

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.

About The Water Project

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.
