Help Fund a Water Project

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

This year has been had more ups and downs than any I can remember. The downs are all too fresh in our minds so I won't spend too much time talking about them. It's the positives that I want to focus on. Despite its shortcomings, this year has given way to a ton of victories on a personal and global scale. I'll remind you of a few of them:

  • California is now powering over 6 million homes with solar energy, the largest number of any state in the US. On top of that, Las Vegas became the largest US city to power all public buildings with renewable energy.
  • The wild tiger population increased for the first time in 100 years. Yay Tigger.
  • NASA's Juno spacecraft reached Jupiter's orbit (a 1.8 million mile distance)!
  • The US military put into place a new maternity-leave policy that gives female service members 12 weeks of paid vacation after having a child. Maybe dads are next!
  • The Paris Climate Change Agreement was signed (please let this one stick)
  • A man woke up from a coma after ultrasound waves were used to waken him during a three-day trial conducted by UCLA researches. He regained all consciousness and language comprehension.
  • Scientists somehow found a way to link robotic limbs with the part of the brain that signals intent, so now patients can just think something and it'll happen. That's amazing!
  • India reported that volunteers planted almost 50 million trees in July. Over 800,000 people worked for 24 hours to get this done after India signed into effect the plan as part of the Paris Climate Change Agreement.
  • A company called EnChroma designed glasses that allow colorblind people to see normally!
  • Giant pandas are no longer endangered.
  • The first solar-powered plane, Solar Impulse 2, made its way completely around the world without the use of any fossil fuel.
  • The Cubs won their first World Series in basically an eternity.
  • I could go on and on, but you get the point. The bigger reason that I'm reminding you of these things is to point out that everything is a matter of perspective. A little bit of hope and a little bit of optimism goes a long way. This fundraiser is opportunity to put all of that into action. Access to clean water is a baseline need that should not go unnoticed. Let's give the people on the other side of our donations some peace of mind and the opportunity to share in the world's current and future victories.

    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.
