It all starts with something simpe! Recently Joshua was brushing his teeth before bed and his Mom explained he should turn off the fawcet and not waste water. Joshua asked why, and she explained that there are children/people dying in Africa due to a of drinking water crisis. That night he broke open his piggy bank and offered every cent he had (including Canadian Tire Money) to donate to those in need of fresh water in Africa!
As fate would have it, the nextevening a commercial for the www.thewaterproject.org aired.........and an idea was born. Joshua agreed it was time to do a little more giving to those in need, as he has been blessed with so much. And thus we have Joshua Taylor's 8th Birthday Fundraiser. He asked that you give genereously in lieu of gifts, to this worthy cause :)

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.
