My name is Juliana Travis. Since I started my blog (julianatravis.com) at the end of December 2014, it was such a big hit, and I decided that maybe starting a campaign to raise money for charity would be a big hit as well. I began searching for charities, but none of them really stood out to me as the one I wanted to choose. As I was looking, the song Oceans by Hillsong UNITED was running through my head. I came across The Water Project and I started reading about it and knew that was the charity I had been looking for.
Water plays a big role in each of our lives. It affects our health, education, and many other things. We don’t realize how lucky we are to have clean water in our homes and cities. I hope through this campaign that people will realize that we take so much for granted that people in other countries are never given the opportunity to have, even something as simple as clean water.

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.
