Like most of you, my Facebook feed has been filled with friends and family completing the ALS 'Ice Bucket Challenge'. However, as great at it is raising attention and money for ASL research, I'm not comfortable with how much valuable water it is wasting. So instead, I did not complete the Ice Bucket Challenge. I donated the $100 to ASL, as well as donated $100 to the Water Project to donate precious water to people who need it. I also hope my family and friends can help me raise another $100. Any amount of donation will be a great help.

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.
