Help Fund a Water Project

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

I first learned of The Water Project through The Vlogbrothers ( - who decided to donate to decrease world suck. This has led me to think about how I myself could help decrease world suck. I often feel like I take things for granted in life and I also sometimes feel helpless because I don't know how to help. And so, I decided to start small, with something that we all take for granted every day because it is so small. Please donate to help everybody have water, because everyone should have it.

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.
