Help Fund a Water Project

Together, we can unlock potential in a developing community by providing clean, safe water.
We are still at work! Want to give to our 2013 goal? Click here 2012's Vision Started here: Ok.... here it is..... my plea for the well. Don't worry, everyone gets this speech, not just all of you. When telling a customer about my well project, he said, "you know you are altering the future of the planet".... saving lives, making an area prosperous, giving generations a chance. This project for me started on New Year's Day 2012. What could I do in my life that could leave a mark? How could I make a difference? How could I involve Midwest Pond Design, and the network I have grown?


The common thread. So I searched about how to bring water to those in need, and found The Water Project. A donation from me? Or could I fund an entire project on its own? 

So I look at the total of my well project goal, $6000. 
I know I cannot construct this well on my own. But I have my time, I have the connections I have made, the people I work with, for, know, talk to, just meet.... everyone. I can explain that if 600 of us donate $10, we save the lives of approximately 600+ people and the next generation. $10, I would need to give up 5 Gatorades this year. Or a $5 donation, I need to not buy 3 bottled waters, I need to get it from one of the outlets in my house. During my year, what do I drink besides water? What bottled items could I eliminate by simply drinking water that is available to me? 

There are those whose walk 4 miles to contaminated water that is going to keep their family sick, and here I am not even drinking the water I have access to.

1 in 7 people on this planet are drinking contaminated water. Almost 1 billion people do not have a basic in life, water. 

So now I need your help, I may not even need your donation, you may not have it, and that's fine. But do people you know this year, would they be willing to donate to be a part of something like this? Would anyone be willing to pass up 1 soda, 1 energy drink, 1 coffee, this year........ for someone who doesn't have uncontaminated water in their lives?
This is a great opportunity to give back to those who do not have the basics in life. A $10.00 donation can make such a big difference, it's a piece of the puzzle. $10 saves a life, it is as easy as that. I'm looking forward to the day when we can look at the photos of our first well constructed and operational. In all the future invoices from Midwest Pond Design, this link will be offered to take $10.00 off your total bill and use it to donate to this project.
We will make a difference this year.
One of the greatest things about working with the Water Project is knowing that 100% of any donation goes directly to this construction project. Our goal amount will pay for an entire completed well. I would hope to make this a yearly goal for Midwest Pond Design, a pond company bringing water to others just makes sense. I ask that if you are unable to donate, you would help promote our efforts by passing this fundraising page and my words on to others.
Thank you,
Allen Midwest Pond Design

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.

About The Water Project

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.
