Hello Family and Friends,
For my 46th year of life, I am fundraising to help build a much needed water well in Africa so that children and their families can have clean water to drink.
We all take our blessings, including clean water to drink, to cook with and bath with daily, for granted. I cannot imagine not having easy access to clean water yet millions of people around the world do not have this basic necessity.
It costs at least $4,600 to build one water well. As 2012 represents my 46th year on this planet, I have chosen a goal of $460-- or 10% of the cost of a water well.
Once the goal is reached, The Water Project will utilize these vital funds towards a water well project--and, the best part is, you will get a link so you can watch the well building project progress toward completion!
Please share what you can whenever you can throughout 2012!
Many thanks in advance for your support,
P.S.: I am asking family and friends in lieu of birthday gifts or holiday gifts this year to contribute to my water project instead. That way we can all give the gift that truly keeps on giving!

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.
