My ALS ice bucket challenge modification. I have been challenged to do the ALS ice bucket. I have never been one to shy away from a challenge but it does put me in a bit of a philanthropic conundrum. Raising donations for any charity is a good thing but here are some facts to think about. ALS affects roughly 400,000 people world wide and yearly 100,000 of them will die from this disease. That is a terrible thing. Even more staggering though, roughly 340,000,000 people are without drinkable water and 3,400,000 of them will die a year from lack of clean drinking water and other related illnesses that come from not having access to this precious resource. So upon completion of my ice bucket challenge I will donate a small anmount to ALS but a larger amount to kick start myWATERPROJECT well and then hope this modification of my challenge carries on.

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.
