my charity: water birthday campaign 2011!

Posted in Charity

Hi Everyone!

Last year I decided that I wanted to do something meaningful for my birthday. Instead of writing the usual wish-list of shoes, clothing, makeup, music equipment, etc., I created a birthday campaign to raise $2000 for people without clean drinking water.

I ended up raising much more… $2,542 to be exact! This means that 127 people will now have clean drinking water for 20 years! To know that my friends, family, music fans, and acquaintances are willing to help those in need as much as I am was such an inspiration. That’s why I want to give up my birthday again this year.

$5000 is the average cost of an entire water operation. If I can meet my goal this year, then combined with last year’s campaign, an entire water project will essentially be funded! That means about 24 families will be able to have clean drinking water for 20 years!

On December 6th, I’m turning 27 years old, and instead of asking for gifts, I’m asking for $27 or more from everyone I know. All of this money will go to build freshwater wells for people in developing nations.

A billion people in the world are living without clean water. Millions contract deadly diseases from contaminated water. 45,000 people will die this week alone. The lucky ones won’t, but still walk hours each day to get dirty water to give to their families. These facts are staggering!

My birthday wish this year is not for more gifts I don’t need; it’s to give clean and safe drinking water to some of the billion living without it. Join me?

Sincerely,
Jordyn

please note: Because of charity: water’s unique model, 100% of all donations go directly to direct water projects costs, and each donation is “proved” and tracked to the village it helped when projects are complete.
