When is the last time you drank clean water? Probably today. Certainly within the last 24 hours. You showered and brushed your teeth with clean water this morning.
There are 1 billion people on the earth who don’t have access to clean water.
charity: water is changing that. Please take a few minutes to watch the following video.
Here’s the deal. In four days, on September 20th, I turn 34 years old. I don’t need any more “stuff”. Most of us don’t. The U.S. storage unit industry does over $20 billion in annual revenue. So I’m donating my birthday to charity: water.
I’m also donating my dad’s birthday, although he doesn’t know it yet. You see, we share a birthday. I was born on his birthday back in 1976. I didn’t come gift-wrapped but he kept me anyway.
Our goal is to raise $5,000, which is enough for charity: water to build a well that will provide a village of 250 people with clean water for years.
$5000 buys a well. And it is an attainable goal. What is $5000?
$5 from 1000 people.
$10 from 500 people.
$20 from 250 people.
$50 from only 100 people.
We can do this.
On charity: water’s site, you can download photos, watch and share videos, blog banners and twitter backgrounds. I just updated mine. (Free marketing lesson from charity: water – make it easy for your tribe to share your message.)
So please, donate. Spread the word. Email friends. Tweet it. Post it on Facebook.
If you have a September birthday, start your own campaign.
