After a year of fundraising for charity: water, my Twenty Project is ending on December 31st. I’ve been rallying last-minute donations to bring the total raised to more than $2,500. I hit $2,502 a few days ago, and there’s still more coming from a wonderful music festival full of local bands put on by Walkingstick Presents here in Arizona. If you’ve been planning on donating, now is the time! Any last bit of support would be amazing, as always :)
If you have a few minutes, watch this video from charity: water that summarizes a great year in bringing thousands of people around the world clean water. HURRAY!
We hit our goal!
Late Sunday night, we hit our $1.2 million goal for September Campaign. That means we’ve now raised enough money to purchase an FS 250 drilling rig for our partner in northern Ethiopia. We’ll ship the rig from Italy to Ethiopia immediately and it will get to work digging wells in early 2012!
And…your impact will be doubled.
Hitting our $1.2 million goal also means that one of our most dedicated supporters will match it with an additional $1.2 million — providing a second drilling rig!
Together, these two drilling rigs will dig 160 new wells a year that can give 80,000 people access to clean drinking water!

you know, I’ve been thinking about doing this
Do it :) You will NOT regret asking people to give others clean and safe water instead of presents for yourself. Your birthday comes every year, so why not celebrate it for a good cause this year?
How did I forget to mention?
I got a birthday call yesterday from charity: water. How nice! :) My campaign is open until the end of the year, so you have plenty of time to donate if you want to.
charity: water is great at saying ‘thanks.’ For their fifth birthday, they made 250 thank you videos for different fundraisers. It’s great to know that they’re not only concerned with the people they’re helping, but also with the people helping them.
Thank YOU for the support, and happy Wednesday :)
