Why You should Celebrate My Birthday this Year (It’s not what you think!)

Char water

The power of service is an amazing thing. I am finding out more and more that it’s what life is really all about. Scott Harrison, the founder of Charity: Water gets it, and shared his inspiring story on the School of Greatness podcast (listen here).

Charity: Water is a non-profit organization founded in 2006 that provides clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. It has since helped fund 13,641 projects in 22 countries, benefiting over 4.6 million people. Their mission is to bring clean and safe drinking water to every person in the world. I’d like to help them do that, and I invite you to join me!

A lot of people choose to donate an event (like a birthday) to Charity: Water, so that is what I’m doing for my birthday this year.

Instead of a gift,

I’m asking you to donate to Charity: Water

Any amount is appreciated. I’m starting with $27 since it’s going to be my 27th birthday on April 26th (3 weeks from today). If you started saving today, you would need to save about $1.30/day, (about the cost for a cup of coffee) for the next 3 weeks.

Another great thing about this organization – private donors cover their operating costs, so 100% of your donation goes to funding water projects. Plus, Charity: Water tracks every dollar we raise, and shows the projects we helped fund with photos and GPS. How awesome is that?!

I am calling my project Water for Candles, because by replacing birthday candles with clean drinking water for people in need, we can bring a lot more light to the world. Thank you for your generosity.
