Across the world, there are over 800 million people who do not have access to clean drinking water. Women and children spend hours walking each and every day just to get access to some form of water…and most of the time, it's water that will end up making them sick. The journey is dangerous, the water heavy…and on top of that, the time they spend fetching water is time they aren't spending in school or working to provide for their families.
So what does that have to do with you and me?
Well, on November 7, I'll turn 20. And I'm asking for a pretty big gift…but not for me.
I want your help. From now until November 7, I'm asking everyone who sees this to help my birthday wish come true by giving $20 to help twenty families get clean water in twenty days for my twentieth birthday.
Twenty for twenty.
If we all make a small sacrifice (let's be honest, are you going to miss that $2?), we can make a HUGE difference in the lives of people…people we may never meet, but people nonetheless.
I'll be posting LOTS of information and updates on my charity: water fundraising page (mycharitywater.org/20TWENTY) and on my Instagram account (@ishootiphone) in the coming days. Even if you're not able to give financially, please tell your friends and family about this. Every little bit counts!
