There are a billion people living without clean water. In September 2007, we had a crazy idea. We asked our friends to give up their birthdays and ask for donations instead of gifts. We used 100% of the money raised to build water projects. Every year, it got bigger. We've now helped over a million people in 17 countries get clean water. This September, join us again.
