Please spare your few minutes to read this.
I might be kinda late to get to know this, and some of you may be already aware of, the Charity: Water. It's a non-profit organization founded by Scott Harrison (Read his story here), aiming to bring clean, safe drinking water to people in developing nations. How did he come out with this idea? Have a look here,
That's the story - everything started from a birthday party, in such a meaningful way!
It raised $150,000 and brought clean waters to hospitals and schools in Kenya. And the following year - it went even bigger.
Things seem to be working. The September birthday campaign raised $1 million, and helped 50,000 people in Ethiopia.
And this year, they are planning to build wells for Bayaka people, in Central African Republic. Though the September Campaign is over - you can still always provide your help!
There are 3 ways to help:
1. If you're a September baby, give up your gifts and fundraise with them!
2. If you're not, consider donate to them.
3. Share the story, with friends, family, everyone that you know.
The message: Clean water offers improved health, a better quality of life, and hope for a better future.
You definitely can do something to help them.
I'm not a September baby, so I've carried out the way No. 2 and No. 3.
What about you?
