My Birthday Campaign

On 22nd Jan 2011, I'm turning 29.

But this birthday will be a little different.

Let me give a short intro about myself. I'm a practising medical doctor in Malaysia as the full-time profession. In other time, I perform magic as a hobby, as I like seeing people entertained, and laughter is always a good medicine.

While I'm thinking of helping more people, I came across Charity: Water, founded by Scott Harrison, and I'm truly amazed by it, the concept, and the people working behind it.

A billion people in the world are living without clean water - but how much are they really living? Millions contract deadly diseases from contaminated water. 45,000 people will die this week alone. The lucky ones won't, but still walk hours each day to get dirty water to give to their families.

So this year, I decided giving my birthday up.

Instead of asking for gifts, I'm asking for $29 or more from everyone I know. It's not going to me, though. All of it is going to build freshwater wells for people in developing nations.

My birthday wish this year is not for more gifts I don't need; it's to give clean and safe drinking water to some of the billion living without it. I want to make my birthday matter this year.

Please join me to make this happen. The ability to give is a gift, and you never know how considerable the changes will be to the people with your contribution.

You can make the donation here. (or http://mycharitywater.org/darrenmagic)

I'd like to thank you in advance.
