I will be photographing a medical mission trip in Kenya on my birthday this year — and that alone is the perfect gift for me. Because I won’t even be here to accept anything, and because I already have more than a fair share of blessings, I’m asking all my loved ones to remember me on April 6th by sending some love to the place I’ll be that day. Please donate whatever you would have spent on me to charity: water, to help build clean water wells in Africa!
Did you know that almost a billion people on the planet don’t have access to clean drinking water? Every day, 5,000 kids die from water-related illnesses before they reach their fifth birthday. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are simple solutions like drilled wells, spring protections, and BioSand filters that help provide clean water to communities around the world.
Every cent of every dollar you donate to my birthday campaign will be used to build clean water projects in developing countries. Charity: water funds their operating costs separately through a group of private donors, so 100% of all public donations will go directly to people in need.
We can help buy neverending drinks for an entire community — that’s got to be the most efficient 21st birthday ever. : ) Here is the link to my campaign – please take a few minutes to donate! Absolutely anything you can give is very welcome. Thanks, friends. Grace and peace and Happy Tuesday.
