THE STORY:

Starting July 9, I am embarking on a 500 mile bike tour through Missouri with my buddy Snack. It was on a bike tour almost exactly two years prior that I re-assessed my life and decided I wanted to focus on what excited me most: applying technology to ending poverty in the developing world. This launched my relationship with EOS International (eosintl.org), where I'm now Director of Development.

When I was in Nicaragua in March, living and working with my Nica co-workers, I learned about the importance of clean water firsthand. Everyone in Nicaragua experiences the impact of microorganisms in the water. In fact, over 2% of Nicaraguans die from diarrheal diseases and it is one of the leading causes of death in children under 5.

EOS installs these homemade, ingenuous, cheap water chlorinators that reliably feed a constant supply of chlorine into the water without using electricity, making it free of microorganisms for the whole village.

My original goal was $500, $1 for each mile I will ride. And y'all have bowled me over with your generosity! I'm thrilled to be able to change my goal to $3 for each mile I ride, meaning for each mile I am helping a small family in Nicaragua have a safe supply of water. Will you join me in helping EOS empower Nicaraguans to improve their health?
