BENEFITING: WATER MISSION
EVENT DATE: Apr 06, 2013
HOURS PLEDGED: 580
While traveling with a group of students to Kenya, we were able to see first hand how the gift of safe water can change lives and give hope.
These students and others in an event management course planned a fundraiser and rasied $23,000 to purchase a water system for a community in Kenya. Some of those students were able to travel to Kenya and be a part of the dedication ceremony last March. I am a college professor and have been leading students abroad for many years, but this program was by far the most life-changing and meaningful experience that I could have imagined. The people in the community received the gift of safe water, but the students received an even greater gift.
If these college students could do it, then you can do it too. Just think what we can do when each of us gets our social networks involved.
Give the gift of Safe Water!
Donate here, Form a team for the Cooper River Bridge Run and get sponsors, reach out to your social networks, the possibilities are endless. http://www.bridgerun.com/
What if you could raise $25,000 for an entire water system that would give safe water to a community for decades? What if you could have the kind of experience that these students had?
Don't wait to make a difference, make a difference today!
