Teaming up with ThirstProject.org in helping raise awareness and funds to build fresh water wells all around the world!
I recently met Seth Maxwell, the founder and CEO of ThirstProject.org which is a non-profit organization that builds fresh-water wells all over the world!
Seth invited me to a few events where I got to learn more about the organization and I finally decided that I did enough sitting around and that its time to get off my butt and start helping!
Did you know that for only $20 you can provide fresh water to one person for the rest of their life! Not a week, or a month, or a year.. a LIFETIME! That's amazing!
Over 1 billion people do not have access to fresh drinking water. That is 1 out of 8 people in the world. 4,400 childred die (get ready for this..) EVERYDAY from unsafe drinking water.
So next time you brush you teeth, take a shower, flush the toilet, or drink a glass of water, think about all those who are not as fortunate to have easy access to water.
So lets team up and raise awareness and funds to help bring fresh water to those in need around the world!
It takes $5,000 to $12,000 to build a water-well. So our first fundraising event I want to raise $6000! One well can provide up to 500 people with clean water indefinitely and that is AWESOME!
