BENEFITING: Solea Water
Hi friends, family, and world! Thank you for considering donating to this cause. As a former swimmer, lifeguard, shower-taker, food-eater, hand-washer, and avid water drinker, water holds a very special place in my heart. Much of my life has been shaped by this life-giving substance, but unfortunately, not everyone has spent as much time as well-hydrated as I have. In fact, 1 in 9 people do not have access to clean water. I believe water is a basic human right. As a way to do my part in combating the Water Crisis, I am asking all of you to donate whatever you can to my campaign. As I am turning 19, I suggest a donation of $19 if you are able. 100% of the proceeds will go directly to those impacted by the water crisis. My campaign is through a wonderful organization called Solea Water--look them up if you have time! In addition to refusing gifts in favor of donations, I will be carrying around a Jerry can for the day to increase awareness surrounding the water crisis and to walk in solidarity with those that have to trek miles every day to collect clean water. Typically, a Jerry can weighs around 40 lbs when full and many women and children spend hours each day collecting water for their families. I am excited to see where this journey takes me. THANK YOU for your support--I would appreciate your prayers as well as donations! I will be sure to keep you all updated. You're the best!
