We decided to ask five of our friends to donate $5 and ask five of their friends to donate $5. Then those 5 friends would ask five of their friends to do the same. Very quickly, those five friends and that $5 can grow to thousands of friends and dollars.
We call the campaign 5,000 Well Wishers because that is what we are hoping for. If 5,000 people join together in donating just $5, it will mean 5 wells are built and 1,250 people will have the safe drinking water that they so desperately need.
As Mother Teresa said, "We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop." So won't you join me and my father in showing how a simple small action can create a huge change and in getting water where it is so urgently needed?
Thank you for your help. Feel free to check back from time to time to see our progress or check out our 5,000 Well Wishers group page on Facebook at
