In honor of Movember, since I always have a beard and mustache, I have decided to remain clean shaven, as long as donations last. For every $10 in donations, from now until the end of November, I will remain clean shaven for 1 day. If more than $300 dollars is raised (which would extend the shaving until the end of November), I will remain clean shaven until donations run out.
All donations will go to water.org.
Official shave start date: Nov 1.
The water and sanitation problem in the developing world is far too big for charity alone. We are driving the water sector for new solutions, new financing models, greater transparency, and real partnerships to create lasting change. Our vision: Safe water and the dignity of a toilet for all, in our lifetime.
Co-founded by Gary White and Matt Damon, Water.org is a nonprofit organization that has transformed hundreds of communities in Africa, South Asia, and Central America by providing access to safe water and sanitation.
Water.org traces its roots back to the founding of WaterPartners International in 1990. In July 2009, WaterPartners merged with H2O Africa, resulting in the launch of Water.org. Water.org works with local partners to deliver innovative solutions for long-term success. Its microfinance-based WaterCredit Initiative is pioneering sustainable giving in the sector.
