Comics all 'sold out'
August 02, 2017
This year, I am organizing Appnovation’s annual charity challenge. We are fundraising to build a clean water system in the Amazonian community of Kanambu, Ecuador with WE Charity (formerly Free the Children). This water system will bring water to houses within the community.
**If you donate $20, I will create an e-comic of a fun time we had together. Offer valid to the first 8 people who donate.** ALL SOLD OUT NOW
After spending time abroad in Fiji and taking a Master’s class on Travelling for Health reasons, I am skeptical of organizations that promote voluntourism. So, I decided to do more research about WE, their mission/values and how they are organized.
What I found out is that WE Charity (focuses on bringing communities out of poverty) is completely separate from ME to WE (focuses on voluntourism, re-sells products, etc).
Although I don’t think their organization is perfect, I agree with their mission to provide sustainable change through a 5-year program that focuses on health, education, water, opportunity and food.
Any dollar you donate here will go directly towards WE Charity’s Clean Water project in the Kanambu, Ecuador community.
