BENEFITING: THIRST PROJECT
EVENT DATE: Oct 08, 2013
My 23rd year has proven Blink-182 wrong in saying, "Nobody likes you when you're 23", because it has certainly been my best year yet! I consider myself to be extremely lucky, surrounded by amazing friends and family who push me to be a better person every single day. Because of this, I'm super excited to do something extra special for my 24th birthday!
If you're friends with me, chances are you've heard me talking about the global water crisis. The reality of this crisis is that there are nearly ONE BILLION people on earth today who STILL don't have access to a clean, safe water source. Women and children spend their entire days walking for water that often makes them and their families sick. Water related illness kills more kids every day than AIDS, malaria, and all world violence, combined.
My friends at The Thirst Project have challenged everyone to give up their favorite beverage during the month of September and donate their savings to help provide clean, safe water to people who need it. This has inspired me to not only give up my morning Starbucks, but also my favorite day of the year! MY BIRTHDAY.
In lieu of gifts, drinks, wild surprise parties, and happy birthday Facebook posts, I'm asking you, my amazing friends, to join me and The Thirst Project in our fight against global thirst. Please donate and help make my 24th birthday the best one yet!
