Welcome to the Miller Family 2011 family philanthropy project!
Please join us in supporting a cause important to us. There's nothing more important than safe drinking water!
2.5 billion people lack adequate sanitation
4,000 children die each day from water-related illnesses
Here are the basics: Water For People works to build a world where all people have access to safe drinking water and sanitation, and where no one suffers or dies from a water- or sanitation-related disease. This is their vision.
To one in seven people worldwide, getting water is backbreaking, life-threatening work. And drinking that water will likely make them sick, or die.
DOUBLE YOUR IMPACT, UP TO $2 MILLION!
It’s simple: Be part of the Donate to Drink $2 Million Challenge. Several donors have pledged $1 million and challenged Water For People to raise another $1 million. From September 1 until October 31, 2011, your impact will be doubled.
Imagine the possibilities. Your gift of $25 has the power of $50. A gift of $100 has the power of $200! The party is growing but Water For People and I need YOU for it to be complete!
Plus there are great gifts!
- $25 gets you a bracelet made in Rwanda.
- $100 earns a stainless steel water bottle from Marmot Mountain.
- Or become a fundraiser yourself (click the black box “Fundraise for this Event” at www.crowdrise.com/donatetodrink) and raise at least $1000 for a chance to win an all-expenses paid trip to join a World Water Corps volunteer expedition to Rwanda in 2012! Every $1000 raised earns you another entry. (Hint hint: This is my goal too!)
Before your next drink of water, make sure the people who need safe water and sanitation get it, too.
Thank you for any donation you can make to help with this cause!
