BENEFITING: Imagine Scholar Inc

Mark Lim

THE STORY:

My goal is to help raise $360, which covers 6 months of clean water for 33 Imagine Scholars. That's an average of $2 a day!

Why is clean water important? Here in Nkomazi, South Africa, people do not have ready access to clean water. Many are unable to drink reliably clean water. For our Scholars, coming here means that they can drink without the risk of waterborne diseases, parasites and generally “yucky” things. And that means that they often drink quite a bit! Our goal is to support the next generation of African leaders—so we can't just hold classes. We have to keep them at their best! If you donate, you have the comfortable knowledge that you are making a BIG difference for inspiring youth I see every day. The jug of water you see is refilled on a regular basis at the water store down the street--imagine, a store just for water.

To honor the cause, it's Water Week at Imagine Scholar! That basically means I'm going to post water-related activities we do, each day this week on Imagine Scholar.

Here's the schedule:

Thursday 10/25: New blog entry about why I'm fundraising
Friday 10/26: Water sanitation facts (made by Scholar)
Saturday 10/27: Water skit, and wearing blue for Water week (by Scholars)
Sunday 10/28: Poem about water (by Scholar)
Monday 10/29: Details about our water vendor, and pictures of the nearby river
Tuesday 10/30: Watercolor art about water (by Scholar)
Wednesday 10/31: Halloween! I will dress up as The Waterboy
Thursday: Thank you! (by Scholars)

Thank you for your interest :) I'd be happy to answer any questions on Facebook or mark@imaginescholar.org. Happy Water Week!

Yo this site sucks. No one wants to enter their credit card info. Amazon checkout/Paypal cost a little extra, but I bet more people would donate. 4 years ago
