Today is my 30th Birthday and I decided to give it up for charity.
A few months ago, on my Matt’s 28th birthday, I found out about Charity:Water, an awesome charity foundation that is all about building sustainable means to get clean water to places that need it in Africa. Matt was able to raise over $28.000 in donations on his birthday, and went on with a team to build a well in Ethiopia!
Shortly after his Birthday, I came across the following interview to Scott Harrison – the founder of Charity:Water – and I was incredibly inspired by it. I strongly recommend watching the whole thing, it’s a fantastic story.
So, this year for my 30th birthday I decided to give it up to Charity:Water and start a campaign to raise $3.000 (it would be lovely if I got $30.000, but I’m no Matt Mullenweg and they suggest we have a “realistic” goal – 100 people donating $30 seems reasonable) 😉
So check out my page $30 for my 30th on Charity:Water – and donate $30 or more.
100% of all donations go directly toward water projects. And about 18 months after this campaign ends, charity: water will show us where and how every dollar we raised ended up helping in the field. We’ll see GPS coordinates, photos and more details about the communities we’ve impacted.
If we reach $5.000 I get my name on a well – that would make me super proud.
Thank you and if you get inspired, you too can pledge your birthday!
