One of my earliest memories is my mom walking through our village to get water from the well at my grandparent's house. We used this water to drink, do our washing and bathe. We were lucky, even though my mom had to go out to get the water, unlike almost 800 MILLION people, we had access to clean, safe water.
The problem is enormous but we can make a difference. One in eight people don't have safe water meaning each morning they scavenge to survive. Lack of safe water and sanitation impacts a family's health, keeps children from getting an education, and traps millions in a cycle of poverty.
In just over two weeks, I will be turning 30. In memory of where I came from and with the hope of living to see a world where safe water is accessible to everyone, I am asking that instead of birthday gifts, cards and flowers, people donate to this campaign. Lets work together to create the type of world we want to live in!
Good Luck Sumeera! This is a great cause.
Thanks for bringing my attention to this, Sumeera.
So glad you were born!
What a good cause, Sumeera.
I hope this isn't some scam. How do we know Sumeera won't drink all the water??

This is my first time donating to any organization. I thought it would be cool to kick off my first donation with a Happy Birthday wish.
For my sister, for her 30th birthday. I love you so much.
Great idea for a birthday gift.
What a great initiative!
What a great idea! Best wishes.
