Help Me Give Someone Safe Water
Help Lynn change the lives of 200 people.
Lynn Johnson Hasselberger
Every 21 seconds, a child dies from a water-related disease, and diarrhea remains the second leading cause of death of children under the age of five worldwide. The problem is enormous but solutions are available. Kids with access to safe water are healthier and can attend school regularly.
I know there are a lot of worthy charities out there. I’ve created my own fundraiser for Water.org because I believe safe water is necessary for life. The water crisis is something I feel I can help solve. I hope you agree by giving whatever amount you can to support my efforts.
For every $25 that I raise, Water.org can give someone access to safe water for life. Co-founded by Matt Damon and Gary White, Water.org has been helping people develop sustainable solutions for more than 20 years. Together, we can change lives with safe water.
I scrolled through the @Water twitter timeline until I found a fundraiser! I hope this helps you reach your goal!
When you make a contribution to this fundraiser, you are helping to end the water crisis.
Around the world, 780 million people lack access to safe water to drink. This impacts overall health and contributes to the cycle of poverty.
The impact of the water crisis on time alone is astounding. Women around the world, who shoulder the majority of daily water collection, walk on average 3.7 miles every day to collect water.
Your contribution to this fundraiser will help people gain access to safe water through the work of Water.org, a nonprofit organization.
Water.org’s projects heavily involve the communities in need. They decide what kind of solution will work best and help with the construction.
Through local water committees, made up of community members, they also decide how to manage their solution and collect small user fees to maintain it long-term.
Once people gain access to safe water, everything changes. Kids are healthy enough to attend school, women aren’t waiting or walking for water and can work, and families are transformed.
