Happy Birthday TO ME

John Green

I just turned 38. To celebrate this good fortune, I'm asking people to donate to 750 million people lack access to clean water. As a result, hundreds of thousands of kids die every year of water-borne illnesses. This does not need to happen. has built a reputation not just for clean water solutions, but for sustainability.

I'll match your donations today, so every dollar you give is really worth two.

Thanks, and thanks for all your birthday wishes! DFTBA.
