Michael's Fundraiser for Clean and Safe Water

Michael Schmitz

Thank you to all the very generous people who have donated to my Water.Org fundraiser! I know that your contributions come from your hearts, and that means a lot to me - but more importantly your contributions save REAL LIVES! The gift of a permanent water supply gives people more time to spend in school, or to be more economically productive, and take better care of their families.

Around the world, 780 million men, women and children need access to safe water. This unhealthy living keeps children from attending school, and traps millions of people in a cycle of poverty. This can all change if we provide funds for the right solutions for access to safe, clean water.

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 a problem that speaks to me, and 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.
