A Birthday Request

Dear Friend,

I’m about to turn a year older. And hopefully, a little wiser.

I saw this video and learned that almost a billion people on our planet still don’t have access to clean drinking water. Take a look at this short video which kind of brings this “home”.

I’d like to do something about this. So this year, I’m giving up my birthday for charity: water.

Instead of giving me presents, or writing on my Facebook wall, would you consider donating $4, $7, or $47 for my 47th birthday, and help me bring clean water to people in need?

Go to my campaign to donate: http://mycharitywater.org/dougs-birthday-2012

What’s really cool is that 100% of the money we raise will directly fund water project costs in the field, and charity: water will prove every single dollar.  When the project we help fund is complete, they’ll send us a digital completion report with GPS coordinates and photos of the community we helped. Here’s an example.

I can’t think of a better way to celebrate my birthday than by giving the gift of clean water to people in need. Would you please join me?

Godspeed,

Doug
