water, water, everywhere and not a drop to drink.

Right now, almost a billion people on the planet don’t have access to clean, safe drinking water. That’s one in eight of us.

One in eight.

A friend has decided to do something about this. In honor of her Ethiopian born daughter, she is collecting donations to drill a well in her daughter’s birth country. A well that will provide 250+ people with clear, drinkable water.

250 people.

To build that well, she needs to collect $5000. She has 90 days to do it. That’s where you come in.

On the off chance that the well is not fully funded, all donations will go into the general construction fund and will still be used to drill a well, it just might not be in the exact location that my friend had hoped.

Though we take it for granted, easy access to a pure water source is a privilege, but it should be a right.

All donations are tax deductible and will go directly towards funding this well.

Why should you give money for water? Click here.

And then click here. Become a “Friend of Fanose”. Tell your Dad that instead of buying him another stupid tie, you donated in his honor this Father’s Day and that together you will be helping a village to thrive. That beats the tar out of a tie any day.
