Today is my birthday, 25 years to be exact. While I really do want to let it pass quietly (I feel old), I also want to do some good. Want to send me a gift? Figured you might. How about you just donate to Charity Water instead. I’m giving up my birthday, and it’s all I want from you: A $25 donation means only 200 of you (and there are thousands of you out there) need to pony up the cash so we can team up and build a well.

Only $5,000 builds a well that provides clean drinking water for 250+ people for more than 20 years.

Now that’s worth celebrating. Come on, lets go.

Update! Donate directly on the charity water site here!
