Update: We did it, and in less than 24 hours.  THANK YOU!

Friends, family, complete strangers,

It’s my 26th birthday on the 26th, and if you knew me when I was 25, you know just what I wanted… and with your help, I got it.

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to travel through rural Tanzania. While I was there, I was able to witness firsthand the difference clean drinking water can make for a community.

I took the pictures below. People used to wade into this disgusting swamp to get their water several times throughout the day, or lower buckets into the muddy mess.  It’s unreal.

We’ve all heard about it non-stop, but I needed to see it with my own two eyes. It’s unexplainable and as soon as I saw it I knew I had to keep helping.

Last year we built one well together, this year let’s go for two. That will serve 500 people clean drinking water.

And this time I will personally match every donation up to $5,000.

Ready? Set? Let’s go.

Happy birthday to me,
