Birthday for Water

» 25 October 2011 » In Me »

This year I’m turning 35 years old, and I’m giving up my birthday for water.
What does this mean? There is a water crisis in the world. I was vaguely aware of it, but as with many causes and charities, I didn’t feel compelled to act. Then I heard Viktoria Harrison, the co-founder of charity: water, speak at Brooklyn Beta about delivering the salvation of clean water to third-world countries and it drove the point home. Clean water not only saves lives; it enables education, jobs, and personal dignity. So, this year I’m foregoing any birthday celebrations and instead asking everyone to help me raise money for charity: water projects. Check out more on my campaign page.
