Giving Up My Birthday

I've been so blessed to have access to clean water all of my life! So this year, I'm giving up my birthday and my goal is to raise at least $600 by January 22nd, 2011. $600 will provide clean, safe water to 30 people.

If you regularly give me a birthday gift, or perhaps even if you don't, I would be honored if you would partner with me to help someone else in need. If you need convincing, watch these!

I know it's not impossible, so I'm just going to mention that $5000 would build an entire well for a community! Just 'sayin.

Every penny of the money raised will go directly to fund freshwater wells in developing nations. Even better, every dollar is "proved" when the projects are complete, and photos and GPS coordinates are posted using Google Earth.

We couldn't live without water and no one should have to. Click here to wish me a Happy Birthday!

“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’"

Matthew 25:34-40

Andrea, I love this! Bryan has the only debit card (I canceled mine when I thought it was stolen, oops) but will be donating when he gets back on Sunday.
