Gift Change, Not Junk

Earlier this summer, instead of buying another paisley necktie or pair of pleated trousers for my birthday, I asked my friends to donate my age in dollars ($33) to charity: water so we could bring clean water to people who need it most.

Thanks to y’all, we’ve raised more than $17,000, and with one last push we can get to our $20,000 goal before the campaign ends this weekend.

Are you willing to help? 100% of our donations go directly toward getting people access to clean water. Together we can gift change. Real change, a real gift, not another useless pair of cufflinks.

P.S. You can do the same for your next birthday. It’s easy. Find the details at my charity: water page.
