We are super honored to announce that two incredible people have given up their birthdays this month for clean water! Jaime Markham of East Hartford, CT and Rebecca Conner of Carbondale, IL have given up their birthdays this month so that others might have CLEAN WATER! So far they have both raised more than $350 a piece.
Only $20 gives someone clean water for 20 years, so through their birthdays, 35 more people will have access to clean, safe, drinking water.
Way to go guys! Thanks for giving up your birthday so that others might live.
If you’d like to give up your birthday, or any holiday for clean water, ask us how and we will get you started!
Danielle is a college student in Chicago, IL.
Last weekend she had a cookie exchange party. Her famous caramel popcorn and assortment of other cookies provided by Danielle and the guests were a hit! This is a yearly occasion that many within their group of friends look forward to.
BUT, the good deed is not the party. It’s the day after.
Danielle woke up early on a Saturday, rode the train downtown, fought through the nasty cold and rain that day, and went around with decorative bags filled with her famous caramel popcorn and leftover cookies, passing them out to the homeless people she spotted on the street. Danielle exhibited the truly good spirit of Christmas, and of good deeds for others. As she delivered her bags with a smile, and oftentimes also a monetary donation, we know many were blessed that day through her.
It’s not just giving; its giving with style :-)
Want to help but don’t know how? Here’s a simple way if you use Google Chrome:
http://www.google.com/chrome/intl/en/p/cause/#tnc Follow the link and download the extension called “Chrome for a Cause” that gives money to the causes you love by simply opening new tabs on their browser! You can even just sit there for 10 minutes clicking the “new tab” button. Do you use google chrome? Do you have 10 minutes? If you open 200 tabs you can give someone clean water through the cause we are trying to benefit, charity: water. This is a great way to give back, and you don’t even have to leave your chair!
