March Mission: Provide Clean Water

Each month, Positive Parents will feature a charity. If you want to be part of the helpers, donate or share the posts each month. Together, we can make a difference.


There are always scary things in the news, but we can be the helpers. 

Due to a nasty winter storm, I've been without water for 3 days. It's annoying to not be able to wash clothes or take a hot shower at home, but I realize it's annoying to me because I'm privileged to usually have running water.

Many of us have no idea what it's like to be thirsty. We have plenty of water to drink -- even the water in our toilets is clean!

But many people around the world don’t have that luxury. Every day, 1,400 kids die from water-related illnesses before they reach their fifth birthday. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are simple solutions like drilled wells, spring protections and BioSand Filters that help provide clean water to communities around the world.

I started this fundraising campaign to help charity: water build these types of projects around the world, and I'm looking for anyone who can help me.

Please donate to my campaign -- anything you can give is a huge help.

100% of the money will be used to build clean water projects, and when they’re complete, charity: water will send us photos and GPS coordinates so we can see the exact community we helped.

See our Helping Hands Campaign to learn more.
