Water for 2020

Diseases from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Can you give $10 to change that?

Clean water is a luxury we all take for granted. In Meda, Ethiopia a six hour round trip to the local water source often yields only 5 gallons for young mothers who made the trek.

That's less than three minutes under an average American shower.

The ask is simple - can you give $10? I'm using ALMA to match donations up to $1000, so your impact will be doubled. This $1000 will only be used in its entirety if we can raise $1000 donations from others, from you.

Water for 2020

The Challenge

I want to highlight just one of the statistics provided by the CDC in relation to Global Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (available here).

  • "Water, sanitation and hygiene has the potential to prevent at least 9.1% of the global disease burden and 6.3% of all deaths"

The Solution

Despite the devastation inflicted by poor access to clean water, there is hope. Charity: water leads the charge in impact driven solutions that have helped 10 million people drink clean water in 28 countries.

Take part in the impact:

  • "Water and sanitation interventions... were demonstrated to produce economic benefits ranging from US $5 to US $46 per US $1 invested".
  • 30Donations
  • $720Raised so far

Books have made me who I am. Most recently, in Thirst, Scott Harrison (CEO of charity: water) recounts his journey from nightclub promoter in NYC to leader of one of the most innovative nonprofits in the world. His story is not a simple account of hard work and sacrifice, but one of reckoning, retribution, reunion, redemption.

It in no small way inspired me.

Make a donation

Why Monthly? Recurring donations allow nonprofits to focus on solutions rather than fundraising.
Your donation will be made to a donor advised fund at Philanthropic Ventures Foundation (PVF), a 501(c)3 public charity, EIN 94-3136771, with a recommendation that PVF make a corresponding grant to Water for 2020. ALMA works with PVF in order to facilitate donations to charities. Please see our Terms of Use and FAQs to learn more about the donation process.
