For the past 4 years, I’ve decided to celebrate my birthday in a different way. On February 9th 2017, I’m turning 26 and to celebrate the big milestone I’m organising a fundraiser for Charity Water and pledging my birthday to collect $2600 in donations!
I’ve been lucky enough to be born and raised in this western world. I haven’t been in a position where I’ve my life has been in danger and I’ve never lacked basic resources to live. When it comes to material comfort, there’s nothing I really need and I’m living a happy and fulfilled life. So since 2013, I’ve decided to celebrate my birthday by trying to help others.
It’s worked great so far: since 2013, we’ve raised nearly $4000 and brought clean water to nearly 1000 people.
26 years old is pretty symbolic: a quarter of a century, the real coming of age. So to celebrate, I’m hoping to raise $2600! It’s a huge goal!
I’m not usually the type of person who would ask for a gift. However this is for a really good cause and it matters a lot to me. So whether you’re a close friend whom I’ve known for years, or whether we’ve met online recently, it’d mean a lot to me if you could spare a little bit of your time & money to make a donation.
Thanks again for taking the time to read this post! I hope to see you amongst the first generous contributors and will be sure to send an update about the campaign very soon!
