Thank you to everyone who contributed to our Christmas Wells campaign! You helped us reach our goal more than a week before the deadline, funding a well in Tulwet, Kenya. We had such a great response that we realized we can serve even more people this Christmas.
Christmas is just three days away. I turned in my last paper on Friday, and break is awesome. Sleeping in, hitting the slopes, getting together with old friends and family…
But for many people, Christmas is just another day to survive. On December 25th, there will still be hundreds of thousands of women and children walking miles to provide dirty water for their families. Half of the world’s hospital beds will still be occupied by people suffering from the effects of dirty water. 5000 children will still die because they lack access to clean water – more than from any other cause.
This is where you come in. Right now we have a special opportunity to make a huge impact because there are three wells already dug that are just waiting for pumps. We only need $1400 to finish all three wells, which will provide clean water for up to 1500 people. That’s less than a dollar per person. This clean water will promote health, education, economy, gender equality, and development. Clean water changes everything.
Help us reach our goal of $1400 by New Year’s Day to complete three wells in the Tulwet region of Kenya. You can help by donating to the cause and inviting your friends to join the fight.

As Isaiah’s mom, I want to add a few thoughts. I was looking at the photos on The Water Fight site and these ones jumped out at me.
