In Priscilla Carrion’s words…..
I gave up my birthday on the morning of February 11, 2012, during the ONE Conference. My birthday is in December so you can imagine how long I’ve been waiting for this moment.
I don’t want a party or presents. I want to give people the chance to drink clean water.
As many of you know, my husband and I are expecting our first child in a few months and I would hate for my baby to drink unclean, unsafe water. I dislike the fact that many children around the world today are drinking contaminated water. I can’t imagine giving any child, especially those who I love and care about, dirty water.
Just so you know, I will not be keeping any of your donations. The best part about all of this, is that 100% of the money I raise will directly fund water projects in Rwanda. When those projects are complete, charity: water will send me photos and GPS coordinates so I can see the impact you helped me make. I honestly can’t think of a better birthday gift.
Please join me by helping me raise $2,800.
I can’t wait to, one day, tell my baby girl the difference you helped me make while I was pregnant with her!
