When someone first told me that almost one billion people live without clean water on a daily basis, I was shocked; but I also knew that I wanted to do something about the water crisis. Throughout the past eight years, I have worked on many efforts to help fund clean water wells to the people of Ethiopia. This year, instead of receiving gifts for my eighteenth birthday, I hope that you join me in giving people a basic resource we take for granted: clean water. It would mean so much to me if you would donate $18.00 (or more 🙂 ) as a gift for my eighteenth birthday. Thank you.
What these third graders did will amaze you! Congratulations Students!
This year, the Asian Business Students Association at the University of Texas at Austin decided to support Water to Thrive for our year-long charity campaign. As the global water crisis is a serious issue, we wanted to directly impact those in need of clean water by hosting a variety of events to raise money to fund a water project. Through Water to Thrive, this money will fully contribute to the construction of a well. As an organization based on the three pillars of professional, social, and philanthropic, we strive to provide our members with the opportunity to give back to others.
