Concordia University Chicago is dedicated to raising awareness and money to build a well in Africa in hopes that it will allow the students and the community to gain a better understanding of how their actions can have a much larger impact on the lives of others far beyond our local community.
Approximately one BILLION people in this world do not have access to safe, clean water. This is a heartbreaking fact. It is easy for those of us who have clean water to take it for granted, at least I know I have. Meanwhile there are men, women, and children who get sick from diseases and parasites in the water they drink and bathe in. This is my rally cry to all of you to be a participant in supporting those affected by this travesty and choose with me to actively assist. I am pairing up with the non-profit organization Water to Thrive to increase awareness of the water crisis, and raise a minimum of $5,000 to build a water well in Africa. As a community who has clean water, we can connect with others far beyond our local community and impact the lives of people in a very meaningful way….by helping to bring them health in 2017. I ask for your help, so that we can make a difference in the lives of a Community – in Families – for Individuals – for Children. If just 200 people donate $25, we can meet the goal of $5,000. But there is no donation too small -- every dollar counts, even the spare change in your pocket. To make a donation simply select "Donate Now" directly from this page and and your gift will automatically be added to the fundraising goal. if you cannot donate today Concordia University Chicago will also be holding a 5K this coming April called the "Pump Run" where you can sign up to help fund for this water project. More details on this to come soon. TOGETHER we can make a difference!
