Money is only as important as the positive impact it can have on the world.
Our decades of combined personal finance experience has impacted tens of thousands of people around the world. But we’re not done.
A bunch of us came together to further our reach to see how much we can change the world. And we need your help.
We have a lofty goal of raising $10,000 for Charity:Water, an organization dedicated to bringing clean and safe water to people in developing countries.
Yes, we may have our own money worries, but most of us are blessed with running water. But not all of us have that luxury.
But many people around the world don’t have that luxury. Every day, about 1,400 children die from diseases caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are simple solutions like drilled wells, spring protections and BioSand filters that help provide clean water to communities around the world.
We started this fundraising campaign to help charity: water build these types of projects around the world, and we’re looking for anyone who can help us.
Please donate to our campaign — anything you can give is a huge help.
100% of the money will be used to build clean water projects, and when they’re complete, charity: water will send us photos and GPS coordinates so we can see the exact community we helped.
