love this

A friend of mine just introduced me to charity: water and I am already a big fan. The mission is simple. charity: water is a non-profit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to 1.1 billion people in developing nations who don't have access to it. 100% of the money raised goes directly to projects, most funding sustainable clean water solutions in areas of greatest need. Other projects focus on raising awareness through events, fundraising exhibitions, and other public awareness campaigns (most currently Jingle Wells).

On the site, founder Scott Harrison shares his story with an undeniably honest tone. "For me," he says, "charity is practical. Sometimes easy, sometimes inconvenient, always necessary."
