Every day, 1,400 kids under the age of 5 die from water-related illnesses. Join me as we fix this #WaterFix #6thNF. Diseases from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Your donation will help change that. My birthday dream is to be part of the solution to the water-related diseases, help improve sanitation and minimize the number of kids who die from water-related disease. You can help me achieve that.
November is here and my birthday is on the 6th. I’m usually excited about getting older. And as a custom, I want use my birthday to fulfill a dream based on my desire. There are millions of kids around the world that don’t live to see their fifth birthday because they don’t have access to clean, safe drinking water. I am very well over the age of 5 and I’m thankful for those who helped. Now it’s my turn to help change that.
I’m asking for just at least six dollars ($6) each from everyone I know. Every penny of the money raised will directly fund clean water projects in developing countries in which I grew up in one. Even better, charity: water will show us exactly which projects we funded once they’ve been fully completed (which takes about 21 months). That means we’ll know the locations and names of the communities we helped.
Help me reach my birthday. Please donate to my birthday campaign!
In addition to this, if you donate for this cause, please send the receipt or payment details to me via soji AT adesojiadegbulu DOT com and I’ll send you a copy of my latest mini-book titled “Connecting the DOTS and links on Success” as a free gist.
