You can bring the life-saving, game-changing gift of clean water to families in Dengali, Ethiopia

Imagine a future when the distance travelled to fetch water is measured in metres, not kilometres; minutes, not hours.

By creating your own personal fundraising page and inviting a few friends and family to support you, you can help make this future a reality.

This year we are raising money for the people in

Dengali, Ethiopia

Currently children like Selamnesh have to walk 2 hours to get water that is full of bacteria and disease...with your help we are going to change this and bring clean water to the 4,000 people in Dengali. A donation of $35 brings one person clean water for life. So register for the Run and then donate or fundraise as well.

Tips

  1. PERSONALIZE YOUR PAGE
    Share a bit of your own story - and why you care about clean water - on your page.
  2. GIVE TO YOURSELF (YOU’VE EARNED IT)
    Lead by example. Make a small donation to show you care and make it easier for others to give too.
  3. SEND (PERSONAL) EMAILS
    Create a short list of people who are most likely to give and write them a personal note asking for support.
  4. SHARE ON SOCIAL
    Once you’ve got some momentum going, start posting on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and any other networks you belong to.
  5. THANK EVERYONE
    Throughout your campaign, but especially at the end, show thanks and gratitude. It’s free (and it feels good!).
