Harini's Clean Water for Rwanda Campaign with Charity:Water

Thursday, September 20, 2012

I'm not really much of a runner.
But in three months, I'm going to have run 350 miles for the year 2012.

It's going to require training, determination, endurance, strength and a whole lot of moral support. Honestly, I'm not all that sure I can handle it.

But when I think of the millions of women and children who have to walk miles each day to collect water for their families, I think of how most of that hard-earned water isn't even clean. I think about how 30,000 people die each week from water-related diseases.

And then... yes. I'll run 24 miles each week. I can do it. But I need your help.

My goal is to raise $1000 for water projects. The best part: 100% of all donations go directly to water projects. You can pledge per mile, you can give a lump sum when I complete my 350 miles or you can just donate whatever and whenever you want in the next three months.

I've never done anything like this before. And I promise to do it without complaining. After all, I'll have fresh water to keep me going. That's more than millions around the world can ask for.

Please join me in helping them.

You can donate here:

What's really cool about charity water is that 100% of the money we raise will directly fund water project costs in the field, and they'll prove every single dollar. When the project we help fund is complete, they'll send us a digital completion report with GPS coordinates and photos of the community we helped.

Please help me raise $1000 by Dec 31, 2012. You can donate to my campaign here:
