Today is my daughter Kylie’s 8th birthday! This kid is so compassionate, so kind and generous towards others. She really is. In the past she has collected money for various “coins for kids” fundraisers. She has volunteered her time at our church by serving in different ways. She writes letters to the girl we sponsor who lives in Cambodia. She has given her clothes and toys to others who would benefit from them.
But this new adventure of hers takes all of that to a new level. Kylie believes that she can change the world — and we believe that she can! She has developed a burden for children living in other countries who lack clean and accessible drinking water. She has come to us wanting to do something to help and through careful research and consideration, Kylie “pledged her birthday” to raise awareness and support to fund water projects for children and families living in Rwanda through charity: water. This is one of the most fantastic and reputable non-profit clean-water organizations out there and they’ve got a great network of partners in the countries that they help provide clean water solutions to.
Kylie said on her campaign page, “Women and children around the world walk hours every day to collect water for their families. And the worst part? The water they collect can make them really sick. That makes me sad. But what makes me happy is that we can actually do something about it!” Her initial goal was to raise $1,000 over her 90-day campaign but when she met that goal after the first few days, she had to increase that goal for the remaining 80-some days that are left. Her new goal is $2,500 and the campaign ends July 29th. Would you consider joining together with Kylie in this endeavor to provide clean, safe and accessible drinking water for families living Rwanda?
