Are You Sitting Down?

$275,000

That’s the total for Water For Christmas.

14 months, that’s how long it’s been up and running.

And you all have donated $275,000.

$175,000 of that was in this past November and December.

I’m short of words on that today. Because seriously, it’s baffling. When we started we wanted to build just one well. That was it. That was our goal. We had no idea how that first well would ripple into our hearts and result in 55 wells.

In other words:

-$640 a day
-13,750 people

Aren’t you amazed by that? You should be. But hold on kids because we’re not done yet. That solves just 1% of Liberia’s water crisis, so there’s more work to do.

But because we’re just people who aren’t getting paid, whose only strong suit is our ability to throw passion at something and watch it stick, we celebrate every.single.dollar.

And $275,000 is a lot of celebrating.

I hope that if you’ve donated, if you’ve prayed, if you’ve thought about water sometime in the last 14 months then you celebrate that too because that is the power of Water For Christmas, it’s about the movement.

Thank you so much for joining.
