The Living Water

Project Event Date(s): Ongoing

Project Event Location:

My project supports: Global Samaritans

Project description

I plan to raise money and awareness by hosting a jelly bean beanboozle game and by creating a fundraising video.

Please take a few minutes to check out my fundraising video to learn more about my project:

 

 

I am also hosting a beanboozled jelly bean challenge. For a minimum of donation of $20.00, I will send a family of your choice their own beanboozled jelly beans.  My hope is that people will have fun eating the jelly beans but see the importance of having clean water to drink, especially after eating the gross jelly bean flavors!  If you would like to beanboozle a family of your choice, please email me at jackalope508@gmail.com with the name of the family and address.

Thank you for helping me help others!

Why I want to raise money for Global Samaritans

Wells are needed in Africa because people have to walk all day to a lake that is often contaminated with bacteria, to fill a bucket and carry it back to the village.  A gallon of water weighs 8.3 pounds.  People carry as many as 10 gallons at one time back to their village, weighing 83 pounds.  In sub saharan Africa, only 20% of the population has access to safe drinking water.  28% of the population have basic sanitation facilities that are not shared with other households.  People are not receiving education because they spend all day walking to get water.  Knowing all of this, I believe it is my turn to do something about this problem.

I am raising money for Global Samaritans.  This group will take this money and use it to drill a well in Zambia, a country in Africa.  Global Samaritans started as an orphanage for children whose parents died in the AIDS epidemic.  Then, Global Samaritans started drilling wells with some of the money that was donated to them.  Mr. Elder has been to Zambia and worked with the drillers to provide a well in a local village.  Global Samaritans is going to build more wells, and I would like to raise enough money to cover the cost of one well.
