Working with Charity:Water to bring clean water to Ethiopia
Two years ago our company was one of the first to pilot charity: water’s new online giving platform called “mycharity water”. This was our first introduction to providing clean drinking water to people in need. Through this first campaign we were able to raise $11,887 and fund three water projects.
Finally after two years the projects are complete and you can see the proof.
We’ve made incredible progress in just two short years, but we’ve just scratched the service. This year alone we have donated $226,000. But this September we have to “Keep trucking, baby”.
charity: water is ready to put the pedal to the metal and speed up the time it takes to get these projects completed which is why this September campaign will fund a drilling rig fleet. This rig will help us help more people in Northern Ethiopia. We’ve set the goal at $100,000. We’ve already gotten some help from the Groupons we’ve sold ($5 from every Smile Generation groupon sold is donated to charity:water) and we’ll also get help from all the CAD/CAM’s that our Smile Generation-approved offices are going to do this quarter. But we need all of you to give if we’re going to reach our goal. charity: water is looking to raise 1.2 million through the September campaign. We can help them accomplish a huge chunk of that. Let’s keep trucking, baby.
Happy Anniversary to Charity:Water! The Smile Generation is happy and proud to be part of your mission.To get involved and donate visit our page at http://mycharitywater.org/smilegen2011q3
