About this campaign

Did you know that about 663 million people around the world don’t have access to safe water? More than 800,000 of them die each year from diarrheal diseases caused by dirty water and poor sanitation and hygiene—most are children.

I have set a goal of raising $300 for water projects for Samaritan’s Purse for my birthday. In order to help reach this goal, I’ve decided to add the incentive of making you cookies if you donate $50 or more. And who doesn't like freshly baked cookies?
