This is a brilliant way to raise money for those who need clean drinking water. I don’t know if you have ever read or heard this stat, but 3.575 million people die each year from water-related disease. 884 million people, lack access to safe water supplies, approximately one in eight people.
These are just a couple of stats (get more here). My Charity:Water has created something to help this glaring need. Their vision is simple and ambitious: clean, safe drinking water for everyone on the planet. Now you can get involved. By raising money for a specific event (birthday, race/walk, etc…) you can send people to your own page and have them donate money to the fund of giving everyone clean and safe drinking water.
I have decided to join the fun and have created a page to raise money.

And yes I am serious about this. I hope to run a half marathon sooner than later.
