This is so exciting!
Back in 2014, I put together a campaign to raise money for a group which provides sustainable drinking water in places of need. Charity Water is a charity based in the United States devoted to ending the world's water crisis.
I wrote about Charity Water back in March of this year. One of the things I love about Charity Water is there business model involves using 100% of donations for projects (they raise administration fees from private donors.) When a project is finished they send donors a report showing exactly how their money was used.
My campaign involved asking for donations and in return I sent all the donors paintings of mine.
This week I received a report stating the project was complete. These are the details:
- The donors and I raised $1,110.
- The money was used to send a drilling rig to a community called, Kombori Kouna in Mali.
- A well was dug and a pump built.
- The local community has been trained in maintaining the well physically and financially.
- A community of 259 people have clean local drinking water easily accessible.
This is a photo of the well.
And this is where it is located.
Charity Water is a truly wonderful organization. I truly believe in the work they are doing.

My thanks to everyone who contributed back in 2014. I am very grateful.
