Water for People is an organization I started to support in December of 2011. Here is an info-graphic they just released regarding a small legacy history of failed water solutions and their implementation program to end the poverty of water.
The reason I chose to start supporting WFP; they are a international organization spanning more continents than just Africa. For every dollar raised, .83 cents of that dollar makes it to the country for program implementation. They have been rated as a 4 and 5 star charity by sources like charitynavigator.org.
I've started my campaign to raise $10,000 for the 'Water for People' organization. I joined their World Water Corps team and Crowdrise fundraising page in order to make this goal possible. Please click the link ^^ above ^^ to donate to my mission. For every $1,000 raised, I will choose what country the money goes to. For every $5,000 raised, I will choose what region of the country the money goes to. Eventually at the end of 2012, I will be on my way to that country as a program volunteer for 2 weeks. Note: I am open to donating to any country, but I'm initially interested in providing my volunteer service to the follow places:
- Dominican Republic
