Wow, I can't tell you how incredibly excited I am at the response for thnkwater.com. You saw the need to help people without water and gave selflessly. All I can think about, are the smiles on young children's faces and the grins on the old. This may have been a simple effort on your part, but simply you changed 116 lives. Raising $2333, you sacrificed your pleasures in exchange for a simple gift....water.
After chatting with Charity:Water (the organization responsible for distributing the money to the field), I was informed that projects can take up to 18 months for completion. My hopes are that they're completed sooner. As soon as I receive information regarding the projects you funded, I will quickly get in contact...I can't wait either :) Stay current : Facebook & thnkwater.com
Thanks again for everyone's sacrifice and donations. You are all heroes and I'm pumped for future campaigns. Happy New Year!
Thnk Water is a site developed and designed just so you can donate money to the unfortunate. My name is Chris Webb, and I have a passion for people who have less. While growing up, my dad took my sister and I nearly every week to: nursing homes, homeless shelters, hospitals and other places for the needy. Finally, after many years of contemplating how I could help in my own way, I decided to create Thnk Water. Thnk Water is a streamlined process, where donating is simple. One page, no hassle, no interruptions…just pure giving.
Thnk Water has teamed up with Charity: Water, a mega, philanthropic, charity phenomenon. Charity: Water prides themselves on being transparent about where the money goes (See how the money is divided). Charity: Water is an organization where 100 percent of all donations go straight to the field. Not a dime is spent on the organization. That's why Thnk Water has teamed up with Charity: Water, so we can "cut to the chase" and start changing lives.
