My birthday is this month and I’ve been posting information on Facebook about my effort to help Charity:Water ( raise $500.  That’s a drop in the bucket for what they are trying to accomplish but a start.  I was able to hear the founder share his story in October as was moved by what he is doing.  He mentioned a fundraising program they started to “give your birthday to charity:water” and I decided to go along.  If you would like to give, go to this link ( and you can donate and they will send you a tax receipt.  And thank you for considering it.  If you can’t give now, please pray that this will continue to be a successful effort and go to their website to read more about what they are doing.

Grace and peace to you.
