In lieu of gifts, Jake would like to raise money to help bring clean water to the children of Tercha, Ethiopia. Jake's good friends, Tigist and Mihiretu are from this area in Ethiopia and he wanted to help out the country where they came from.
Each year over 250,000 children die each year from diarrhea caused by the water they drink. 80% of all illness in Ethiopia is caused by dirty water. We can help change this for hundreds of people by providing a clean water project in the town of Tercha.
We are teaming up with a great organization, "A Glimmer of Hope". Over the last 10 years they have helped improve the lives of over 2.5 million people by providing clean water, health care and schools. They have an amazing 100% promise that ensures that every single dollar you give will reach the people in Ethiopia. A separate endowment was created that covers ALL overhead operating expenses, and even reimburses the credit card fee so that every penny makes a difference!
We hope you will help us fulfill this birthday wish of Jake's! Once the water project is completed, you can look forward to receiving pictures and information showing exactly how your donation has helped to change lives!
Thank you so much for your support!
