We helped bring water to 850 people

Last year, I asked people to forgo birthday presents and instead help me raise money to help fund project to provide clean drinking water to communities in developing nations. Together, we raised nearly $600.
I received an email with an update on where our money went. We have helped fund two projects in Ethiopia, Edagabir Village and Mai Kumel Village, both of which were completed this month. Because of your decision to help me raise this money, we have helped 850 people have access to clean, fresh, easily accessible water.
Be sure to check out the individual project pages to see where your exact donation went to.
Thank you everyone for making this possible. This gives me a happy heart.

I live in Lethbridge with my spouse and 4 of our 6 children. I’m a writer, focusing on political news, social issues, and the occasional poem. My politics are radically left.

I’m also dichotomally Mormon. And I’m a functional vegetarian: I have a blog post about that somewhere around here. My pronouns are he/him, and I’m queer.
