As many of you probably know, Alyssa’s birthday is only seven days away! On her twitter account, Lyssa has shared her birthday wish: and you can contribute! Her hope is to raise $38,000 to fund clean water projects in developing countries – and she has already raised $11,585 so far, by getting donations from more than 60 fans. Now you can contribute as well – head over here for more information 😀

Alyssa’s words: It’s that time of year again! I have everything I need. All I want for my Birthday is to fund clean water projects in developing nations.  Water-borne illness is the second highest cause of childhood death in the world. When water is unsafe and sanitation non-existent, water can kill.
Last year, from my charity: water Birthday campaign (http://mycharitywater.org/Alyssa_B_Day), 1,419 people donated and together were able to raise $92,568 to bring clean water to almost 5,000 people. Needless to say, this was an overwhelming achievement that I could not have done without you. I still get weepy just thinking about it. The icing on the cake was this video from one of our wells in Ethiopia: http://www.alyssa.com/blog/best-birthday-present-ever/

Will you help me again this year bring clean water projects to those who need it? Thank you for reading and considering a donation. And if you can’t donate, I totally understand… please just help me spread the word.
I beyond appreciate it and you.
Peace, Light, And Love,
Alyssa.
