Game Quitters has partnered with E.P.I.C. (Everyday People Initiating Change) to build a clean water well in Tanzania, Africa.
In October 2016 I will be heading to Tanzania to oversee the project and ensure it’s a success. Below you will find the full details of the trip, including why it’s important and what the impact will be.
I just want to quickly say how excited I am, and that this is another step closer to fulfilling the vision we have for Game Quitters – to bring a community of people together to make a positive difference in the world.
We need your support to make it happen, so click here to support our mission of bringing clean water to Tanzania.
Why I’m involved:
A few weeks ago I traveled to Tijuana, Mexico on a Sunday to help paint a home for a deserving family, and the impact blew me away.
This family told me in tears about how their dream was to have a home for their five kids, but they would have never been able to earn enough money to afford it – even though they work hard.
Yet, here they were, with a new home for their family, thanks to the support of a foundation and a few strangers who cared.
The truth is, I’m privileged that this was just a Sunday I took off work to make a difference for someone else. But to them, this was their life dream realized.
Their kids no longer had to sleep in the cold, on dirt floods with the wind keeping them up all night. They finally had a home, with a kitchen table and bunk beds. The joy I saw as tears flowing down their face is something I will never forget.
Now we have a chance to do something special, in Tanzania, Africa!
What’s the impact?
Imagine waking up this morning to brush your teeth, but instead of turning on a faucet with safe and clean water to use, you dump your toothbrush in a bucket full of bacteria, mosquitoes and dirt.
That’s the reality of 1.1 billion people in the world who do not have access to safe and clean water. Contaminated water isn’t just gross, it also leads to diarrhea, the leading cause of child death in the world. More people die each year from unsafe water than from all forms of violence, including war.
We have the power to change this!
Each well provides water for about 500 people for 20 years, and we’ll also provide hygiene and sanitation education to the youth and women of the village in order to help ensure the projects sustainability.
This will make a real and lasting difference for people who deserve our support.
Our goal is to raise $5,000 total.
The first $3,000 will go directly to E.P.I.C. for our share of the water well, including materials, testing, labor, implementation, training and maintenance.
A tax deductible receipt is available for the first $3,000 pledged.
The additional $2,000 will go towards helping to cover my flights there and back, and to purchase a new camera to document the trip for our YouTube channel – to further spread awareness and inspire other leaders to take action themselves.
On a personal level, this trip will help me become a better leader, to further my mission of positively impacting 10 million people in the next three years.
We can’t do it alone and we need your support! Together we can make a difference.
Thank you for your support!
