Pledge your birthday

type: Donation, Project
by: Ama Lorenz

Wonder what it’s like to donate your birthday? 63,063 people have already done it. Behind this idea is an non-profit organization that brings clean and safe drinking water to every person in the world: charity: water

The founders Scott Harrison and Kevin Rose see themselves as passionate and determined creative problem-solvers who want to make a difference. They're not offering grand solutions and billion dollar schemes, but instead, simple things that work. Things like freshwater wells, rainwater catchments and sand filters. For about $30 a person, they know how to help millions.

So why not donate your next birthday and help change lives. Have a look at the video and start your own campaign:
