charity: water

A dear friend of mine introduced this awesome charity to me by making a donation in my name a few years ago, and it's been one of my favorites ever since.

charity: water is a non-profit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. 100% of public donations directly fund water projects (private donors, foundations and sponsors to take care of operating costs, in case you were wondering). A $20 donation can give one person clean water for 20 years.  Awesome.

And in honor of Cyber Monday, I present to you the first of many philanthropic shopping opportunities.  charity: water has teamed up with  GelaSkins to make the perfect stocking stuffers for anyone with a phone, iPod or laptop (profits from the purchase of Gelaskin products will go toward funding charity: water's operation costs).  They also have a bunch of other really cool products from water bottles to hoodies which proceeds go directly toward water projects.  Place orders by Dec. 10 for shipping by Christmas!

What if you're one of those people who would prefer to receive donations this year instead of gifts?  Fundraise for charity: water instead of gifts! 100% of donated money will be used to provide clean drinking water for people in need.

Water.  Whodathunk, huh?


  1. For those of you who shop on Gilt Groupe, they are donating $1 to charity: water when you make a purchase this week!

  2. Any Adrian Grenier fans out there? Check out this tweet he just posted:

    Go to and I will send you an autographed photo for $100 donation and will call you for a brief chat for $250!
