Pump Run 5K - Join Us

Pump Run

This February 27th, run for those who have to walk. Water to Thrive is hosting the annual Pump Run, a 5K race supporting the mission of providing cleaner, safer water to parts of rural Africa. Every year, millions of people are left without clean water. Education, time, health, and empowerment are just a few of the assets that are forfeited when people do not have access to clean water. 

But by signing up to participate in the Pump Run, either virtually or in person, you can make a difference in this global water crisis. You can be the difference in multiple school girls receiving an education because they no longer have to walk 5 miles to gather water every day. You can be the difference in mothers starting their own businesses or improving their homes since they will have more time and resources to do so. Please consider running for those who walk with jerry cans full of dirty water for their families every day.

Ohhh, SO close!! We're taking #GivingTuesday to a #WaterWednesday conclusion!

So many great gifts came in yesterday, from big to small, some with employer matches, some from spare change, and all so deeply appreciated!

We funded the first #GivingTuesday water project right around lunchtime, and worked hard to get the second $5,000 settled by midnight. Alas, we came up just $520 short.

We can't let hundreds of people in need go without for the lack of $520, so we hereby declare today to be #WaterWednesday and we are going to ask again for your support to bring in this very last bit we need.

Just like yesterday, please give if you can, and spread the word. We know we can do it, and we look forward to inaugurating two new wells with plaques commemorating your amazing #GivingTuesday effort.

Help us find the last $520 for our #GivingTuesday goal!

In the last hour, we received $675 in donations and cut that $1200 deficit more than in half! We are now just $520 away from funding our second‪#‎GivingTuesday‬ water project. It's late, we know, but before you turn out the light, think for a moment about whether you can spare a gift or a share to help us meet this goal and bring clean, safe water to another rural African community in need.

 

It just takes a click to give, a click to share, a click to make a huge difference for hundreds of people. We are SO very close, and we know we can do it because we have you working with us. Thank you so much for‪#‎Giving‬ with us on this ‪#‎Tuesday‬!

 
 

 

So close to our second #GivingTuesday well!

Just a little over three hours left, and we have official numbers through the early evening. Our generous donors have come together to give a total SO FAR of $8,805 today! That fully funds our first Giving Tuesday water project, leaving us $1,195 shy of funding the second.

We are close! You can get us there. Whether the amount is large or small ... we have had both today, and every dollar has made a difference. Please share and give. We deeply appreciate your caring and support!

 

In five more hours, we can build one more well. #GivingTuesday crunch time!

A little more than five hours remain in our #GivingTuesday push and while we have had donations coming in, we are not yet at the point of funding our second well. We know you can help us do this! Give what you can at watertothrive.org/donate, and share this post or another to encourage your social media circle to participate too.

We're getting closer! You can carry us through to a second water project today!

Our first #GivingTuesday well finished! Let's go for two!

We are so blessed to have such amazing supporters! In the last hour, you have given us another $570, which puts us over the goal line for our first well!

Now let's get cracking on well number two! Another $4,100 and we ... YOU ... will have funded two water projects today!

 
 

 

 

Let's finish the first well!

Just a few hours into #GivingTuesday, we are already well on our way to the halfway mark! As of noon, our wonderful supporters had made gifts totaling $4,525.00!
 

At least one of those gifts was made by an employee of a company that matches charitable donations, which gave the total a nice boost. Check with your employer and see if they'll do a matching gift, then go to watertothrive.org/donate and make your donation. We'll send you a receipt, which you can give your employer. It's simple and it doubles your impact!

Your GivingTuesday to-do list: Give money, share news, build wells, change lives

Fundraising

Good morning!  It's #GivingTuesday, and Water to Thrive is celebrating this global day of giving with a special goal of raising $10,000 today! That $10,000 will fund two water projects in rural Africa, bringing the blessing of clean, safe water to 500 people in communities in need.

We hope you will join us, by giving what you can and by sharing the word that we are taking part in this worldwide fundraiser with the good of two wells in mind.

If you would like to give, please go to 
watertothrive.org/donate and make your way through the form. All donations given today will count towards our goal. If you would like to highlight your gift, check the "in honor of" button and put "Giving Tuesday" in the space provided. No amount is too small...if 400 supporters give $25 each, we will meet our goal.

If you would like to help spread the word, follow us on Facebook and Twitter and share our posts with your own friends and followers. We will have Giving Tuesday campaign updates online at various point throughout the day, and at the end of the day, a final report and note of thanks. 

Let your friends know about our mission, and this once-a-year opportunity to make a significant impact. If you would like to gather them together to make an even bigger gift, you can even consider 
starting a Water to Thrive-Giving Tuesday campaign of your own

It's going to be a busy day, and we hope you can help us reach our goal. Once again, we thank you for your financial, emotional, and prayerful support. Together, today, we can build two wells and change 500 lives.
