8-year-old holds birthday party for water

A quick post to celebrate another one of our great volunteers. Jonah is an eight-year-old boy from Kentucky who decided to fundraise for safe water projects. For his eighth birthday, he sent out invitations to his birthday party requesting donations instead of presents. “My mom gave me $20 and then all of my friends and family gave me $20,” Jonah told me when I asked him how he did it. “The most exciting part was when I heard that I had $250. I thought I was going to raise $100!”
Thanks to his heart and compassion, Jonah will be supporting water projects around the world like our upcoming project in Uganda.
If you’re interested to hold a fundraiser for your birthday, wedding, or other special event, we have online tools and support to help you get started. Check out our Fundraising section for more information.
