Last October for my birthday, a lot of you donated to Charity: Water to help raise money for two new water drilling rigs in Tigray, Ethiopia. I am still in awe of how many of you participated and gave your hard-earned money to the cause. I can’t thank you enough. 

The first of the two rigs broke ground drilling its first well in Merara Village on February 28, 2012. Hours into the drill, it hit a massive aquifer of pure ground water. Now each rig will go on to drill 80 new wells, and together they’ll change 80,000 lives – every single year for the next 15 years! 

Thank you, again, to everyone who helped out by donating and spreading the word about this amazing charity to your friends on-line.  In a world that can at times foster so much hate, it’s wonderful to be a part of something like this.
