Adam announces affiliation with new charity!

We wanted to be the first one's to tell you of Adam's brand new partnership with the amazing non-profit charity charity: water.

The charity: water organization was formed four years ago with the goal to help bring clean, safe drinking water to developing nations. To date they've funded 3,811 water projects across the world, providing water for 1,742,331 people in 17 countries. In the four years since inception, charity: water also has raised more than $22 million to run their organization, launch educational campaigns and fund their water projects.

Clean, safe drinking water. It's something that a lot of us take for granted, but almost 1 billion people on the planet (1 in 8 of us) don't have access to it.

Unsafe water and lack of sanitation causes 80% of all diseases and kills more people than all forms of violence - including war. It's also responsible for the claiming the lives of 4,500 children per day.

It's a staggering statistic, especially when you find out $20 can give one person access to safe and clean water for 20 years.

That's why we'd like to encourage you to make a simple donation instead of sending Adam birthday gifts.

Adam has set a personal goal to raise $29,000 by his 29th birthday (January 29th, 2011) and we're hoping to meet and / or exceed his expectations. The $29,000 will provide access to safe drinking water for approximately 1,450 people.

Donating is not a requirement, and we understand if it's something you can't do. In return, we ask you to consider spreading the word about Adam's new cause to your friends and family.

Here are a few important things to know:

100% of donations to charity: water directly contribute to water projects – every cent will be directed to the field, they even pay back credit card costs.
Every water project built from Adam’s campaign will be marked on Google Maps with GPS coordinates when finished in 12-18 months. Every donor will be told exactly where their donation went and can see GPS coordinates and photos.
The average cost of a water project is $5,000 and this will provide sustainable access to clean water to 250 people.
Adam’s goal of $29,000 will provide access to safe drinking water to approximately 1450 people.
Every fan who donates will have their name, donation amount and a comment (if they choose) added to Adam’s mycharitywater.org <http://mycharitywater.org/> page – fans can leave him a birthday wish in the comments.
To learn more about charity: water, visit charitywater.org, follow them on Twitter @charitywater and like them on facebook.com/charitywater.

In Adam's words...

I am so excited to be a part of charity: water and able to give back to those in need. Join me in helping with donations for such a great cause.

My ‘golden birthday’ is on Jan 29th where I will be turning 29!!!! I would LOVE if you would help me donate to this cause as it would be the best birthday gift I could ask for.

Additional information on charity: water

Here is some more information on charity: water:

Their water projects:

On average, the cost of a water project is $5,000 and can give 250 people clean water for over 20 years.
Types of water projects include hand-dug wells, drilled boreholes, rainwater collection tanks, pond sand filters, Biosand filters, spring projections, and rehabilitations of broken water points
charity: water proves each water project, connecting donors with the people they’ve helped by using GPS technology, photography, video and the Internet.
Water changes everything.

Water transforms communities. Preventable waterborne diseases are drastically decreased. Long walks to muddy rivers and swamps are no longer necessary. Time spent collecting water is reduced, offering women a chance to earn an income and children a chance to get an education.
Water empowers women. Water committees are formed with a focus on gender equality; often this is the first time women hold leadership positions within the village setting.
Water creates accountability. Our implementing partners work with the local government to communicate results of the projects. Working with the government increases oversight and monitoring – and helps identify future gaps in water coverage.
Hygiene and sanitation.

Building latrines and handwashing stations also greatly eliminates water-borne diseases and helps protect new potable water resources from contamination.
Every community receives education in proper sanitation and hygiene promotion to reduce the instances of communicable diseases.
How to get involved.

Tell your friends. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter and share the stories with your community.
Launch a fundraising campaign on mycharity: water.
Donate. 100% of public donations directly fund water projects.
