Here’s an excerpt about their mission: Right now, 785 million people on the planet don’t have access clean and safe drinking water. That’s one in ten of us. Our goal at charity: water is simple. We want everyone to have access to clean, safe water in our lifetime. Why did we choose to focus on water? Because we’re on a mission to change everything. And we believe, now more than ever, that changing everything starts with clean water. To watch the video that inspired us, click the link below. It’s 20 minutes long, but we promise it’s worth the investment. It's also important to note that nobody on our team is associated in any way with charity: water and we don't receive any compensation from them.
In 2021, our team supported a charity: water project. 100% of the funds given will go to the project we funded, which is a well with a hand pump in Zimbabwe that will provide clean water to a community of about 150 people. Water projects are permanently marked with a plaque recognizing the group that funded it. In 2022, we want to involve our community – clients, family, friends - in helping fund another project that will bring clean water to 200 people or more. Through charity:water, we have started a community campaign that makes it very easy for anyone to give. Here’s our goal: fully funding a clean water project costs $10,000. We want you, our community, to raise that amount to fully fund a water project. And if we hit that goal? Colorado West Investments will match that amount with another $10,000. Through this group effort, we could provide clean water to more than 400 people who don't currently have access to this precious resource. In the coming weeks, we’ll be sending out a series of emails. We’ll send status updates about the community campaign plus some creative ways to be savvy about giving, regardless of where you give. We hope you'll join us on this journey towards generosity!
