Great Charity - No Haircut, No Shave FOR WATER!

My Dear Friends,

Brianna over at A Life... has a friend that is helping bring clean water to those who need it....rather than let me explain, here are Tres's own words:

In Tres's words...

Right now, almost a billion people on the planet don’t have access to clean, safe drinking water. That’s one in eight of us. Unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation cause 80% of diseases and kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war.

So why me? Why help? I want my story to be different. I want my story to have meaning beyond Alabama. Water is simple, and without it we die. So what can you do to help me? For $20 you can give one person water for 20 yrs. But Im not even asking for that much, whatever you can give (more or less). Everything given goes straight to this cause and 100% of the money goes to build a well.

I'm trying to raise $1000 for charity: water. I believe I can do this with your help. To help motivate, I am not shaving or cutting my hair for the duration of my campaign (2 months and 24 days). Why? Because I grow a terrible neck beard that looks terrible and my hair gets thick and wavy and looks stupid...it's not about me though, I'm wanting to humble myself and every day I wake up and look and the mirror and want to do something about the way I look, I will be reminded that I am doing something that is not about looks but far greater.

Please help me. Be part of my story. Make it your story.

Who wants to help?  Every little bit counts, you guys, and what a great way to help it is!  Donate here if you want to help out!
