Donate $9 for Water Charity

I just finished reading an article on Yahoo! Donations pour in for 9-year-old’s clean water cause after tragic accident, a 9 year old girl named Rachel Beckwith asked family and friends to donate money to raise $300.00 for her water charity project instead of receiving a gift for herself. She only raised $220.00 by the time of her birthday. Her birthday was June 12, she died last week in a 13-car accident on I-30 Bellevue, Washington.

Most of us talk about changing the world and making a difference but we act slowly on it, this 9 year old girl lost her life yet in her short life she is making this world a better place. She is my new inspiration. I admit that there is a slight possibility that I will not donate for a cause like this because I am cautious about internet fraud. But this project is so amazing, I made an exemption. I willed my mind to stop thinking that this might be a hoax or an elaborate scheme to get money out of people.

Rachel's message about this charity.

On June 12th 2011, I'm turning 9. I found out that millions of people don't live to see their 5th birthday. And why? Because they didn't have access to clean, safe water so I'm celebrating my birthday like never before. I'm asking from everyone I know to donate to my campaign instead of gifts for my birthday. Every penny of the money raised will go directly to fund freshwater projects in developing nations. Even better, every dollar is "proved" when the projects are complete, and photos and GPS coordinates are posted using Google Earth. My goal is to raise $300 by my birthday, June 12, 2011. Please consider helping me.

Thank you so much!!!
