charity: water
Every Person in New York
Poll: Bill O'Reilly

Here is a statistic that we can not shake: 663 million people on the planet do not have access to clean drinking water.

It can't be true but it is true. That's 1 in 10 people around the world.

Scott Harrison went from Manhattan nightclub promoter to charity: water founder, after a sea change that actually took place at sea, aboard one of the Mercy Ships, and after time spent in Liberia.

His goal and the goal of charity: water is to bring clean drinking water to people in developing nations. It's not a great technological challenge. Just a human one: the collective will to do it. To that end, you can make a donation, start a fundraising campaign, or support a community, or shop in their store.

Charity Navigator gives them four stars, its highest rating. For their part, charity: water promises that 100% of public donations directly fund water projects.

It was exactly ten years ago that charity: water funded its first clean water project. Keep it flowing.

Jason Polan started Every Person in New York in March of 2008. He plans on working on the project until it is finished. Look for more at Jason's site and his book Every Person in New York.
