a wholehearted thank you from me and charity:water!


In 2012 we set out to raise $15,000 for clean water. Through the sales of Daring Greatly t-shirts and Wholehearted Parenting Manifestos we raised $17,353. In 2013, we dedicated the remaining t-shirt and manifesto stock to raising $5000. As of today, we’ve officially raised $5383.

charity:water’s 100% model means that every dollar that we raised is going directly to the field to fund water projects.

A huge, wholehearted thank you to everyone who donated and purchased t-shirts and manifestos! Our 2013 campaign will be open until April 2014 if you’d like to make a donation. We also a few t-shirts left here!

Here’s to a generous and loving 2014!

  9. Awesome well done on the noble work of raising funds. I am from Dar es salaam Tanzania and a Rotarian. We work with giving water to schools in Dar. So far we have given 22 public schools drinking water and these schools did not have a drop of water. Please have a look at our website and in case if you need a place to give support would be happy to give you more information.

    We do various projects all volunteers in our free time – currently we are in the process of equipping the only university in Dar es Salaam with 20,000 students a Enterpreneurship and Resource centre.

    You are my guru and read all that you write and practicing your concepts
