An Update on our Water Campaign

Remember this post & campaign?  I was blown away by all of the support that came in for Scout & Nimble’s clean water campaign through charity: water and I don’t know a better time of year to reiterate a HUGE thank you to all of you who donated, prayed, and made a difference.

You wanna know where our money is right now??? Map highlighting Ethiopia and Nepal

That’s right! I just got an update from charity: water and they are putting our dollars to work on water projects in Ethiopia & Nepal.  We will know more details of exactly where our funds went within these countries down the road…remember we are still fairly early in our journey.

One of the reasons I choose to work through charity: water is that 100% of public donations are used to fund clean water projects.  (All the overhead costs are covered by foundations, sponsors, and donors who choose to help with operational funding.)  So that means all the money we raised back in March goes directly into the field.  It’s pretty amazing.  I’ll definitely keep you up to date as I hear more.  And if you want to see what charity: water is all about, you can learn more about their mission here!
