GIVE BACK: DAY 1 – charity: water

Charity Water Banner

Today we are kicking off our annual 12 Days of Giving. The Fresh 20 team curated a list of charities that have personal meaning in one way or another.   I’m proud of this collection. It represents the diversity and generous spirit of our team.  We’re donating $250 a day for the next twelve days.  I hope you’ll be inspired to reach out to an organization in your community no matter how small the offering. Every dollar makes a difference.

Giving Back to Charity: Water


Clean water shouldn’t be a privilege.

Let’s make a difference in kitchen’s all over the world.

Many of us have no idea what it’s like to be thirsty. We have plenty of water to drink and cook.

But many people around the world don’t have that luxury. Yes, luxury. Every day, 1,400 kids die from water-related illnesses before they reach their fifth birthday. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are simple solutions like drilled wells, spring protections and BioSand Filters that help provide clean water to communities around the world.

I started this fundraising campaign to help charity: water build these types of projects around the world, and I’m inviting The Fresh 20 community to help raise funds and awareness to this global issue.

Anything you can give is a huge help. My boys, Aiden and Eliott are breaking into their piggy banks to make a difference. As a family, we are honored to help those without this simple natural resource.

100% of the money will be used to build clean water projects, and when they’re complete, charity: water will send us photos and GPS coordinates so we can see the exact community we helped.
