He spent 10 years partying. Now he helps millions access clean water.

Convenient access to clean water is something you may take for granted.

But for 663 million people around the world, the only water available is dirty, diseased, and swarming with bugs.

To put this into perspective:

  • 1 out of every 10 people alive is drinking bad water — that’s equal to TWICE the entire population of the US.
  • Deaths caused by diseases from drinking dirty water kill more people, every year, than any other type of violence — including war. 43% of those deaths are children under five years old
  • Women and young girls are especially suffering, as they’re the ones spending up to 8 hours a day, 7 days a week, collecting water for their families.

Now that you’ve heard the bad, here’s the good news:

The dirty water crisis is a solvable problem.

During a recent MentorBox interview with Scott Harrison, founder and CEO of charity:water, we learned more about his mission to provide clean water to EVERYONE in the world.

Since starting his foundation 10 years ago, charity:water has already helped 6.3 million people get access to clean water.

To recap their progress thus far, they’ve recorded this insanely-powerful video that summarizes their story:

No matter what you’re doing now, I urge you to make an effort to watch charity:water’s incredible story.

In the video, you’ll learn:

  • Why Scott went from selling $500 bottles of champagne to volunteering as a photojournalist in Liberia
  • The tragic events Scott experienced that compelled him to make sure everyone in the world has access to clean water
  • How charity:water went viral and encouraged people of all ages to make a donation

One of the unique ways charity:water stands out, when compared to other charities, is that:

100% of donations are given to clean water.

This means salaries, travel costs, and all other expenses NEVER come from donations. If you decide to donate $30 — then $30 goes to clean water.

In addition to that, after making a donation you can watch where it goes via GPS and Google Maps. Water sensors also track and measure the amount of clean water provided, so you can see where your money goes and stay updated on the lives you’re saving.

Scott’s mission is so important, every donation pledged — up to $50,000 — via the link below will be matched, 1:1.

Most people donate $30 (the amount that provides clean water for one person in need), but every dollar counts. If you can afford to help out more, I encourage you to do so.

If there was ever a time in history where we can work collectively to make sure no one on Earth dies from dirty water, it’s certainly today.
