On March 22nd Amy and I are co-hosting an event in conjunction with The Thirst Project for World Water Day. We have supported the life changing work that Thirst Project does for over 6 years now.
We had the great pleasure of taking a trip to Africa last summer with another amazing organization, Kids Play International. There, we saw families, including elderly women and young children, carrying jerry cans full of water and walking 4+ miles just to bring clean water home every day. It affected us profoundly, and we thought why don’t we do a fundraiser in LA – a hike up Griffith Park carrying a 40 lb jerry can – to literally step into the shoes of people in other parts of the world. We also wanted to make a visual impact. Having a large group of people carrying jerry cans in an urban metropolis is sure to bring awareness and influence those who witness the event. We have some influencers and celebrities participating and expect to have news coverage of the event.
We’re looking for 44 brave souls to join us on the 22nd and each raise $250 in sponsorships so that we can raise enough to build a freshwater well in Swaziland for a community and change lives there for generations.

OR check out our Ebay auction! Our friend Hadley Hodgkin generously donated 2 GA Coachella passes with Shuttle access for Weekend 2. 100% of the proceeds will go towards building clean water wells in Swaziland!
Together we can do BIG things. Thank you for your generosity, and stepping up to the challenge!
