After learning about the Carry5 Walk for Water, we decided to put together a good old fashioned family fundraising competition. We registered for the event and, with the help of a better than expected tax return and the support of friends and family, were able to reach our goal of $5,000 – enough to sponsor a community water point in Gonbisa Kussaye, Ethiopia.

Our goal was to create lasting change. After doing our research, we realized that Water1st provided us the best opportunity to make a difference in the quality of life for the greatest number of people. We are really proud to be part of Water1st!
