We did it! I was able to reach my Charity Water goal of providing clean water to 41 people for my 41st birthday. Thank you to the following kind and generous people who helped make this happen.

Honestly, going into this I didn’t know if I would reach my goal of getting $820 in donations. However, someone once told me that if you don’t ask, it’s like you are getting a “no” anyway. So, I asked. I asked on Facebook (several times) and I asked on Twitter and people donated.
In addition to donations, people shared in the enthusiasm of the project, told their friends and served as cheerleaders, which was equally as awesome. In the end, my total was $961, more than $100 above my original goal.
So, now it’s time to get on with being 41 years old, whatever that means. Thanks again everyone. I really appreciate it!
