Ethiopian Boy Fetching Water

Clean Water For Ethiopia

Kara Markine
Amount Raised
Fundraising Goal $5,000.00

My Message

Going into year 4 of the run we are dreaming big. We are hoping to have raised a total of $250,000 after all is said and done (4 years total) which means our dream big goal for 2018 is $75,000. I believe it can be done.  

100% of every dollar donated goes towards our sponsor village, Chano Dorga, and will be put towards their clean water project. 100%! Every bit adds up and every dollar is important to the men, women and children I have met and hugged and promised and celebrated with in Ethiopia.

I know there are so many wonderful things to support these days, and I am so glad we all have our passions. How else could we raise awareness and funds for the things dear to our hearts?!

If you have considered donating to this cause, I thank you!   There have been many hours, many emails sent, many follow up emails sent :), many phone calls, many late nights, a lot of love, some tears, sweat, laughs, and meetings put into the planning of this event. It is going to be GREAT! We are in the final stretch! I love the people I have met in Ethiopia. I have seen first hand the difference your dollars make.

When you are living to survive the day, you can not dream. 

One of the most memorable things I have ever heard was on a hillside in of the village women was asked...

"How has this water system changed your life?"

Her answer? 

"We can now dream of a future for our children."

Please help us help the people in Chano Dorga realize their dreams.

What a wonderful thing to gift a person, a family, a village. It is not only is the reality of a future. ❤️💦

Thank you friends for your continued support. Your love, your prayers, your words of affirmation, your hugs, your money. It is not about any one of us. It is helping others attain their goals, and "their" goal happens to be clean water. They know it leads to SO.MUCH.MORE.

Thanks for considering ❤️
