We live in a world where a lot of us can comparatively say that we are truly blessed! We usually have clean water at our disposal, food to eat, and homes and family to go to at the end of a long day. There are events during the year where we traditionally give and receive gifts to one another: our birthdays, anniversaries, wedding day, etc. Recently, many men, women and especially young children have decided that they have been blessed and want to use their celebration opportunity to give something back to those less fortunate.

So instead of getting birthday gifts, you are committing to giving a gift instead. By partnering with Water IS BASIC, you can ask family and friends to donate the money they would have spent on a gift to your Donate Your Birthday Challenge. When your friends give money to your challenge, they can know with certainty that the money they gift to you will save lives; it will become the GIFT OF LIFE to many men, women, and children in South Sudan who don’t have access to clean water.
