Description

"I don't need birthday gifts this year. I want to raise money for water. I want to build a well for people who don't have water. Did you know that in some places girls have to walk all day to get water for their families? They should get to go to school."

Pearl is 6 years old, in first grade, and would like to raise money to build a well and provide access to clean water for a community that needs it. You can also support her fundraiser by purchasing notecards of her drawings at pearlbuildsawell.com.

Our friend Lorelle posted a really lovely Facebook live video that wonderfully captures Pearl’s spirit.

Any assistance towards Pearl’s goal is so much appreciated! Thank you for supporting a kinder world, full of people who want to help.

About Water4

Water4 recruits and equips exceptional African men and women to end their water crisis in their lifetime. We do this by training and supporting local entrepreneurs in leadership, Bible-based financial stewardship, and community mobilization so they can start their own water well drilling businesses, become local engines of sustainable change, and share the love of Jesus in every community they serve.

Two of my favorite causes to support; water for women and families, and young people making a difference in the world. I have a feeling this is just the beginning....

I remember when I went to visit my family in Mexico. I was 18. They had no water. Everyday they would take buckets and go to the river and get water for the day. Some of my family had to cross a big highway. Others had to walk up a very big hill with the full buckets. Because I was a guest and visiting, they wouldn't let me help. One day I bought my water from the local little store and they were sad because they didn't want me spending my money on that. I know if someone had offered to build them a well it would have meant so much to them. I'm 41 years old and it never occurred to me that I could help. Thank you for giving me and my family the opportunity to be part of this. I look forward to telling my little boy, Gideon, who is now just 2 years old, the story of a girl named Pearl, who built a well because she could. Love, Gloria, and Jack and Gideon Strohm

Pearl, you are such an inspiring little girl. Thank you for being amazing and contributing to the world in your own special way. I wish more people could see that we don't need more things as much as we need to reach out to each other and help in whatever ways we can. Love you!

Sent with Love and luck from Shafter, California. As a farmer, water is important in my life as well, and I applaud you efforts. Anyone who says you are too little to make a difference has never been a tent with a mosquito.
