My experience at charity: water

charity_water_1During the fall of 2011 I worked as a multimedia production intern for charity: water. It was an honor to be selected to work for such an amazing non-profit organization. Charity: water’s donation strategy is one that I think should serve as an example for anyone seeking to begin their own non-profit company.

I ran my own campaign and raised $2,132. Having worked for them and experienced how important water is, I was thrilled to have accomplished this.

With your help, I was able to raise $2,132 for charity: water. I made a brief video ti thank everyone who donated. I really appreciate your generosity and I know the folks in Rwanda will appreciate your generosity even more.

I’m doing much better. I’ve finally got enough stamina to allow me to switch to full-time at work. Not only is the a sign of physical improvement, it also means more income which takes a tremendous amount of stress of my mind.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
