You know this kid is excited for our World Water Day 24-hour campaign.

…Okay, maybe not since we didn’t send a memo to him, BUT you know he would be.

So help make a kid’s day (or several kids’ day) by joining us on World Water Day by blogging, tweeting, Facebooking, pinning, etc. about the need for sustainable access to clean water — and helping us raise funds to provide this access.

One out of every three water wells in India are broken, and more continue to break down because of a lack of maintenance. Our goal at The Adventure Project is to hire and train local leaders to become mechanics to help fix and prevent breakdowns, helping their communities maintain access to clean drinking water.

On World Water Day, March 22nd, we’re rallying together 250 people to MAKE NOISE on the Internet via their blogs, Tumblrs, tweets, status updates, and Pinterest boards, and to get their circles to give to the cause.

If 250 people can raise $100 each, that would make $25,000 raised for clean water. Even better? The Prem Rawat Foundation is offering to match every donation that comes in by World Water Day, up to $25,000 — which means we have the potential to raise $50,000 in 24 hours!

This means hiring 90 mechanics to provide clean water for over 450,000 people.

450,000 people.

Amazing.

Will you (and your Tumblr/blog/Twitter/etc.) join us for March 22nd?

Here’s a short video highlighting some of the pieces of the event:

"That’s the business of philanthropy: investing in institutions, investing in people. And allowing those institutions and those people to go on to create great innovations, great solutions, and great new ideas for the next century.” - Dr. Salvatore LaSpada, Institute For Philanthropy

Stoves For Haiti - We did it! Thanks, everyone!

We just want to say thank you so much to our supporters in the #StovesForHaiti campaign, which was launched on January 12th to remember Haiti.

We officially ended the campaign this past week (even though donations are still rolling in!), and are excited to say that on our last day, January 31st, we broke our $20,000 goal!

Many, many thanks to all of you who spread the word, raised funds, and sponsored a stove yourself. We could not have done it without your efforts. Thank you for supporting The Adventure Project, and even more thanks for bringing over 1,000 families these revolutionary cookstoves.

And if you’re still interested in giving or having your community give, feel free to do so through the campaign page or through our website at TheAdventureProject.org.

Our partner KickStart named among “Top 100 Best NGOs”!

Last month, our partners at KickStart were listed in Forbe’s Impact 30.

We’re proud to announce them as a top NGO again — but this time in the renowned publication The Global Journal as one of the "Top 100 Best NGOs In The World." It is the first international NGO ranking of its kind, seeking to honor top organizations that exhibit “the power of a great idea, well-executed.”

KickStart was cited for “changing the way the world fights poverty by bringing together the transformative power of technology, the entrepreneurial spirit of the impoverished, and the sustainability of the marketplace and private sector.”

To support the amazing efforts of KickStart or to learn more about how they’re using technology and entrepreneurship to help eliminate poverty in Africa, visit The Adventure Project’s Hunger Program.
