Pledge Your Next Birthday For Clean Water
Blake Mycoskie is the founder and Chief Shoe Giver of TOMS — a brand that has become well-known for transforming everyday purchases like shoes and glasses into a force for good around the world via their One for One model.
Blake has actually been a friend of charity: water's founder, Scott Harrison, for several years. Blake has supported charity: water personally — and has also coordinated a professional partnership.
In 2010, TOMS created two series of limited-edition water project shoes and helped fund three wells in Ethiopia. Last year they were a presenting partner of the charity: ball Waterwalk (which brought clean water to more than 19,000 people in India). They're also launching limited-edition charity: water eyewear this April.
In addition to all of that, Blake has pledged his coming 37th birthday to raise money for clean water projects in India as well.
Here's Blake's profile on Charity: Water.
Ben Crane is a professional golfer living in Dallas. In addition to his work on the golf course, Ben, along with fellow golf buddies Bubba Watson, Rickie Fowler and Hunter Mahan, is part of the PGA boy band, “Golf Boys.”
They have produced two hilarious videos to raise money and awareness for different causes. Their second video, 2.Oh, promoted their campaign with charity: water.
That was Ben's first connection to charity: water, but he has since pledged his coming 38th birthday to raise money for clean water projects as well.
