When I asked people to support the 38 for my 38th birthday campaign, I also promised something: All supporters who donated to the campaign get to view a never-before-seen video of me that I prefer not to release in public under normal circumstances.
Well, I figure that supporters deserve that kind of thank you at the very least. At least I get to squirm for a good cause. 🙂
To give all the wonderful birthday campaign supporters a sneak peak of what they'll see once the campaign is over, here's a special trailer I created:
And, as an update: As of this writing, we now have raised $442 in less than one month! Hooray! This means that there will be 22 people served with safe, clean water, thanks to the following people's generosity:
So yes, thank you all for your generous support! Also wish to say thanks to all who Tweeted/RTd, Liked/Shared on Facebook, etc. Getting the word out also helps!
If you want to join this fantastic group of supporters who will get to view the rest of that video trailer, please consider supporting the 38 for my 38th birthday campaign today.
To reach the target of 38 people served, we only need $333 more. So, all donations - whatever the amount - would be welcome!
In the words of supporter, colleague, and friend Adam Geniusz, here's his reason for supporting this cause (published with permission):
I really like your b'day and fundraising combination. It is obviously well thought of and wise. Also, since it's my daughter's b'day you caught me extra responsive to such initiatives [:D]
In addition, water and sanitation is something that is absolutely essential to any other development work anywhere in the world, so it was more than natural to win me for this (besides of the daughter b'day reason [:-)] .
Thank you for that Shai and I wish all the best for your birthday (btw - i don't believe you are 38!).
Impressive and inspiring!
Support 38 for my 38th and give the gift of clean, safe water.
