Start a New Easter Tradition

I saw these e-cards over on the “Water is” blog, it seems like a good opportunity to give a little back and raise awareness. You can view all the e-cards on the Charity website. Scott Harrison, Charity founder, decided to “bail out” of his fast paced NYC lifestyle and dedicate one year to a humanitarian mission. He started Charity which is focused on water issues for its first project. By the numbers-

  • In 5 months they have raised $550,000
  • Responsible for 71 new and rehabilitated wells
  • Those wells supply water to 100,000+ people

Scott on his motivation – “The dictionary defines charity as simply the act of voluntarily giving to those in need. The word comes from the Latin ‘caritas,’ or simply, loveIn service really comes freedom…the more I was concerned about myself and how much money I could make, the unhappier I became…”

    Current TV featured Charity and in the video it is clear Scott Harrison has an authentic desire and was clearly moved by what he saw. Check it out the video shown on Current TV.
