Well Actually Done

with 72 comments

Almost two years ago, we raised enough money to pay for the construction of a well. I’m proud to announce we just received proof that our well is complete! Actions speak louder than words and while we didn’t dig this well, it was our action that made it possible.

You can view our project report on Charity:Water to see more detailed information about the well we sponsored. Our contributions were more than enough to fund our well, so we are actually co-sponsors on a second well too!

Needless to say, our accomplishment brings a massive smile to my face. Best. Website. Community. Ever.

Well done!

with 212 comments

We did it!

Together we’ve raised enough to fund the construction of a clean water well and then some. It took us just over 5 months, but the effects will be long-lasting. Congratulations and much thanks to everybody who helped by spreading the word, buying a shirt or donating directly. We got loads of orders in the last two days and that helped push us over the top.

Our part is done, but the hard work of actually building the well is only beginning for our friends over at Charity: Water. A well takes about 12-18 months to build, but once it’s completed it will provide over 250 people with clean drinking water for 20 years. If you are interested in following the progress of the well, I will try to post regular updates here on the blog.
