EDIT: Bumping this so more people can see it. 3-5 UG'ers donated so far, and they were very helpful. The goal is $500, and I've raised $240 so far, plus set up a fundraiser in my hometown to further the project. If anyone is willing to donate, that would be fantastic.


After spending over 200 dollars the past few weeks on clothes, spotted cow, and various albums, I've decided I need to stop being such a prick since I really don't need any of thoe things.

With that, I started a fundraiser that brings clean water to poor countries in Africa by building wells in various communities.

6,000 children die from drinking contaminated water every day, and 27,000 die daily from other causes.

I'm in no way doing this to "justify" my recent consumerism, rather, I'm doing it because people need it more than I need all the bullsh.it luxuries that I enjoy daily.

Donate here...

Donate a dollar or donate nothing, it's all okay. Thanks, and thanks to those who have been kind enough to donate so far. They also send you a link that lets you track your donation...They update you one the well your money is being put towards and etc.

1) I've been here since 2003, just a different username....
4) I'm not above anyone else, if anything, far below anyone else. That was simply to keep people from making douche baggy comments like, **** Africa, and etc.

Also, hopefully the link works now...And thanks in advance.

They should just drink beer instead. It worked for every European country when the water was filthy in the Court of King Cholera.

I love that you get to add a personal message to your donation.

Oh, relax. No one's flaming him, and he's already received a donation. That's a success if I've ever seen one.

Hah. I wasn't getting super worked up about it, sorry. It's just that I almost got banned after switching because certain moderators didn't know about it and found out it was me under a new name and it became a big thing. In order to avoid anything like that, I figured I'd clarify.

I already donate £8 a month to the Red Cross. I get paid £600 odd a month, so what's £8? I don't like making people feel bad for them not doing it, but if you got a decent wage coming in each month and you can afford it, there's no reason not to really. But, you've earned you money, what you do with it is your choice

And before I signed the forms for all of this, I made sure my money would be helping the cause and not paying for someone's lunch break.

Yeah, like I'd trust someone from the pit

In fairness, people on 4chan of all places buy people stuff on amazon, and sometimes donate in charity threads.

That's pretty much my feelings on it. I have more than I deserve. May as well help others.

Yeah, I agree. I hope this isn't interpreted as me trying to make people feel bad, if anything I was very self-deprecating. This figure just got brought to my attention today and decided I'd like to do something instead of believing that just being "aware" of these problems was doing something, so I donated and figured I'd then give other people a platform in case they wanted to as well.

I'm going to bump this before I leave for class, hopefully no one minds.

Thanks for the donations. I think 3 of the 4 I've gotten so far have come from here, so thanks guys/girls. Also, thanks for the humorous notes.

Exactly. When you sign up for a donation thing, they usually take your address. So if they could link that to your TV so I don't get those fucking starving kid adverts while I'm eating my tea, that'd be fantastic.
