Rod Arnold and Becky Straw of Charity Water are talking at The Feast. Its only 3 years old but they have already acheived amazing things, thanks to participation by an ARMY of talented companies and individuals. Check out the same video we just saw here at YouTube.
Values: Community ownership, financial viability, cultural contextual, comprehensive sanitation, women participation.
Avoiding a lot of big time foundations, Charity Water raised $11million from 60,000 donors. 100% goes to the field and they raise money for their own expenses. They are “restoring faith in charity work.” Donors can view all the projects on Google earth.
Social media has been helpful. They are the first charity to surpass one million Twitter followers. Impressive!
