We’d like to introduce you to Mia. Don’t let her small size and age on paper fool you, she’s a competitive 8 year-old swimmer and world changer. Mia’s making a big splash to change lives.
We heard from Mia because she wanted to give her eighth birthday away so that others kids like her can have safe water for life. As she said, “I think it’s important that everyone has clean water to drink.”
Suddenly, her eight-year old birthday pool party was about more than splashing around and blowing out candles. Rather than having her friends bring birthday presents to her party, Mia encouraged her guests to donate to Water Missions International. Her impact didn’t end there.
Mia told her friends about the work of Water Missions International and the importance of safe water. At her party, they put together a handmade book of drawings for us explaining why safe water is important, how they feel glad to help give safe water to others, and to say thank you to Water Missions International for the work being done all over the world. We were blown away when we heard about Mia’s party and received the book they made.
We’re so grateful for kids like Mia and parents who partner with their kids to empower them to impact the world for others. Together, we can transform lives through safe water. With kids like Mia on board, we know it’s just a matter of time and movement until everyone has access to safe water.
Did we mention that Mia has become so passionate about providing safe water for life for other kids like her that she has now committed to making a monthly gift? Mia just became our youngest ‘Thirst Quencher’ through our monthly giving program. We’re grateful to have a partner like her in the work that we do.
You’re inspiring, Mia. We have big hopes for your year ahead and we’re thrilled to be part of your story, sweet friend!
There are so many ways to get involved with Water Missions International. We’re seeing passionate people use their resources to support our work, and we are so grateful! We’ve got new college friends forming campus groups, folks hosting walk for waters in their own town, and kids selling hot chocolate so that they can donate to Water Missions International.
From giving away birthday presents, to making YouTube videos and including Water Missions International on wedding registries, we love to see the creativity you all are employing to bring other people all over the world safe water for life. If you’d like to host your own event or create a campaign for safe water, check out our fundraising pages. We’d love to help you get started!
