This year, we’re focusing on a different kind of generosity.
#Giving Tuesday | 'Don't focus on riches, but on being rich with many people' - Helen Apio
Today is #GivingTuesday. And we are asking you for zero dollars.

Nothing. Zilch. Nada.

Instead, we simply want to thank you for being part of the charity: water family. Showing up here—reading this email, choosing to be part of our community of supporters—is a different kind of generosity. It’s one we learned about from our friend Helen Apio.

Helen was a teacher. A leader. An unstoppable force for good. And even though she is no longer with us, her legacy continues to grow in the lives of her chosen family: her community in northern Uganda.

We recently visited Helen’s community, and every person we spoke to had stories to tell about the way her life had impacted their own.
'I feel deep in my hear that what Helen taught me caused a lot of changes in my life' | 'I am healthy today because of Helen''
One story stood out from the rest. A man named Richard shared some advice Helen once gave him, advice that Helen certainly embodied herself:

“Don’t focus on riches, but on being rich with many people.”

Helen’s wise words and the way she lived her life remind us a lot of you. With you, we feel the warmth of “being rich with many people.” You are truly one in a million, a unique part of a vast community that has come together to end the water crisis and practice generosity in countless ways.

We are incredibly grateful for you, and for all you do. Thank you for being such a special part of our charity: water family.
