King’s Ransom Foundation offers a $25,000 match to help bring Haitian children safe drinking water
Best-selling author and public speaker Dani Johnson and longtime charity partner King’s Ransom Foundation are at it again. Less than a month ago, they rallied support to raise more than $200,000 for Belizean orphans. This month they have started a new campaign with the charity Do Much Good to raise money for international relief agency Food For The Poor. Their focus is to provide clean water for the children of Haiti.
Johnson has been calling for Haitian aid since the devastating 2010 earthquake and continues to lend support. Haiti is one of the poorest nations in the western hemisphere, and the main causes of death in the country are typhoid, cholera and diarrhea - all caused by waterborne illness.
King’s Ransom Foundation has offered a $25,000 match to help bring the children of Haiti safe drinking water. Dollar for dollar, every contribution will be matched, up to $25,000. The goal is to purchase water purification systems for three of the most remote towns in Haiti. The new systems would pump more than 10,000 gal of clean water per day.
Individuals interested in supporting the cause can donate at the Food For the Poor website or visit King's Ransom Foundation for more information and more places to give.
