Water Project

Hi, my name is Jace Lundstrom and I am conducting a fund-raising project with 4 other classmates. Our goal is to raise $3,500 in the next 8 weeks for a water purification system to the people of Zambia, South Africa. We are doing many different things to raise money in our group including collecting cans, bagging groceries, and contacting business like yours for donations/can collecting.

Here are some facts about unsafe water:

-1 billion people lack access to safe water.

-Contaminated water is the #1 cause of death in developing countries.

-Approximately 3 children die every minute from unsafe water and lack of sanitation.

I have attached a brochure on Newlife International with their website for more information.

Can you help us in this great fund-raising opportunity?

Thank you for helping us reach our goal,

Jace Lundstrom

Checks can be made out to

Jace made his first presentation today and it was a success! He went to the neighborhood Bar and Grill and the Manager was quite impressed with him. He actually told me he didn't leave it open-ended either. He actually asked the Manager if he could count on him for a 2-500 dollar donation. I'm amazed! "Do Hard Things" has proved to be a great class!
