This is a busy time for the African Well Fund. Our 9th Annual Build a Well for Bono’s Birthday campaign is currently underway and we’re nearing the $1 million mark for total donations raised. In the midst of all this activity, we would like to take a moment to stop and reflect on how we got to this point. We know it’s all because of the amazing and generous support of our donors and volunteers, and we want to hear your stories.
Have you donated to Build a Well for Bono’s Birthday campaigns? Bought AWF T-shirts? Bid in the photo and Got Water? auctions? Volunteered your time? With so many worthy causes vying for your dollars, what compels you to give to AWF?
If you’re interested in telling your story, drop us a note at and we’ll send you a short questionnaire to help you get started. In the coming weeks and months we’ll be featuring donor and volunteer stories on our website and Facebook page. If your story is featured, we’ll send you an AWF water bottle.
Because of your support over the last nine years, AWF has been able to fund 273 projects in 14 nations, benefiting more than 316,000 people.
