Help 3for5 Give 500 People Clean Water!

This is our vision for the future: that millions of people across the developing world would be able to gain access to safe, clean water for the very first time!

To that end, we aim to raise $10,000 by New Year's Day to help fund our first water project and provide water to more than 500 people in Malawi. It's ambitious, but with your help we can get there.

If you haven't already done so, consider donating $5 for clean water via Every $5 means something incredible for people without clean water.

At the same time, invite 3 friends to join 3for5 with you, and be sure to follow-up with them in a personal way (via phone, email, or in-person) to make sure they have received your invitation.

Last but not least, thank-you for being a part of 3for5--together, we can have incredible impact!

p.s. -- as always, click here to download the 3for5 Friends Handout and give it to your friends when you talk to them. (

Help 3for5 Give 1,100 People Clean Water!

Over the past few weeks, 3for5 has been competing to win $25,000 in the Chase Community Giving contest on Facebook. The idea is simple: the 100 charities with the most votes on Facebook will win $25,000 each!!

The really cool thing is if 3for5 wins, we'll use 100% of the $25,000 to fund clean water projects in the developing world! This would mean clean water for more than 1,100 people—and all it takes is a simple click on Facebook to make it happen.

The contest ends December 11th, so act fast and help us help others with 2 easy steps:

1.) Click here to vote on Facebook.

2.) Help us win this contest by telling your friends (especially on Facebook) about how their vote can help 1,100 people get clean water.

Thanks again for your help!
