Create your own online fundraiser to help the children in the world who need it most – by providing things like clean water, Bibles, disaster relief support, livestock, and other things that make a serious difference to children in poverty. You can fundraise in all kinds of fun and easy ways! Ask for donations instead of birthday gifts. Host a bake-off or a running challenge for your friends. Whatever you enjoy doing, you can turn that into a life-giving activity with your own Act for Compassion campaign.

Every day, more than 3,800 children in the world die from easily preventable water-related diseases, including cholera and typhoid. But safe, clean water can change that. YOU can change that. Create an Act for Water fundraiser to help provide a source of safe water to children and their families! Safe water and improved sanitation help children stay healthy, remain active in school and focus their energy on overcoming poverty.
