HELLO FAMILY, FRIENDS, MOMS, DADS, BOYS, GIRLS, AND ANYONE ELSE WHO RECEIVES THIS:
Thank you for visiting my page. My name is Tyler and I AM MAKING A STAND! I know that clean water saves lives. Every day more than 4,000 children die of water-and sanitation-related diseases. I want to show GOD'S love to a hurting world. I want to do something for them. Something life changing. And I would like you to join me. Giving to the Clean Water Fund will help bring clean water, sanitation, and hygiene to communities. This will help cut child deaths by more than half! Your gift of clean water will also help save children the suffering caused by parasites, worms, dysentery, and diarrhea. Plus, they will be able to attend school, because they will not have to spend their days sick in bed or walking long distances to collect water.
I have been on a mission since September 2011. It all started one day when the mailman delivered The World Vision Gift Catalog. I took the magazine to bed with me and read it from cover to cover. I could not believe people did not have clean water to drink. It comes straight out of my faucet! Not having clean water was hard to imagine. I knew I wanted to do something for these children and families. My heart was very sad. I decided the next day that I was going to "MAKE A STAND"! God put the passion to provide CLEAN WATER to people on my heart. The project is ongoing and forever evolving with new ideas and big dreams.
I collect recyclables in my neighborhood and at school, make and sell "BLING" BRACELETS 4 LIFE, have had several Lemonade AND BLING stands, as well as, Hot Cider stands during the colder months. I continue to be EXCITED to see what GOD DOES! I had an amazing opportunity this summer to partner with my church, Bayside, during their Breakaway summer camps. I was able to share my passion with a ton of kids and sell hundreds of my BLING bracelets. Close to $9000 was raised at the summer camps. I am going to talk with my principal again to see if I can start a school wide recycling program. All the proceeds would go to providing CLEAN WATER.
To date over $13000.00 has been raised. A lot of lives have been saved. God is GOOD!
I am planning my MAKE A STAND events for Holiday time and just started collecting recyclables again in my class.
Every gift you give will make the world a healthier, happier place. Plus, every donation is tax deductible. I am grateful for your support and will keep you informed of the progress we are making together. Please join me in changing the world for children in need!
