Update #2: I caught my 1,000 passes and thanks to everyone's really, really amazing generosity, we now have a third well and may try for a fourth! P.S. - I turned eleven too.

Update: Thanks to everyone's amazing generosity I have met my goal of one well and we are on our way to a second well. Thanks again for your help.

Hi, my name is Zack. I’m ten years old and I'm raising money to help fund a clean water well. When I was in the third grade and we studied countries of the world, I learned that some people do not have clean water. I really wanted to do something to help. When I was sick a couple of months ago, I couldn’t have water for a day because if I did, I would throw up. That day, I really learned to appreciate water.

It occurred to me that I might be able to raise money by catching footballs because football is my favorite sport. My goal is to catch 1,000 passes by the end of this summer. If 100 people would each give me a penny a pass, ($10) that would be $1,000 - enough to dig a well for people in Asia that don't have access to clean water. But please don’t feel limited to only a penny a pass! You are very welcome to donate more. I appreciate anything you can do to help provide clean water for people who don’t have that blessing.

About Jesus Wells

Read below to learn about where donations go.

Jesus Wells increase the health standards of a village, allowing for children to be nourished and animals to be watered. The wells you provide are located in the village or community, so women and children no longer have to walk hours to find water.

With one well you can save an entire village from waterborne illnesses.

Unlike the dirty water from stagnant ponds, streams or old shallow wells, this water is clean and creates an awareness of good hygiene, leading to fewer medical problems and healthier people.

Come On Everyone, let's support Zack!! Please don't avoid giving cuz you are embarrassed to only give 10.00. When a 1000 people give a measly 10 dollars (equivalent of a couple starbucks coffees) 10 wells are installed and hundreds/thousands are blessed with literal water and with hearing of the greatest Water -- Jesus!

God bless your endeavor to help those less fortunate than us here in the U.S., more importantly, to change their eternal destiny in the process by showing them the love of Christ. The Lord bless you!
