For her upcoming 30th birthday, actress Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Couples Retreat) is doing something pretty cool. As a birthday present in her honor, Ms. Bell, who will turn 30 on July 18, 2010, is asking her friends and fans alike for the same gift: to make a donation to MyCharityWater.org. Her goal is to raise at least $100,000 over the next 3 months for the cause.
The purpose of MyCharityWater is to fund “clean water projects in developing countries”. 100% of the received donations will be used for funding the projects. If you wish to make a donation, you may either do so anonymously, or you may have your name and the amount of your gift shown on the donations list on Kristen’s main page. A suggested donation of $30 is listed, but you may donate any amount, as little as $1. So far, she has raised over $1500 - and she’s only been at it 6 hours.
