I traveled to Kenya with WaterAid and witnessed firsthand the struggle those living without access to clean water endure. Over the last 12 years, I have seen how Collega + Aveda Earth Month has changed tens of thousands of lives by supporting WaterAid and clean water projects throughout eastern Africa.
It is truly inspiring to see how our support is transforming communities, however, our work is not done. Worldwide, 844 million people lack access to safe water. This is not acceptable and I am determined to make a change.
I am personally committed to raising $25,000 for Earth Month this year. This can change the lives of 1,000 people forever by offering access to clean, safe water.
My fundraising goal is ambitious, but I know we can do it. Just $100 can provide a family in Madagascar with clean water for life. I encourage you, my friends and family, to make a donation to this truly important campaign.
As part of my initiatives to help end the water crisis, I have created a photobook called One Life, which is a collection of photos I took in Kenya during my time with WaterAid. With every purchase of One Life, one person will receive clean water for life.

I can't thank you enough for your support.
