From Scott Harrison (founder of Charity: Water):
"In preparation for the fall launch of our Water for Schools program, I had the pleasure of traveling to Ethiopia a few weeks ago with four fathers and five of their daughters, ages 9-14. One of the dads, Shawn Budde, has been volunteering as a strategy consultant with charity: water for over 6 months and has been a huge blessing to us. On this trip, I had a surprise for him. I was going to take him and his daughters to a well he'd helped fun through the borninseptember.org campaign. Filming them at the Adiayfela school was one of the high points of 2009. I remember smiling through tears as we saw the handmade signs that read "We love Budde family" and listened to speeches.
I ask you to put yourself in his shoes and imagine the many celebrations around the world you've made possible like this one. I hope this video and Shawn's words will inspire you."
