This has been a busy week on Facebook for birthdays and events. Thank God for Facebook in helping me remember all of my friends' birthdays. As I mentioned in the last post, every September, Charity Water rolls out the September Campaign, giving everyone born during this month a chance to help a developing nation get access to clean water. Well, it was announced this week that Will and Jada Smith have decided to partner with Charity Water this year and donate their birthdays to digging wells and providing clean water to a developing country in Africa. You can participate in two ways, either by donating specifically to their fundraising efforts, or setting up your own birthday campaign and getting your friends and family to donate. The top three fundraisers win a free trip to AFRICA in 2011 with Will and Jada. Let the celebration begin!!!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

One of my favorite things to do is to celebrate the birthdays of my family members and friends. I had the opportunity to celebrate my good friend Amy's birthday last night. Amy is someone who has such a heart for people and ministry especially children. She tirelessly serves others at every opportunity she gets and so it was such a great thing to turn the tables for once and surprise her. It was a great night of laughs and good food. A few years ago, Amy participated in the September Birthday Campaign held by Charity:Water, in which she asked loved ones to donate clean water to an village instead of buying her gifts. Even through we are halfway through September, its not too late to be a part of the September Campaign. If you know of someone born in September or would just like to donate to a worthy cause, check out Charity Water for more information.
