I hooked up with charity: water for the second Golf Boys video with Hunter, Bubba and Rickie. We’ve had a lot of fun making the Golf Boys videos and we hope you enjoy them, too. As a group, we were clear that one our our primary goals behind making fun videos on YouTube is to raise awareness for causes we believe in. In this case, we chose to partner with charity: water to fight the clean water crisis.
Imagine if you had no clean water. Imagine walking 5 hours (almost as long as it takes me to play a round of golf) to the nearest river to collect water for your family — water that’s not even clean. Imagine giving that water to your kids.
While this might seem unimaginable to us, it’s a reality for 800 million people in developing countries. Every day, 5,000 kids die from water-related illnesses before they reach their 5th birthday. It doesn’t have to be that way. There are simple solutions like drilled wells, spring protections and BioSand filters that help provide clean water to communities around the world.
We started a fundraising campaign to help charity: water build these types of projects around the world. We’re donating 100% of the proceeds from Golf Boys “2.Oh” to charity:water.
100% of the money we raised through iTunes, advertising and donations from the Golf Boys videos were used to build clean water projects. We’re honored by your support of Golf Boys and charity: water. It’s amazing the difference that you were able to make.
Here’s a video detailing some of the work that charity: water is doing in India:
