I'm 14 years old and I'm a student at St. Michael's Association for Special Education, the only special needs school on the Navajo Reservation serving kids my age.
Our tap water is black and stinky and it's not safe for us to drink. My classmates and I made this video to show you our water and ask for your help!
My school spends thousands of dollars on bottled water every year. We have to move the big bottles from building-to-building in wagons.
With your help, we can build a system to bring clean running water to our school. Please donate what you can!
We believe in transparency. 100% of every donation goes directly to the project.
There are 26 classrooms, group homes and offices on campus. Bring clean water to a whole building!
$55 / MONTH
Twelve monthly gifts will cover the cost to bring clean, running water to one student at St. Michael's!
Give any amount and we'll put your name and special message on the school bulletin board!
We met our goal, but there's more to do!
Every additional dollar you donate will be put into the 'St. Michael's Fund' to support other schools, families and communities in the U.S. facing similar water problems.
It's simple to get started, and every penny you raise will help Brianna and her classmates get clean water.
Most of my classmates are medically fragile. We need pure, clean water to bathe, drink, clean our medical equipment, and prepare our meals.
Our friends at DigDeep will build us a water treatment system so that our sinks, showers and toilets all have safe water.
Step One: DigDeep installed five FloWater purification machines in key classrooms to provide safe water in the short term.
Step Two: DigDeep will design and install a campus-wide purification system and replace contaminated plumbing.

DigDeep is the only non-profit working to ensure that every American has clean water, forever.
They help families, communities and schools (like St. Michael's!) get clean, running water. They've been working on the Navajo Nation since 2013.
My students are vulnerable. I think it’s shocking that THEY DON'T HAVE access to clean water.
