I have long admired charity: water and their innovative approach to giving. Not only are they incredibly transparent, they have created a new model where 100% of donations directly fund their projects. It’s incredible.

The charity: water team recently launched a new project, Water Forward, that taps in to the viral nature of social media to bring clean water to those in need.
