I joined the RipplAffect Board as Treasurer in September 2018 when we were organizing as a nonprofit. As a pragmatist, I felt that the concept of providing affordable filtration devices was a no-brainer. Most of us in the affluent United States could certainly forgo a dinner out in order to provide a family with a tool that can potentially save their children’s lives.

Donating money to charity doesn’t often solve poverty. It typically can only help in the short term. What I like about RipplAffect is that they are solving long term health issues that can lead families OUT of poverty. This is my favorite kind of charity to support, and I have added it to my annual giving plans.

I just wanted to reach out and say Thank you for opening my eyes on this issue and I shared on Facebook and even passed RipplAffect to my church/preschool that myself and my children attend hopefully we can do our part to help this great cause! I think this program and the message is wonderful. Thank you so much!

Clean water, something that we take for granted in the western world is an everyday struggle for many in developing countries. Clean water one could argue is a basic human right. RippleAffect is an effective charity that delivers clean water, health and hope to many. I support RippleAffect as I have witness tangible long lasting ripple consequences that water filter systems can deliver.

I love RipplAffect. This charity supplies a basic human necessity that helps people build their lives on. The water filters RipplAffect give out will continue to provide clean water for a family for a decade! That’s the kind of impact I want to leave behind.

Over the years my family has sponsored and I have participated in a number of medical missionary projects with small and large teams. … Once we came back, we wondered what would happen to the children, young mothers and ailing older people we left behind. RipplAffect, is different. We know that what we have done, has changed the lives of many into the future. Thanks for making a difference!
