News - A Meaningful Milestone
by Life Positive
Josh Hofing is only 13 but chose Charitywater for a social action project for his Jewish coming-of-age ceremony because "I know the money is actually going to go to what I want it to go to. It's not going to a big, combined project. It's going to my own project."
For months before his September bar mitzvah, he followed construction of a well in Ethiopia on the group's website, and was able to describe it as he sold black rubber Charitywater bracelets in a park near his Manhattan home. He also raised money at a read-a-thon. In all, Josh collected more than $4,100 for the project. He plans to donate 10% of his bar mitzvah gifts and hopes one day to visit the well in person.
