Campaign Details

Campaign Code: LifePump-43

I’ve been a long-time supporter of DO and I was recently asked to take photographs for a new home church starting in Columbus. While photography isn’t my primary profession, I realized during that experience that it was a way to connect with people and also raise awareness for Design Outreach (plus, I LOVE it). So I had the idea to start a campaign and raise funds through photography. So rather than accept payment for my services, I’m happy to have my clients donate to Design Outreach instead. I hope you’ll consider donating to my campaign and if you need photographs for any reason (family pictures, senior pictures, corporate head shots, kids pictures, baby pictures, etc), I hope you’ll consider me for that as well! Let’s work together to bring clean water to those who need it most.

About the LifePump Project

Design Outreach is collaborating with overseas partners, local governments in Africa and Haiti, and individuals like YOU to install LifePumps across the globe.

More than 663 million people around the world do not have access to clean water. Many women and children walk 3 to 5 miles a day to find water. Design Outreach seeks to make a significant impact on these statistics through the LifePump, a deep-reaching, durable hand pump designed to last years with minimal maintenance. Thousands of lives in Kenya, Ethiopia, Mali, Malawi, Zambia, and Haiti already have been directly impacted by the installation of LifePumps. ​

We are very grateful for our fundraising champions and many others for funding our future and sponsoring LifePump​s​™ ​for villages in Africa and Haiti. The​se pumps will provide long-lasting, clean water for tens of thousands of people who desperately need it.
