A 9 year old girl donated her birthday present money. A month later, she died, causing people to donate $ 1.2 million in her name!

Rachel Beckwith was a girl who dreamed about saving the world. When she discovered, one day, that in some parts of the world, water was considered a luxury by children of her age, she decided to create a fundraising page on the mycharitywater.org charity website asking her friends and family to donate 9 Dollars instead of buying her birthday gifts.

She wanted to collect 300 Dollars to quench the thirst of 15 people, but unfortunately, she had not reached her goal, as a month later, she was killed in a car accident.

The tragedy led more than 35,000 people to donate money through Rachel’s fundraising page, and the sum of the donations has risen to more than 1.2 million dollars that have been given to the State of Ethiopia in contribution to water purification projects that would lead to quenching the thirst of thousands of people.
