Truly one of my favorite organizations!!! Its mission is simple but its goal is life sustaining - everyone deserves clean water. These volunteers are amazing and generous people with their time and skills. They started with the goal of building one well, but they have built many wells over a ten-year period. Many of us learned about the African Well Fund becasue we are U2 fans, and the first well was built as a gift for Bono's birthday. This is part of what makes it so special for me - every well is a tribute to the man who gave us so much and taught us so much about poverty and about how "we get to carry each other." And now we get to do it.......

The Crossley's have always been a huge supporter of the African Well Fund. What started out as a group of U2 fans helping the those in need has branched into an amazing organization that continues to grow and evolve. They continue to inspire people of all ages to help one eachother and as the infamous lyric goes "Carry eachother". Case in point is that one year ago, my oldest Nathaniel Crossley decided to help the African Well Fund's WASH Project in Tanzania and Malawi and managed to fundraise over 9000 dollars which contributed to the building of 4 Water Wells. So when you speak of "The African Well Fund" you aren't just talking about a U.S organization, you are talking about a global group that is making a difference. Dream out loud!
