At charity: water we have a very unique business model. 100% of donations from the public go straight to the field. That's possible because of The Well. For those of you who have never heard of The Well, here's a quick lil definition for ya: it's a membership program that supports all of the overhead, the credit card fees, events, and all of the behind-the-scenes finances. To put it simply, without The Well there would be no charity: water, or at least it would be a very different looking version of charity: water. These generous people make the transparency of c:w possible, and that was one of the biggest factors that brought me into working here. Their idea of reinventing the way charity is done is addicting. I wanted to be a part of that.
