Clean Water IndiaA former intern of MOTHER EARTH NEWS magazine, Michelle Martin, is doing something really cool to celebrate her 25th birthday. She’s raising money to bring clean water to those who need it. 

Michelle started her birthday fundraiser through an organization called Charity: Water, and if she reaches her goal, she’ll bring clean water to 15 people. If she surpasses her goal, it will be even more!

If you’re interested in learning more about Michelle’s inspiring project — or pitching in even a small amount to help — check out her Birthday Mission fundraising page. Even a few dollars helps.
