FINAL UPDATE: Thank you, thank you, thank you! Together we raised $5000 — enough to build a fresh water well that will serve 250 families forever–and we did it in under 18 hours. Who makes this possible? YOU and http://www.charitywater.org. Please check them out and continue to give. Consider asking your friends and family to re-direct what they’d normally spend on your birthday this year and send it to charity: water. 100% (yes you read correctly) of your money goes directly to water projects…0% to administration and other peripheries. Again, many thanks! If you want to continue giving on this campaign, please do–I’ll leave the account open for donations until the end of the year – click here to see our donation page. My most humble gratitude to you and our community here.
NEWEST UPDATE 5:30am Seattle time: We’re at 90% of our goal!! Just $450 short of building a well in Africa in one day with just a few hours left in this challenge. Please help – and please ask your network to help…we can’t do it without your support. Join the photo industry and donate here now. Thank you!
UPDATE: We’ve upped our game and decided to raise enough to build a new fresh water well TODAY TODAY TODAY that will provide water for 250 families. We’re giving ourselves 24 hours to raise $5000.

TODAY’S Monday December 6th episode of chasejarvisLIVE is not to be missed. I’m not doing a live photo shoot and I’m not interviewing a photographer or a filmmaker. It’s bigger than that. In fact it’s bigger than photography and bigger than creativity. It transcends whatever it is that most of do on a day to day basis.
My guest is Scott Harrison and his story is about bringing clean water to 100 million people worldwide. His plan to do so is via one of the most dynamic and fast-growing non-profits in the world called charity: water.
My pal Michael Hebb (also my partner in Songs For Eating and Drinking) and I met Scott in Washington DC last spring. This man and his message rocked us, and we’re lucky enough to host him on our show just before his story airs on ABC’s 20/20 in ten days…seriously. Scott is an amazing creative mind and a dynamic and engaging speaker. He’s changing the world and his story will light a fire underneath you – whatever your passion might be. You’ll get to meet him on Monday if you tune in – even ask some questions live on the air via my twitter handle @chasejarvis or using #cjLIVE.
WHAT: You, Me, Hebb, Scott Harrison (and his 1.3 million twitter followers)
WHEN: Monday, December 6th at 6:30pm Pacific/9:30 Eastern USA

From Fast Company magazine: “Scott Harrison hopes to turn charity: water into an epic brand that brings fresh water to 100 million people in need of something most of us take for granted. His journey is both inspiring and instructional for any entrepreneur.”
We’re trying to build a fresh water well in Africa with this one event in Seattle and online show. A well costs $5000. Please donate here – it’s tax deductible – anything is hugely appreciated.
See you Monday evening online.
