We're all about celebs who use their birthday wish to give back to others, and that's exactly what Connor Franta is doing! Today, the web star is celebrating his 23rd birthday, and he launched a brand new project with an organization close to his heart, The Thirst Project, in honor of the occasion.
Connor started a Prizeo campaign to collect donations to fulfill his dream: building wells worldwide so that one day, every community can have clean and safe drinking water. He's also calling on his fans to retweet and spread the word about this important issue in any way they can!
"I can't think of a better way to celebrate my birthday with you guys," Connor shared on his page. "I want to help The Thirst Project build 15 wells in Swaziland. Each well costs $12,000 and can provide water for up to 500 people. $25 can give 1 person water for LIFE. If we can raise $180,000 together to build 15 wells, we can help provide 7,500 people with safe, clean water for the rest of their lives."
Even though it feels great to give back and make change, there's also a chance to meet Connor in his whole project. "If you donate, you will also have a chance to win a trip for 2 to LA to hang with me!" he shared. "I'll take you to my favorite coffee shop. You'll be flown from anywhere in the world, and your hotel accommodations will be taken care of, too. Last year, we built 19 wells and helped 9,500 people. You blew me away. I would love to help save lives with you again. So let's do this! I can't wait to see what we can do together!"
How cool is that?!
