The Life Campaign is a movement of young people who believe in creating social change. It began with a gathering of Canadian youth leaders who knew they could do more together than they could apart. And from there, it started to grow. It was all about connection, and it reached out to people of all ages. What mattered most was being able to join together to work towards a just world and a hopeful future. Today, in the simplest terms, The Life Campaign is a network of people who know that how we live at home can make a difference on the other side of the world. We’re currently focusing on clean water and education projects in countries where we have people on the ground, so that we can be the hands of Christ in places that need our help. The world is a village, after all, and we believe that we can give love. That we can give life. That we can give hope. Whether we’re working to drill a well or build a school, we know that we can make a change. We can make a difference. We can make decisions that matter. Those leaders were right, after all: we’re greater together than we are apart.
There’s nothing more fundamental than water. And there’s nothing more important. It’s 70% of the planet, after all. Simply put, water is life. Without it, we can’t survive. But even as you read this, there’s a serious water crisis around the world. The United Nations has recognized access to clean water as a human right, but more than 1 billion people can’t get the water they need. That’s one in six of us. The facts tell the story: more than 5000 children die from contaminated water every day. But that’s where The Life Campaign comes in: we’re making it our mission to raise 3 quarters of a million dollars by the end of 2012 to add to our total of $620,325.47 that we've raised to date so that we can construct at least 35 more wells on top of the 77 that has already been built. We can’t do it alone, though, and we’re going to need your help. If we join together, we can solve one of the most serious problems facing our world today. It doesn’t take much to save a life. It doesn’t take much to save a family. It doesn’t take much to make a change. We all have a part to play, and we’d love to have you with us.
The Life Campaign is based in Canada, but our current mission is to make clean drinking water available to communities in the developing world. This past year alone we've installed wells in Senegal, Burkina Faso, Kabakuli, Kalindi, Champeta, and Bangladesh and we're on building more in Guatemala, Bangladesh, and India.

With your help, we've finished 77 wells and many more to come. As the work progresses, we’ll be posting information about the projects so you can stay connected to the people and the places that your donation will be helping. The world is a small place, after all, and we’re all in this thing together. If you join us, we can give the greatest gift of all. The gift of health. The gift of hope. The gift of life.
The funds we’re raising through The Life Campaign are going directly to Emergency Relief and Development Overseas, the Canadian humanitarian organization that will be installing the wells we’re funding. If you’d like to join us, it’s simple. It doesn’t take much to save a life, and even the smallest gestures can make a significant difference.

Last year at History Maker 2011, BC and the Yukon raised $18,000 to build wells that provide clean water for many communities around the world. Because of the tremendous success, we decided to do it again. This year, History Maker 2012 will be held in Abbotsford, BC on May 18-20. The weekend is filled with some amazing sessions, speakers and a whole lot of fun. If you’ve never been, why not come this year and bring some friends along. There is still time to register.

We want to get you involved with helping change the lives of many. Come prepared to give to an incredible cause. No amount is too small. Dig deep and give until it hurts. One small gift from your own pocket can make a difference in someone’s life. We can do more together then we can do alone. Together we can make a difference. Together we can give Life.
