Football and Water Wells
Ray Lewis, former Ravens line backer, will climb Mt. Kilimanjaro in June in  an effort to raise money for clean water projects in East Africa.  The NFL legend is teaming up with WorldServe International to raise 500,000 dollars to build wells in East Africa. East Africa has experienced serious drought that has killed thousands of people. The water that people currently have access to is unsafe since it contains pathogens such as Cholera and Typhoid
WorldServe  International is a non profit organization  that provides water and  sanitation to developing countries. Water wells would give the people of East Africa long term access to clean water. The wells typically range from 15,000- 25,000 dollars in cost and serve approximately 3000-5000 people! More information on these wells is available here.
