David has been a Global Messenger for Water with Blue Planet Network since 2007. Over the years, he has brought water educations to thousands of students and raised over $38,000 for the safe drinking water projects of Blue Planet Network members, who work tirelessly building in the field and continually monitoring and sharing their water systems on Blue Planet Network for lasting impact.
"I love endurance-adventure, helping others, and the cause of safe drinking water is very dear to me. The fact that about 6,000 people die every single day because of lack of access to safe drinking water is very alarming. We need to realize how fortunate we all are by not having to think about such a basic need as safe drinking water. One fifth of the world does not have this luxury, and it is our duty to help."
