Hi, I am Jewel, and together we can make an impact for clean water, I was homeless for a year when I was 18 years old, and I had bad kidneys1 and I had to drink a gallon of clean water a day and I couldn't afford it. And I thought if we’re in America, and we can't really drink our tap water or drink bottled water, what is it like in another country where you can't even get bottled water? And I thought if my life have a turnaround and look into it.

Amazingly my life turned around. The first thing I did before I’ve ever made a penny was found Project Clean Water. I founded the Project Clean Water in 1997 since then we've put about 35 wells in 15 different countries and five continents. We're trying to solve local water problems, so basically we go to a village and we figure out why they can't get clean water and we’re trying to partner with local groups for technology, and figure out how to get them clean water.

If I could tell the world just one thing, it would be we're all okay.

I am here in Nashville at the blueberry cafe and I am doing some solo2, acoustic3 shows and all the proceeds go to Project Clean Water. One of the best things for me about this charity is how cost-effective it is to help. We can put a well in for a little of 5,000 dollars, sometimes a thousand dollars.
