THE STORY OF THE FIRST CHARITY CHALLENGE

It all started as many things at Simple Charity do...

...that is, with a crazy idea! During Simple Charity’s 2021 summer internship, our college interns set out to raise $10,000 for Neverthirst, an outstanding charity that seeks to provide clean and living water for the unreached. Two of our interns, Jesse Kinya and Kathia Smith, challenged Brian Grasso (our founder and CEO, and their boss) to face one of his greatest fears—heights. Brian agreed to a deal: if we were to hit our goal, he would jump out of an airplane.

Donations poured in, and by God’s grace, we raised $10,508! So, on July 31, Jesse and Kathia happily took Brian to thrust aside his fears and go skydiving. And...(drumroll)...they survived.

According to Neverthirst, every $25 serves one person with clean water. By that calculation, we were able to serve around 417 people—the size of an entire village! Would we have hit our goal without Brian’s vow? God only knows. But today, the entire Simple Charity team wants to encourage you to take a Charity Challenge.

It could just mean the difference between dirty or clean water for a neighbor in need.
