Couple Brad and Kimberly Williams-Paisley have partnered with the non-profit Live Beyond...Thirst to help install water purification systems in impoverished neighborhoods in Haiti. The Paisleys have launched the Paisley Challenge, which offers fans a chance to make monthly and one-time donations to the charity. The money will fund the installation of 100 wells to provide the neighborhood of Thomazeau with clean water.
Brad and Kimberly shed light on the daily challenges the 200,000 Thomazeau residents face daily in in interview in the Tennessean. Brad explains, "When they're not worried about dysentery and they're not worried about malnutrition, they can start figuring out what they're dreams are. Imagine, there are people that don't have dreams as far as what they want to do with their lives. Their dream is to survive."
The cost to install a water purification system is $5,000-$6,000. Donate directly at mmdr.org.
