cubbygraham Hey Northwest Folks!

I'm coming back to Seattle for 2 weeks and would love to see and meet up with as many of you as possible!

Right now, we're in the process of organizing a MASSIVE instameet in the evening of September 7th (save the date) to celebrate @charitywater 8th Birthday and would love to have you there! Our goal is to break the World Record for the Largest Instameet EVER (currently around 600 people)! We're going to need everyone's help to make it happen!

The instameet will be birthday themed and we're encouraging everyone to bring tons of bright yellow balloons, confetti, birthday hats and any other fun birthday supplies you can think of to create fun photos to raise awareness about the water crisis!

4.4 million people now have clean water because of incredible people just like y'all!

Together we can end the water crisis and it starts with ordinary people like you and me doing something about it.

I'll shoot out more info as it's available. But until then, feel free to spread the word by tagging your friends in this post or sharing about it on your own feed.

We've set up a page where you can RSVP [link in my profile] and you'll be notified with the meetup location once it's confirmed (Greater Seattle Area). So stoked to see everyone and can't wait to break the World Record with a instameet that is all about helping people in need!

cubbygraham Got to meet Little [4 day old] Baby Jackson Harrison today. So proud of his mom (@vikharrison) & dad (@scottharrison), and can't wait to see all that this little man will do to change the world.

He doesn't know yet, but for starters his parents launched a zero birthday campaign for him in support of @charitywater to help bring clean water to people in the Sahel region of Africa.

He's already raised over $170,000 that will currently help 4,800 people get access to clean water!

His campaign is still open if you'd like to donate in celebration of his birth: my.charitywater.org/babyjackson (link is in @scottharrison & @vikharrison profile). #SeptemberCampaign

cubbygraham Can't believe it's been a year ago today that one of my best friends @andyjohnjoseph took a giant leap of faith and launched @prospektsupply to the world.

So proud of him and all the incredible opportunity they've had this past year, being featured in @gq, @highsnobiety, @WSJmag, @hypebeast, among other awesome features and even exclusives garments in @openingceremony worldwide. This is UNHEARD of for a new brand that's only a year old!

Couldn't be more proud of you buddy and love seeing you chase your dreams! Keep being awesome! I'm your biggest fan (aside from your wife @janicealida)!

cubbygraham Put on my fancy feet and fancy clothes today. Had the opportunity to ring the closing bell at the #NYSE along with some of the @charitywater team in celebration of the launch of the #SeptemberCampaign.

You can check out the video and photos via my twitter account (@cubbygraham)

Huge THANK YOU to everyone's kind words about the campaign, for all of you who have shared, donated, and even started your own campaigns - we couldn't do it with out you.

Thanks for helping us bring clean water to 100,000 people in the Sahel Region of Africa.

Together we can accomplish more than on our own!

You can learn more about the campaign and how to get involved at charitywater.org/September (link is in my profile)

cubbygraham Smiles are super contagious. And every time I look at the images from the trip to Uganda with @tylerriewer and @charitywater, I can't help but smile knowing that the kids in this village have a brighter future, and a healthier today (and tomorrow) because of something as simple as clean water. #SomethingToSmileAbout

cubbygraham Really appreciate everyone's kind comments about @tylerriewer and I recent trip to Uganda with @charitywater and the beautiful story tyler wrote (link in my profile). Thought this was pretty cool to see: The community @tylerriewer and I stayed with had a runoff trough for any water overflow to feed down into a community garden. Cool to see them really stewarding the resources they have.

cubbygraham If you haven't got a chance to read the full story from @tylerriewer and I trip to Uganda with @charitywater, the link is in my profile.

In the words of @tylerriewer, "it's probably the heaviest story I've been a part of telling, but it's also the one I'm most proud of" - and I couldn't agree more.

There is 800 Million people in the world without access to clean water. Together I believe we can end the water crisis in our lifetime, and live in a world where #NobodyWasThirsty

cubbygraham Dancing in Uganda was not only something that @tylerriewer would do to encourage people to smile.

But one of the things that's so evident in the communities that our team at @charitywater visits; is that in the communities that now have access to clean and safe water - there is a unbelievable joy and life that the people have.

It becomes really clear that #WaterChangesEverything and is attributing to the development of communities like we could never imagined.

cubbygraham The weekends is normally the time I set aside to wash my clothes.

Many times in Uganda the woman often have to make decisions of how their going to use their water to drink, cook, wash, and even clean their clothes because they can only walk / carry so much water a day from the lake.

Now the community that we stayed with has a clean water project right in the village with plenty of water to accomplish everything they need. #charitywaterUganda

cubbygraham The family @tylerriewer and I stayed with in Uganda now is able to spend more time in their garden growing fresh vegetables with the extra time they used to spend walking for water.

With the extra corn their able to grow, they sell to a local market and use the extra money to help pay for their oldest a sons tuition. He's currently studying to be a doctor in Kampala! #WaterChangesEverything

cubbygraham The community @tylerriewer and I stayed with in Uganda used to walk 2 1/2 miles to collect water from Lake Victoria four to six times a day!

But now they collect water from this clean water project located within their village.

cubbygraham Something I learned while in Uganda with @tylerriewer taking photos for the most recent @charitywater story:

Goats like to ruin everything! 🐐 #charitywaterUganda

cubbygraham It's much easier waking up everyday knowing that these goofy kids can spend less time getting sick from dirty water, and more time in school and just being kids!

cubbygraham Visiting the source of water where the families that @tylerriewer and I stayed with in Uganda was unreal.
Not only is the water dangerous to drink and made people sick, but we were also told stories of numerous woman who had been killed by a crocodile or snake bite.

Life looks a lot different now for this community and they're no longer prone to these dangers because of the clean water project our local partners built right in their village.

cubbygraham The community @tylerriewer and I stayed with in Uganda used to make multiple trips, walking 2 1/2 miles to Lake Victoria (pictured) everyday to collect water.

So happy that ordinary people like you and me made a decision to be generous and do something about this crisis and now they have a clean water project right in their village and no longer have to drink this dirty lake water.

All of us have the opportunity to do something. If everyone did something, there's no telling what we could accomplish.

cubbygraham One of the mornings @tylerriewer and I woke up early to shoot photos at sunrise in Uganda and I met some kids that were listening to music from a local station on this little radio

Needless to say, we spent the next hour laughing, taking photos, and having a dance party.
