cubbygraham Once upon a time, I had a massive beard affixed to my face (yes, my face is hidden somewhere in there). At that time, there were also two passionate groups of people inhabiting the planet, team #ShaveCubbysBeard and team #SaveCubbysBeard.

To help raise money to bring clean water to people in need and determine the fate of my face, I launched two competing @charitywater campaigns where people could donate to either save or shave my beard. In the end, SHAVE won, my beard lost, and together we raised thousands of dollars and helped hundreds of people in Rwanda get clean water! Guys, that's crazy!

But what's even crazier is that there are still #663Million people on the planet that live every day without clean water - about twice the size of the USA population. The good news is that this number is continuing to go down because of inspiring people around the world doing crazy things to raise money for clean water. In fact, when I first learned about @charitywater, there were over a BILLION people without clean water. Guys, that number's been cut in half! CRAZY!

Yesterday, @charitywater launched the September Campaign to help bring clean water to 50,000 people.

We've seen people do some of the craziest things to raise money for clean water. Running a marathon in a speedo (@paullyoung), swimming in the freezing cold San Francisco Bay (@mikedelponte), and even whipping up some fancy custom pancakes for every $20 donation (@thepancakedad). One I just recently donated to is @mikealtman_ campaign. He's committed to dancing in public to @robynkonichiwa song "Call Your Girlfriend" EVERYDAY of September and posting the video on YouTube for everyone to enjoy. He's already raised over $3,000 for clean water!

This year I want to help raise $20,000 that'll help bring clean water to more than 600 people!

Here's where I need your help. What's the crazy thing I should do if I reach my goal of $20,000?

Together I think we can come up with some awesome ideas. Comment below what you think I should do. Remember #nothingiscrazy, because 663Million people live without clean water - The craziest thing we can do is nothing.

cubbygraham I bet octopi give the best hugs. But tickling should be done with extreme caution. # 3d

cubbygraham Fun with @finnharries.

The afternoon wasn't nearly long enough to hear all about this guys summer adventures. But we certainly got all of our steps in for the day. I just hit nearly 17,000 steps.

Glad to have you back in NYC buddy!

cubbygraham For the past 15 days, I've been eating more mindfully while trying a body reset meal plan. I gained a new appreciation for food and lost 10 lbs just by changing my eating habits.
I wasn't really looking to lose any weight, and don't think weight is a good measurement of success. But simply wanted to challenge myself to be more mindful of what I was eating.
The greatest lesson I learned is the importance of planning ahead and being prepared to make healthy choices. Most folks (including myself), let their schedule and environment determine their eating habits. But by planning ahead, it can help create positive change.

For tonight though, I'm just going to celebrate... with my old friend SPAGHETTI (and some yummy fresh bread from the bakery).

cubbygraham Took the morning Ferry to Greenpoint earlier today to meet up with my #BreakfastClubNYC friends.

So many tasty treats, including one of my favorite coffee roasters in the city, @parlorcoffee. # Great way to kick off the day!

cubbygraham Always a treat stumbling upon my friend @jr's art. Spotted one of his latest installations, #LesBosquets in TriBeCa.

Photos don't do it justice. If you get a chance, you should certainly check it out.

cubbygraham This week I started a body reset meal plan. It's been fun preparing and packing my lunch everyday. And if you're going to pack a lunch, you better have an awesome lunch box.

I do have to say, the hardest part so far has been watching my friend @songofstyle Snapchat KILLING ME AIMEE!! I'll be eating vicariously through you for the next few weeks.
