Hey friends!

I'm heading to Tanzania in October to build a clean water well!

I am so excited and I need your support! Give clean water by clicking Donate Now.

Why I'm involved:


A few weeks ago I traveled to Tijuana, Mexico on a Sunday to help paint a home for a deserving family, and the impact blew me away.

This family told me in tears about how their dream was to have a home for their five kids, but they would have never been able to earn enough money to afford it - even though they work hard.

Yet, here they were, with a new home for their family, thanks to the support of a foundation and a few strangers who cared.

The truth is, I'm privileged that this was just a Sunday I took off work to make a difference for someone else. But to them, this was their life dream realized.

Their kids no longer had to sleep in the cold, on dirt floods with the wind keeping them up all night. They finally had a home, with a kitchen table and bunk beds. The joy I saw as tears flowing down their face is something I will never forget.

Now we have a chance to do something special, in Tanzania, Africa!

I'm partnering with E.P.I.C. (Everyday People Initiating Change) to build a clean water well in Tanzania. E.P.I.C. is an organization cofounded by Alexi Panos and Tennille Amor over ten years ago.




What's the impact?

Imagine waking up this morning to brush your teeth, but instead of turning on a faucet with safe and clean water to use, you dump your toothbrush in a bucket full of bacteria, mosquitoes and dirt.

That's the reality of 1.1 billion people in the world who do not have access to safe and clean water. Contaminated water isn't just gross, it also leads to diarrhea, the leading cause of child death in the world. More people die each year from unsafe water than from all forms of violence, including war.

We have the power to change this!

Each well provides water for about 500 people for 20 years, and we'll also provide hygiene and sanitation education to the youth and women of the village in order to help ensure the projects sustainability.




This will make a real and lasting difference for people who deserve our support.

My goal is to raise $5,000 total.

The first $3,000 will go directly to E.P.I.C. (Everyday People Initiating Change) for my share of the water well, including materials, testing, labor, implementation, training and maintenance.

A tax deductible receipt is available for the first $3,000 pledged.

The additional $2,000 will go towards helping to cover my flights there and back, and to purchase a new camera to document the trip for my YouTube channel - to further spread awareness and inspire other leaders to take action themselves. 

On a personal level, this trip will help me become a better leader, to further my mission of positively impacting 10 million people in the next three years.

I can't do it alone and I need your support! Together we can make a difference.

Hi all! One last update from me. Today is the LAST DAY to fundraise for our second clean water well and we are about $800 away from our goal. Can I count on you?

All the details are here: http://gamequitters.com/tanzania

I've received a few questions about this second trip:

1. What is your goal?

Our goal is to raise an additional $3K to build a second clean water well.

2. Where does the $3K go?

ALL (100%) of the proceeds go directly to E.P.I.C. ( http://epicthemovement.org) for our portion of the well. This year, I will be personally covering all of my own travel expenses.

3. Why do you go to Tanzania, and not just fundraise at home?

For sustainability, it's important to not only bring resources (finances), but to also build relationships with the locals and provide proper training. Sending money alone doesn't solve the problem. So when we are on the ground, we do a number of things including vetting villages, building relationships, training, and having open dialogue about culture, human rights, and other issues important for our world.

The other reason it's important to actually go on a trip like this is because it acts as an example of what's possible when you take a stand for what you believe in. Over the past year, I've had over 15+ friends apply to do a similar trip, and the ripple effect of that is substantial. I believe the more people get involved in contributing back to the world, whether through donating to a campaign like this or doing their own fundraiser, the more we can make this world the beautiful world we all know it can be.

4. Do you have any bonuses this year?

Yes! I have a number of bonuses this year for those who donate, including discounted coaching calls, access to our Respawn package (to help people with gaming addiction issues), handwritten letters from me, stickers, and others. Find all bonuses here: gamequitters.com/tanzania

5. I can't donate, but how can I help?

You can share our campaign on social media - that helps a lot! Share this link: gamequitters.com/tanzania - THANK YOU for all of your support.

Final thoughts:

In just under a few weeks I'll be on the ground in Tanzania once again, and I can't wait to share with you not only the update from the well we built last year, but show you the kids we will be helping this year. Follow me on Instagram ( http://instagram.com/camerondare) or Facebook ( http://facebook.com/elekt) for all the latest updates on our project.

Together we are making the world a better place, and I can't thank you enough for your support.

Please help us cross the finish line today and bring a second clean water well to a village in Tanzania: gamequitters.com/tanzania

If I can support YOU at all, please reach out anytime: cam@gamequitters.com - I'd love to help.

UPDATE: We're going BACK TO TANZANIA to build another water well!!!

And I need your support once again. Watch the video (contains unreleased footage from the last trip): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W3lG9_3nvw8

To donate again, please go here: http://gamequitters.com/tanzania

Last year we did something special together when we raised $6,000 to build a clean water well for the village of Lupalama in Iringa, Tanzania.

During the trip, I was able to see with my very own eyes the reality of their situation.


I'll never forget walking through the courtyard and witnessing a mother feeding her newborn baby water from a bucket... a bucket that I saw her fill up in a dirty creek filled with cow shit.

As difficult as it was to witness this, it only reinforced why I was there and why this project was so important. Charity Water reports 4,500 children die every day from water-related illnesses.

Seeing the difference a clean water well makes for the future of a village, I knew we had to do it again this year. Who's with me!?

This year my goal is to raise $3,000 total, my portion of the well that goes directly to E.P.I.C. the Movement (Everyday People Initiating Change), a non-profit founded by my friends Alexi Panos and Tennille Amor who have been operating in Tanzania for over a decade.

Pledge your support here: gamequitters.com/tanzania

A tax deductible receipt is available for the first $3,000.

On a personal level, this trip will continue to help me become a better leader, and further my mission of positively impacting 10 million people in the next three years through the work of Game Quitters.

I will be documenting the journey once again to inspire others to take a stand for what they believe in. This fundraiser will act as an example of what's possible when you commit to a vision and TAKE MASSIVE ACTION.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!

WE DID IT! We successfully funded our campaign!

I do not know how to express my gratitude other than to say thank you. Truly. Thank you. I know that your support speaks to more than your desire to help me build a clean water well in Tanzania. It speaks to your belief in me, and the vision I have for the world. There were over 100 of you who took this stand and it has touched me to the depths of my heart.

This campaign has opened me up and helped me transcend into a better version of myself. A kinder, more compassionate version of myself. Receiving so much support (from YOU!) has left me with a feeling of peace that is new to me, but feels really, really good.

I leave for Tanzania in less than a month, and I can't wait to share pictures and videos with you of the impact this campaign has. Together we are going to make a difference in this world.
