In order for the official /sig/ server to celebrate 500 members we have decided to fundraise for a cause that will allow for others to share in our goal of self improvement. That cause is clean drinking water. 780 million people in the world have to worry about impovershed drinking water. This can lead to early mortality and hours a day that could be spent learning or reading are delegated to children retrieving water from nearbye villages.
For 500 members the server has decided to donate 500 dollars, one for each member in order to do something good with our community, no matter how small it makes a difference. Every four dollars donated is access to clean well water for a person for 20 years. For 500 dollars that's 125 people that get clean drinking water if we achieve our goal.
