For this Christmas season, Carlos Salazar of Before There Was Rosalyn has teamed up with Mycharity: Water (  & started a campaign to raise $2000 to fund clean drinking water wells in developing countries. The end date is December 31st, 2010 and if the goal is met, Carlos has offered to shave his dreadlocks off.

In his own words, he explains “I am part of a generation that writes, blogs, tweets, sings, screams and shouts about real tangible change on a daily basis and I have felt it hard pressed in my heart for some time that the time is now to really live up to the values and beliefs we so boldly claim. One billion people worldwide live without access to clean drinking water. That’s one in eight people around the world. %90 of the 42,000 deaths caused by unsanitary water conditions every week are children under five years old. We can save them. And we can start by saving one. Just one.” Carlos explains further the reasons and inspirations behind his campaign in his personal blog which can be found here
