Podcast title card with Scott Harrison on the left and Tom Foster on the right

Scott Harrison is the founder of charity: water, a non-profit organization with a mission to bring clean, drinkable water to everyone around the world. Scott started the charity in 2006 after volunteering as a photographer on a hospital ship off the coast of Liberia for two years. He decided he wanted to make clean water his mission since 1 out of 10 people in the world are still drinking unclean water. Scott was recognized in Fortune’s “40 Under 40,” Forbes’ “Impact 30,” and was ranked 10th in Fast Company’s “100 Most Creative People in Business.” He is also the author of The New York Times bestseller, Thirst: A Story of Redemption, Compassion, and a Mission to Bring Clean Water to the World.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • How having it all doesn’t equal a fulfilled feeling: Scott was living the “good” life as a club promoter, making tons of money, and hanging out with celebrities. He tells the story of how he woke up one morning with health issues and was faced with his mortality.

  • About a life-changing experience that led to a new mission: Scott spent two years working on a hospital ship in Liberia and saw first-hand how dirty water caused a variety of health problems for the people there. He returned to New York City in 2006 with a mission to bring clean water around the world.

  • How 100% of donations go to the cause: Scott knew many people were skeptical of charities and where their money was actually going. He explains how charity: water is funded by businesses and entrepreneurs, so all donations go to providing clean water.

  • What you can do to get involved in the mission: Scott says charity: water has helped 12 million people get clean water, but there is more work to do. Find out how you can get involved and help people around the world.
