Thirst, by Scott Harrison, Hardcover
When Scott Harrison was 28 years-old he had it all. He was a top nightclub promoter in New York City living out an endless cycle of drugs, booze, models, and repeat. Ten years into this routine he was desperately unhappy and morally bankrupt. He asked himself, "What would the exact opposite of my life look like?" He walked away from everything and spent the next 16 months on a hospital ship in West Africa where he found his true calling. In 2006, with no money and less than no experience, Harrison founded charity: water. Today, his organization has raised over $300 million to bring clean drinking water to more than 8.2 million people globally.
In Thirst, Harrison takes readers through the twists and turns that build charity: water into one of the most trusted and admired nonprofits in the world. Renowned for hits 100% donation model, bold storytelling, imaginative branding, and radical commitment to transparency, charity: water has changed how social entrepreneurs work while inspiring millions of people to join its mission of bringing clean water to everyone on the planet within our lifetime.
n the tradition of such bestselling books as Shoe Dog and Mountains Beyond Mountains, Thirst is a compelling account of how to build a better charity, a better business, a better life, and a gritty tale that proves it’s never too late to make a change.
100% of the author’s net proceeds from Thirst will go to fund charity: water projects around the world.
