This philanthroparty combined our our love of music with my passion to raise awareness for those without access to clean water. To celebrate my bandmate's birthdays, we planned a Back Yard Concert complete with a signature Pucker Face Contest and a Dirty Water Dare. I collected water from our local water source, like the girls in Africa do. It was disgusting and smelly even after it was purified and tested safe (which is not an option in Africa). We dared each other to drink these nasty "Swamp-tinis" and gained appreciation for the privilege of clean water. Our band performed for the party guests, but the highlight was an appearance by The Good Mad, who donated their time to perform for our cause and helped us raise $1300.00.
I even got to play drums with The Good Mad!

And would you drink this Swamp-tini?
