Dear Donors and Loyal Followers,
At long last, 6 months after the smashing success that was OktoberfeAst, where hundreds of memories were made and thousands of dollars were raised to build a fresh-water well at a village in Sudan, we are proud to say that the “Who Will We Well” has been COMPLETED!
Amazingly, our well ended up being built not in a village center, but even better at the local orphanage, St. Bartholomew’s, home to over 100 Sudanese orphans.
Better still, a private donor– inspired by the nearly 200 individual donations we received– chipped in extra funds to add a submersible pump to our well! What that means is that the orphanage will now have plumbing; water pumped directly into the children’s dorms and into the facility’s medical clinic (which, like this well, also serves the surrounding community).
The completion of this project brings finality to an absolutely stunning collaborative effort by hundreds of people across multiple continents, and it all started here, with YOU, the donors.
The submersible pump is currently awaiting installation (making its way to Sudan from Italy), but once that water starts flowing, you better believe you’ll be able to see the photos in all their glossy glory right here (or rather on our brand new website coming soon). In the mean time, you can check out a few more pics below. You can read more about St. Bartholomew’s and the Who Will We Well and check out 60 additional photos by clicking here.
I’ve said it before, and one of the perks of working in Who Will We Will is getting to say this time and time again…
…just look at those smiling faces!
On behalf of all of us at Who Will We Will and the children & staff of St. Bartholomew’s…thank you, thank you, 1000 times thank you!

Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls,
It is with much excitement and anticipation that we are proud to announce Who Will We Will’s next great event: Cinema Charité!
Staying true to our ambition of throwing fun, innovative (yet simple) events for a cool cause, Cinema Charité is an idea as simple as they come: We pick a sweet cult film, screen it at a hip venue, throw in some drinks (naturally) and give a few bucks to a worthy cause.
For our inaugural event, we’re harping back to our youth and screening the 1986 Disney classic “Flight of the Navigator“.
Our cause this month is American Forest’s ‘Global Releaf’ campaign. Every dollar you donate plants a tree. It’s that simple. We’re asking for a $10 donation per person, so just think, for $10…you’ll plant 10 trees, have access to a full bar, a fantastic film, and one hell of a good time.
Oh and as an added bonus, the first 50 people in attendance get a FREE bag of popcorn! Could it get any better? Tell a friend.
You can pre-purchase tickets for $10 a piece now, right here.
Hope to see ya there!
