DAYS Star's Charity Birthday Bash

Kate Mansi (Abigail, DAYS) is hosting a charity benefit in Los Angeles in conjunction with her birthday. "Recently I learned that 800 million people in the world are living without water," she says. "That is far too many people to live without our most essential, most basic resource. I couldn't shake the awareness I had of this crisis and felt called to do something to help. That is why this year I am using my birthday to join the Charity: Water Birthday Campaign. On September 21, I will be hosting 'k20 Birthday Benefit' — a ticketed event to earn money for Charity: Water in which 100 percent of ticket sales goes towards clean water for Orissa India. Because of venue restrictions in capacity, I couldn't have all the great supporters attend this, so I created a raffle with three unique prizes to reward and engage the donors in my campaign." There are various levels of donations, from $45 up. A $450 donation gives water to an entire family for a year and gives donors a chance to win a lunch with Mansi and a special DAYS cast member. "I will be announcing the winners on my actual birthday, Sunday, September 15 via my whosay and social media pages," enthuses Mansi. "I cannot wait to reach our goal of $20,000 and am already feeling so much appreciation for the support we have received in just launching a few days ago!" Go to for more information.
