Scott Harrison does not have any upcoming events.
Scott Harrison left his job in New York City just over 12 years ago to volunteer on a hospital ship off the coast of Liberia, West Africa as a volunteer photojournalist. There, he discovered a passion that brought him home to New York to found the non-profit organization charity: water in 2006. Turning his full attention to the global water crisis and the world’s 663 million people without clean water to drink, he created public installations and innovative online fundraising platforms to spread international awareness of the issue.
In ten years, with the help of more than one million donors worldwide, charity: water has raised over $225 million and funded over 21,000 water projects in 24 countries. These projects have provided clean, safe drinking water to over 6.4 million people.
Scott was recently recognized in Fortune Magazine’s 40 under 40 list, the Forbes Magazine Impact 30 list and was recently #10 in Fast Company’s 100 Most Creative People in Business issue. He is currently a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader. Scott lives in New York City with his wife Viktoria, son Jackson and daughter Emma.
