Greater Good: Ben Gibbard and Nathan Willett run for “Water Wells for Africa”

Between April 1st and April 30th, Nathan Willett from Cold War Kids and Ben Gibbard from Death Cab for Cutie ran a combined 148 miles and raised over $2,000 for a new water well in Malawi, Southern Africa. Water Wells For Africa is a grassroots non-profit that was founded and run by Nathan Willett’s family twelve years ago. Through donations, WWFA has put in over 100 water wells in drought regions in Malawi, Southern Africa.
