Yesterday, “Castle” star Nathan Fillion celebrated his 41st birthday and his one wish was to help the water crisis. He managed to raise over $50,000!

Fillion joined forces with charity:water, an organization that strives to find a solution to the global water crisis. His campaign goal was to reach $50,000 and surpassed that. So far, $59,432 has been donated. Way to go Nathan!

His co-star, Stana Katic, even gave a helpful shout out on Twitter. “It’s @NathanFillion’s birthday. Wish him a happy one. he ‘needs a dollah’ http://t.co/6nuISZYE.”

Earlier in the week Fillion made sure his Twitter followers and fans knew about his efforts by tweeting, “Name the luxuries in your life. Did water make the list? Give the gift of water. It’s my birthday! http://t.co/lowRXUdI.”

By donating only $1 you can help Fillion and those who don’t have access to clean, safe water, with 100 percent of the proceeds going directly to developing nations.

As Fillion says on his charity page, “There’s nothing in life that doesn’t start with water.”

There are 86 days left to donate, so help Fillion out!
