“Castle” star Nathan Fillion is once again using his birthday to raise funds for an important cause. Clean safe drinking water. The browncoat has already enlisted the help of 477 fans who have donated just under ten thousand dollars. His goal? One hundred grand.

Fillion wrote on his donation page, “Obligatory guilt inducing statement: Millions of kids around the world don’t see their 5th birthday because they don’t have clean water. Let it sit. Think about it. Good.” He continues, “Last year, you helped celebrate my birthday by building several wells for over 3000 people. That’s something none of us can do on our own, but together with My Charity Water it’s a piece of cake. But, don’t send cake. We want water. Let’s build even more wells this year.”

Fillion will turn 42 on March 27th. His birthday is well timed to raise funds for an organization like Charity Water. World Water Day is actually tomorrow, Friday March 22nd.
