My name is Tyler Riewer. I'm the Brand Content Lead at charity: water, a nonprofit organization on a mission to bring clean water to every person on the planet. Which means I get to travel around the world to meet the people we serve and tell their stories.
I live in New York City. I love clubs. And community. And creative problem solving (from puzzles and caption contests to improv and every episode of MacGyver ever). And I love that we live in a world with no creative limits but a demand for brands to do it for the right reasons.
This website is half-portfolio, half-glimpse into my soul. I hope you enjoy it.
An eight-episode video series that shows charity: water donors and fundraisers who they’re helping and how their money gets put to work.
I wanted to embark on a year-long hobby adventure and thought it’d be more fun with company, so I created a club that anyone could join.
LIVE DRILL IN ETHIOPIA
10:00pm in New York City. 6:00am in Tigray, Ethiopia. A surprise live drill for gala attendees and clean water for every person in Adi Etot.
A call to arms for charity: water fundraisers willing to do anything for clean water.
MUSTACHE FOR A MONTH
I agreed to keep the worst mustache of all time for a month if my friends raised $1,000 for charity: water. They raised $2,500.
A ridiculous video that I wrote and then shot with some buddies to help inspire people
to get to know their neighbors again.
