In honor of her 9th birthday, Rachel asked friends and family to donate money to bring clean water to an African village and was close to meeting her goal of $300 when she died over the weekend after a car accident July 20, 2011, in Bellevue, Wash. In her memory, strangers have now made her dream come true many times over and by Wednesday afternoon, some 10,000 people had donated more than $400,000 to "charity: water."
