After distributing water with my best friend, LeKia Nolan, and her family, I set up the Water for Flint campaign to raise money for the purchase of water for the citizens of Flint. 

So far, we have delivered more than 2,000 cases  of water and 1,000 packs of baby wipes.

Every penny donated will be used for the purchase of water for Flint residents, particularly for families with children. Photos of our efforts will be posted on my Facebook and Twitter accounts - Marseille Allen.

Our efforts are ongoing. Every dollar helps. We are in it for the long haul....

Team:
Join us this morning on Periscope and Twitter (@MarseilleAllen) for our fifth door-to-door water distribution.

Today, we will deliver water, baby wipes and oranges. Studies have proven that Vitamin C, iron and calcium help reduce the impact of lead poisoning. We will continue to deliver oranges to, and purchase lead fighting foods for, low-income families in Flint.

I hope to see you online.

Yours,

Mars

Hope to see you all on

Team:

We have completed our third distribution. Thank you again to the UAW Local 6000 and Rightaway Delivery, for all of your support.

So far, we have given to the residents of Flint more than 100,000 bottles of water and 1500 packs of baby wipes.

We will continue to distribute water and wipes, but will also work with other organizations to distribute foods high in Calcium, Iron and Vitamin C, all which help limit the effects of lead.

Feel free to watch the attached video produced by the staff of GoFundMe. If you have never been able to join us on Periscope, the video will give you an opportunity to see the work we do in the community.

Ideas will get this fixed...can you drill for water 15-20 miles away to obtain a new supply of water...then lay down 15-20 miles of new pipe to the city so that homes can have new water. Raise money for drilling and new pipes....have university students draw up the plans...
