Clean water for Flint from Texas

$1,600 of $2,000 goal

Hey guys, 

I'm playing a show in Flint, MI on May 6th and I'm trying to raise money to pay to drive  a uhaul full of clean bottled water to my gig at the Hispanic Technology and Community Center.  They have a food pantry there where they distribute stuff every wednesday. A basic Uhaul is $1,229.00 and I figured that including water would probably run about $3,000. I was also planning on buying clean water in michigan when I got there if I didn't fill the truck here. Seriously, anything helps.  I didn't want to go play a show there and just do nothing to help about their situation. Thanks for taking the time to read this.

I changed my overall goal from 3,000 to 2,000. It'll be a little easier to do with the time we have now and I think if we make it to our UHAUL Goal that what's leftover should be enough to cover gas too on the way to Flint, MI. I plan on having a water drive/show here in SA to help fill it up with water.

Hey guys. So I think we really might be able to pull this off. We're really close to the UHAUL price goal of $1,229. I just need some help pushing through to April so we can make this happen. Please share and donate. Thank you for helping me get this far. <3

Okay so, as you guys know I currently have this gofundme set up for a show in Flint, MI to raise money to take a uhaul full of water up there when I go play my show. WELL my deadline got changed from MAY to APRIL to raise the money for the uhaul so I might not be able to actually afford the UHAUL. Despite this, We've done REALLYREALLYREALLY well so far though you guys. I'm so proud of everyone who has been eager to share and donate and help out. We HAVE raised $915 out of $3,000 by 41 people in 16 days and I KNOW that can be used to help in some way. If we don't raise enough for the uhaul my backup plan is to order the water it and find a way to ship it to the community center where I'm playing so they can have it there for distribution. Does anyone else have any ideas as to a better way to get some clean water over there if I can't raise enough money for a uhaul?

"Does anyone else have any ideas as to a better way to get some clean water over there if I can't raise enough money for a uhaul?" Yes, what if you called and asked the community center for some cost effective options? See if they have any contacts which will discount the cost of water and offer free shipping to them so that the money you raised will provide as much water as possible. If you need help with doing the research, please let me know, I would love to help you.
