Water for Flint, MI
February 29, 2016

Auzaye has been a leader in the music industry, now we want to lead in our community  to  make an impact, and make it matter.

Our goal is to provide an opportunity to contribute directly to residents of Flint, Michigan who are in need of clean drinking water.  We have teamed up with Pastor David Bullock of Detroit, MI to deliver water on Feb. 29, 2016 the last day of Black History Month directly to the people who need it the most in Flint, MI. 

Delivery Time & Location: 
Monday Feb. 29, 2016 @ 4PM
House of Prayer Missionary Baptist Church
1851 W Carpenter 
Flint, MI

Background:

The water crisis in Flint, MI has affected the lives of over 102,000 people including 10,000 children. High levels of lead have plagued Flint’s municipal water supply for at least a year, prompting extensive emergency measures to keep residents safe. Approximately 6,000-12,000 children in Flint have been exposed to drinking water with high levels of lead which may cause a range of serious long term health problems. The polluted water is also a possible cause for an outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease that has claimed the lives of 10 people and 87 others affected.

The Auzaye seeks to assist the people of Flint, Michigan, by leading a campaign entitled “Making an Impact, Making It Matter”; during this effort Auzaye will raise at least $3,667 to purchase 50,000 water bottles to provide clean water for the residents of Flint, Michigan.

Water & Shipping Cost

We have negotiated our prices with Value Wholesale Distributors located in Detroit, MI which is approximately one hour’s driving distance from Flint, MI. One Mac-Truck load of water is equivalent to 19 pallets at $3,667. The have agreed to a delivery date and time of Monday Feb. 29, 2016 @ 4PM.  

19 Pallets = 1,596 Cases of Water = 38,304 Bottles

It only  cost $3,667 to ship 38k+ bottles to Flint, MI

25 Pallets = 2,100 Cases = 50,400 Bottles = $4,825



Think of the impact you can make in the lives of the famlies and childeren in Flint, MI. 

PLEASE DONATE

Auzaye will send representatives to deliver the water to the individuals who need it the most. We have relationships with community leaders including Pastor David Bullock who has already worked with celebrity donors to deliver water into the community of Flint, MI.

We have communicated with community leaders in Detroit and Flint, MI to organize the delivery of water to House of Prayer Missionary Baptist Church. We have confirmation from Value Wholesale Distributors located in Detroit, MI they will deliver the water on February 29, 2016.

Community leaders in Flint, MI will organize an effort to people in need to come to the church and pick up as much water as they need. We will also have water delivered to underprivileged families who may not have appropriate transportation to come pick up the water.

The entire delivery of the water to Flint, MI will be video documented to show all who contributed funds exactly where their donations went.

Thank You,

We landed in Detroit Monday morning and drove to meet Matthew, the VP of Value Wholesale Distributors. He personally helped up load 50,000 bottles of water into a tractor trailer. We convoyed with the truck for and hour and a half to Flint, MI.

As soon as we entered the city limits of Flint you could feel the weight of the crisis. The community was gathered for a rally to recall Gov. Rick Snyder, held by Pastor David Bullock of Oxygen Network's show, Preachers Of Detroit. Pastor Bullock just had a right to petition approved by the state of Michigan. But they have to collect 789,133 signatures in a 60-day period. Just as he called the community of Flint, MI to action the tractor trailer pulled up to the church.

We were able to distribute the water you helped purchase directly to the people who needed it the most. Because of the large quantity of water, families were able to take 3-5 cases per vehicle. Many families in the past have been limited to one case per distribution. This is not just bottled drinking water to the people of Flint. They are unable to bathe with Flint's water unless it is boiled. They are unable to clean their food, brush their teeth, or even clean their pets with their water. The 50,000 bottles you helped provide makes a significant impact on their everyday lives. Thank you so much again, and again.

When we asked the people how they felt about the crisis, they weren't sad, they were angry. "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." - MLK
As we drove through the neighborhoods it hit me. Each and every house I see for miles and miles have been unjustly impacted by this crisis. It is simply wrong. To get more information on what is going on with the petition in Flint visit www.StopSnyder.com

We have video documented our journey and will share it with you once it's fully complete. Thank you again, and stay tuned to see just how big of a difference YOU made.
