Bottles 4 Babies Flint Water Relief
Bottles for The Babies is a grassroots organization created by native Flintstone, Lanice Lawson. With nearly 15 years of experience in the nursing field as an RN, she knows all too well the devastating effects of lead in the body, especially in children under the age of six.
This initiative was initially created to supply the children of Flint with clean drinking water as a result of the contamination. The water in the Flint community schools has been completely shut off. Meaning, the children do not have access to clean drinking water unless they supply it themselves, and this is where we come in. With the need for clean water being so great across the city, efforts were extended to include consistent home deliveries to the elderly and physically handicapped.
The lead contamination in Flint's water has resulted in the poisoning of tens of thousands of innocent people in this community. This is disheartening. It has the people feeling not only frustrated and angry, but helpless and vulnerable. Every human being deserves clean drinking water. This is not a want or luxury. This is a NECESSITY! Since the government is Incompetent of providing this basic human right, the citizens of this country MUST pull together for the sake of humanity, and provide them with the clean drinking water they so desperately need.

Thank you so much for caring for this community. It' people like you that lets me know that good still exist in this country. I'm not sure why men like Gov. Snyder have becomes leaders in this land. But, it's men like Gov. Snyder that shows me how dark men's hearts have become. Poisoning kids, purposely, as a leader in America makes my heart break. Thank you for YOUR heart to counter the evil that men do. May God have mercy on the souls of men who put money and power above His people.
This upset me so much I started a petition on Whitehouse.gov. You can view and sign the petition here: http://wh.gov/iw85K Here's some more information about this petition: Initiate federal action against the Michigan governor & his administration for the poisoning of Flint's water & people. The State of Michigan, under Gov Rick Snyder switched the source of Flint's water supply without appropriate safeguards, to save money. It resulted in contamination of the water, with toxic levels of lead. The people of Flint have been poisoned, and the Governor should be held accountable. In addition to a federal action against him and his administration, there is dire, critical and immediate need for the assistance of FEMA and other federal agencies to assist in the cleanup of Flint's water supply.
we in NY are here to help... While caucusing in NH, we met with Senator Clinton, and a senator from Flint. We are raising funds and are going door to door, thanks to Senator Clinton and her unwavering commitment to humanity. Please contact me at your convenience.
Thanks for pitching in to help the good folks of Flint who have suffered from this avoidable tragedy. I'd enjoy seeing some photos of the water deliveries and I bet it would help further your cause. I am going to post this link to Rachel Maddow's page, so get ready for new donations :)

I am inspired by your commitment to help where you can. I will keep all of Flint residents in my prayers. I have family in Michigan and wouldn't want this to happen to my worst enemy! I will also pray that justice will prevail concerning the leaders that knowingly allowed this to happen under their watch.
Thank you so much for delivering water to my mom. With my mom taking care of my granny who is almost 104 it is nearly impossiable to get out to buy more water. So thanks to you that is one less thing she has to worry about. Thanks again you all rock.
Great job with the Bottles for the Babies Campaign Lanice! Can you all (you, Michael Moore, the doctor and Rachel Maddow) nudge the governor to temporarily relocate the good people of Flint elsewhere until the pipes of Flint are replaced?
Lancie I caught you on MHP Show! Thank you for your love.
