"IN FALL 2016, 151 DRINKING WATER ADVISORIES WERE IN EFFECT IN FIRST NATIONS ACROSS CANADA. MORE THAN 100 WATER ADVISORIES ARE ROUTINELY IN EFFECT, WITH SOME FIRST NATIONS LIVING UNDER ADVISORIES FOR NEARLY 20 YEARS." -GLASS HALF EMPTY, DAVID SUZUKI FOUNDATION  -- OUR MISSION To bring good quality drinking water to every home, every reserve, every treaty, and every territory that would benefit from a home purification system - for free. Birch Bark Coffee Company, through the sales of its coffee, plans to take immediate action to elevate the on-going “Boiled Water Advisories” in Ontario and help the other provinces across Canada. For every 40 bags of coffee sold, we will be able to equip one home with a water filtration unit for their home. We have collaborated with Can-Am Wellness to purchase their certified Belkcraft Four-Stage and Six-Stage Water Filtration Systems, and plan to install them at no cost to Indigenous families and communities suffering from poor water conditions on every reserve in Ontario.  Birch Bark Coffee Company is First Nations owned and operated. Our Founder, Mark Marsolais-Nahwegahbow, is Ojibwe and a Band member of Whitefish River First Nation located on Manitoulin Island, and is proud to offer a product that gives back to his communities.  --  -- HOW YOU CAN HELP We can't achieve our goal without your help - either through the purchase of coffee or donations through this campaign, you are helping us achieve our goal of providing clean drinking water to our Indigenous communities who have been suffering for far too long.  We have been able to secure water purification units through CanAm for $97/unit - far less than the $300 retail price - and every dollar gets us closer to ensuring another home has access to a basic human right like clean water.  If you can afford $1 or $100, we are incredibly thankful for your support and promise to work tirelessly towards reaching this goal.  Visit www.birchbarkcoffeecompany.com for more information.
