Help Flint NOW!
$3,119 of $2,000 goal
Flint, MI. a city with over 60% African-American residents, does not have drinking water. Our bothers and sisters in Flint are consuming contaminated water with toxic levels of lead.
We MUST do something as a community other than creating a catchy #hashtag and talking about it on Facebook, so we are committing to sending 400 cases of water to Flint.
We will be shipping all cases to:
Triumph Church, 1657 Broadway Blvd., Flint, MI 48506
What's happening in Flint, to tax paying citizens of this country, is totally unacceptable. We can no longer sit idle and do nothing. The onus is ON US. For the price of a cup of coffee or a lottery ticket, you can gift the sustainable gift of water for $3 a case.
Please consider donating to help us get 400 cases of water to the residents of Flint.
Onward and upward,

Because of that message and the support of all of you, we were able to send:
300 (40-pk) cases - sent to Triumph Church in Flint
389 (35-pk)cases - collected and delivered by community/business/school groups throughout the city
50 boxes of baby wipes
689 cases, 25,615 BOTTLES OF WATER! That's right! You're support sent 25,000 bottles of water to a city in need.
We did it! Thank you all!

The crisis is far from over. Please continue to share and if you can donate again, please do. No donation is to small. A case of water is $3.98.. We blow $4 everyday so no donation is to small!
