Clean water is a natural resource that should be a human right throughout the world. Unfortunately, Flint, MI residents have found themselves without this most basic need.  Their water source has been tainted with lead and many are suffering from the effects of lead poisoning.  We don't personally know those who are suffering, but we feel it is our duty to help any sister or brother in need.

HBCUPridenation, HBCUWallStreet, Garden St. Inc, J&C Ent. Group, and F.E.L.P. are calling on those who care to make a donation that will help provide clean water to those in need in the Flint area.  We are a group of HBCU alumni who desperately want to help our brothers and sisters in any way we can. Our goal is to get a minimum of 30 cases of water.  We will purchase the cases of water online (via Amazon or another retailer and share a screenshot of the purchase) and ship it directly to St. John's Missionary Baptist Church in Flint that is servicing residents without clean water.

With the recent celebration of Martin Luther King's birthday, it brings to mind his poignant question, "What are you doing for others?"

Please help us make a difference!

Because of your generosity, we were able to exceed our goal for the Flint water crisis by $1000! We have now withdrawn the funds (which takes 4-7 business days) and will purchase/ship the water as soon as the transfer process is complete. I'm sure many residents in Flint will be very appreciative of your generosity. Thank you for being a part of our village!

Hello! I'd like to let you know that we raised nearly $900 more than our target goal! With the extra money we plan to buy as much water as the funds will allow and then we'll get cleansing wipes with the remaining budget. Before we can close the campaign, GoFundMe is verifying our point of contact to ensure integrity. This is a standard procedure when campaigning on other's behalf and we hope it takes no more than a couple of days. As soon as we receive approval from GoFundMe we'll purchase and ship the water.
Thanks!

The fund page will stay open until 10pm ET tonight and then the water will be purchased on Saturday and shipped to Flint, MI. We will provide a screenshot of the purchase along with the destination's address. Thank you all!
