1500 that number alone doesn’t mean much without context. So allow me to give it some meaning. It’s the number of days Flint, Michigan has been without clean and safe drinking water. Now you may ask who is to blame for this tragic number, who could have been so callous as to let an entire city in a first world nation go without safe water? The who isn’t important, at least not as important as the what, as in what can you do to help?
On June 16th, 2018 my friends and I will be doing a 24 hour round robin style streaming event via our twitch channels. My team currently consists of Cordilia Chase, Retr0Lag (the o is a zero), Kenji Savage and myself SaltineKing. We’re raising money for the United Way of Genesee County who will be using the funds to purchase cases of bottled water for the residents and families in Flint, Michigan who have been without water for so long.
Join us by watching our channels, help us by spreading the word and if you can, support us by donating whatever you can afford towards our efforts. Our goal is going to be a modest $2,000, but maybe with a little luck we can far exceed that goal. More information will be available in the coming weeks leading up to the event, such as donation link and time tables for the streams/streamers.
Please if nothing else, share this info with as many people as possible. We’re trying to cast a wide net to pull in viewers and hopefully donations too. 3 out of the 4 streamers are from Michigan originally and we hate seeing our fellow citizens go through so much discomfort.
UPDATE 6/7/2018: We’ve managed to get a clothing company to sponsor us! UNEEK Collections has offered 10 T-shirts to be given to randomly selected people who donate $30 or more.
Make sure you leave an email address with your donation so we can connect you and UNEEK.
We’ve also got our donation link set and our time tables posted. So follow this link to know more!
