The Flint Michigan Water crisis started back in 2014 when the water source in Flint, Michigan was changed from Lake Huron and the Detroit River to the Flint River in order to make water cheaper for residents. Even today the problem is still relevant because the state spent over half a billion dollars to fix the issue, but many people still believe the water is not fully clean and state officials did not take action in time to solve the issue, resulting in many people’s loss of trust in them. Insufficient water treatment allowed lead to seep into the water, exposing Flint residents to contaminated water. We plan on donating the money raised to The Community Foundation of Greater Flint. The donations received that go towards The Community Foundation of Greater Flint will help go towards the Flint Kids Fund. The Flint Kids Fund will help to make an impact on the lives of Flint children who have been exposed to contaminated water. Their programs help to aid children who are ages 0-6 to provide support for an early childhood education, a medical home, healthy food, as well as a family for social and emotional support.
