Moving to Puerto Rico over 2 years ago has given me the blessing to fall in love with the island and its incredible people. Hurricane Maria has devastated the infrastructure and taken away many of life's necessities. Not the least of all is clean drinking water. Many of the population is still without power and water almost 1 month after Maria. The lucky ones that do have water are not able to drink it without either boiling or purifying the water. Please join me in contributing Lifestraw products that are so essential for those that are most in need. These products do not need any power to clean and purify the water and are even more important for those that are relying on water from rivers and streams to drink from. We would like to raise $20,000 to purchase, ship, and distribute these water filters. It can literally save precious lives. To help meet this goal, I will match all contributions up to $10,000. PLEASE HELP if you are in a position to do so! Thanks so much!!!
Due to the overwhelming number of storms and flooding hitting the Southern United States, several Caribbean islands and Puerto Rico, we have expanded our Relief Fund to cover additional areas experiencing boil water notices and lack of clean drinking water. LifeStraw has always felt a responsibility to respond to problems of water quality around the world. The company is making initial donations of product to affected populations and the Safe Water Fund helps us to expand the number of people we can reach. Together, we can help affected communities access clean drinking water in times of crisis.
One LifeStraw Go provides 1,000 gallons of safe water – that’s equivalent to over 8,000 single use plastic bottles.
One LifeStraw Community provides 264,000 gallons of safe water - that's enough to provide safe water to 100 people per day.
