We are seeking to raise funds to distribute "Family" and "Community" size Lifestraws to hard hit rural areas of Puerto Rico. One LifeStraw "Community" provides 264,000 gallons of safe water - that's enough to provide safe water to 100 people per day. A LifeStraw Community costs about $400 delivered to the island. The LifeStraw company is partnering with us to get these water filters directly to those in need in the underserved areas of Puerto Rico where potable water is not available. These water filtration systems remove bacteria such as Leptospirosis which is a huge problem in Puerto Rico. All donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law, and you will recieve an emailed receipt upon contributing. For more info, please go to www.lifestraw.com AND http://lifestraw.com/our-story/
LifeStraw Community is a high-volume, point-of-use community water purifier with built-in safe storage, which provides microbiologically safe drinking water for schools, health facilities, workplaces and community settings.
