In the 46 years since that first Earth Day, how far have we come?
Sometimes it feels a lot like one step forward, two steps back.
And so on this Earth Day 2016 we ask you to remember all the future Earth Days facing the children of Flint, Michigan – and how uncertain that future will be.
A Message For Earth Day – Support the children of Flint, Michigan
“The 2014-2016 Flint water crisis has touched the hearts of people nationwide, and the response to flintkids.org is inspiring and deeply appreciated.
We know the needs of Flint children exposed to lead, particularly those most vulnerable – children ages 0-6 – are ongoing and long-term.
When you make a donation to the Flint Child Health & Development Fund, you can be assured that your gift will be used for critical interventions today and well into the future.”
WasteWater Education and it’s Board of Directors are making a group donation to the Community Foundation of Greater Flint to support the current and future needs of those children affected.
We are asking all our colleagues, friends and professional connections to join us!
“Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha of Hurley Medical Center and Michigan State University, founding donor of the Flint Child Health & Development Fund who has been at the forefront of this issue, says “If there was ever a time to invest in our children, it is now. Our Flint children deserve every opportunity to be healthy and successful. The creation of this Fund will further ensure that our children are afforded the resources and interventions to overcome this population-wide exposure to lead.”
