In America, we don’t turn our backs on our neighbors when they need help. After watching everyone on social media forget about thousands of Americans struggling due to the water crisis, we decided to create our own campaign to help Flint. #SaveFlintChallenge #NoWaterNoWall

Dear followers. Please tag people who you think care enough to at least share our campaign. So many celebrities and influential voices are ignoring us. Nobody seems to care about how hard I've worked on this campaign for Flint.

Thank you to everyone supporting me and our clean water mission. So many influential people see my tweets and ignore them. Then they tweet some dumb shit about Trump every hour. To those who genuinely support, you are greatly appreciated.
Thank you @GoFundMeHeroes @gofundme @kelsea_little for appreciating our work, and making this an unforgettable experience. Shout out to @Forbes @MLive @People @CBS6 & @CBSSunday for featuring our #SaveFlintChallenge. #NoWaterNoWall #GoFundMeHeroes

The crazy part is, if I tweet about a black man being killed or assaulted by police, it gets 100k retweets.

But when I tweet about a black man helping black communities, asking for a little assistance, to amplify an award winning humanitarian campaign, it gets ignored.

I'd like to also remind everyone of the fact that Flint residents are being ignored because the city is 57% black 41.5% poor. #SaveFlintChallenge #FlintWaterCrisis #NoWaterNoWall #AmericaHasAWaterCrisis
2 million Americans don’t have access to running water — and race is the ‘strongest predictor’ of said access. #SaveFlintChallenge #FlintWaterCrisis #AmericaHasAWaterCrisis
The government failed Flint’s residents for decades. Implicit bias and systemic "racism" ingrained in housing, education, infrastructure, and emergency management all perpetuated discrimination and eventually led to the Flint Water Crisis. #SaveFlintChallenge #NoWaterNoWall

The Trump border wall gofundme is at $25,291,300. As you see, donations are still coming in. We can't even reach $210k, and we've been campaigning hard for over a year.

Can someone please give our #SaveFlintChallenge water relief campaign a huge boost.

Confirmed a lot during this campaign. The government isn't doing anything to help Flint, because they're poisoning Americans all over the country & intentionally hiding a massive water crisis going on right in front of our eyes. #SaveFlintChallenge #AmericaHasAWaterCrisis

.@TeamPelosi When you emailed us at the start of our campaign to help Flint, you assured me we'd see results and action on behalf of @SpeakerPelosi. Flint residents feel forgotten, and water distribution programs are closing due to lack of funding. What's the plan? #NoWaterNoWall

The Trump border wall gofundme is now at $25,210,300 raised in only ten months. We've been campaigning hard for 1 year and 2 months, and can't even reach $190k. I'm extremely disappointed in myself, because I feel like we can do better. If possible, please amplify our campaign.
The discouraging and hurtful part about this Trump wall gofundme to organizers like me, is when we humbly reach out to media, celebs and influential voices to help evolve our missions to improve America—we get ignored or receive a nod for the moment. But racism gets millions.
A vet created the Trump wall gofundme, which makes this all surreal to witness for me beyond the fundraising. I’ve marched with vets at the Veterans For Peace March in NYC, who feel they're used as props by the Trump administration to glorify racist war. #NoWaterNoWall

This rule doesn't do much to fix the problems. There are 6 million or more underground lead water lines in the country, and a proposal that overlooks that isn't moving the needle on eliminating lead in water. Public health groups have urged immediate replacement of the 6M pipes.
Instead, this current proposal more than doubles the time utilities have to replace lead pipes. The Obama-era rule required replacement within 13 years, but now the EPA is proposing a 33-year span instead. #AmericaHasAWaterCrisis
Given that even during his campaign Trump saw the long-running water crisis in Flint, Michigan, as something to joke about, it was probably inevitable that we'd see a weak EPA rule that will do little to nothing to fix the widespread problem of high lead levels.

New goal. With the help of her amazing followers, Little Miss Flint raised $123,620 in less than 2 months to provide quality filters to families all over America.

I believe we can do it too -- and provide more clean water. Please donate or retweet.

I'm highly disappointed in my country. Each day I'm online having to beg people to donate & care about helping Flint. Meanwhile a killer cop sits at home with his feet up, while the world shares his GoFundMe campaign easily and he reaches $170k in 40 days. This is disgusting.
The gofundme for the cop who murdered Eric Garner reached $170,010 in 40 days. Let this sink in. Then explain to me how a murderer gets more support than a campaign to help Flint residents get clean water. I'll wait. Donate if you can. #SaveFlintChallenge gofundme.com/rvaflint-water…
It's heartbreaking to finally realize if I was a Trump supporter or killer cop, we'd be receiving more support & donations for our campaign to help Flint. #NoWaterNoWall #SaveFlintChallenge

The average person wastes up to 30 gallons of water every day. In a world where so much of the population lack access to safe water, it's shameful that we still waste so much water. And let's admit it – we've all had a role to play. #SaveFlintChallenge #FlintWaterCrisis
The Flint water crisis began in April 2014 when Flint changed its water source from Detroit Water (sourced from Lake Huron and the Detroit River) to the Flint River. Officials failed to apply corrosion inhibitors to the water. People died, thousands poisoned. #FlintWaterCrisis
Before 2010, Flint got its water from downstate. The placement of a sketchy emergency manager to run the city, was a fatal move. He favored Flint getting its water from the Flint River. #FlintWaterCrisis

The children exposed to high levels of lead-laced drinking water from Michigan's Flint River are entering schools now and the school system is straining to meet their special education needs. #SaveFlintChallenge #FlintWaterCrisis #AmericaHasAWaterCrisis edwk.it/2PiqNdZ
I'm in tears. The government did this to innocent kids. #SaveFlintChallenge #FlintWaterCrisis
I watch celebrities and politicians ignore Flint day after day, like it's no big deal. Like it's over.

Truth is, so many kids were poisoned in Flint, Michigan, that it won't be over until they all grow old and die. Lead poisoning damages the brain, kidneys, and bone marrow.
