The Trump wall gofundme is at $12M and it's only been 4 days.

Our goal is only $50k. We've been campaigning for 5 months to get clean water to Flint.

If anyone reading this can help us reach our goal, please consider donating and sharing. #NoWaterNoWall…
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
Thank you Ben Stiller for supporting our #SaveFlintChallenge campaign, but we have so much more work to do. Please tweet our campaign link and encourage your followers to contribute. #FlintWaterCrisis #NoWaterNoWall @RedHourBen

The most heartbreaking part about the Flint water crisis, is people were poisoned and died at the hands of their own government. And so many are too consumed with Trump's circus, they're forgetting about reaching back to help their neighbors suffering. #NoWaterNoWall
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 knod for the moment. But racism gets millions.
It's all surreal to witness for me, beyond the fundraising because 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
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
When it comes to campaigning "on every level" under the Trump administration—racist pockets go deep to get things done, while the rest of America can't even retweet and amplify fundraisers for clean water.

This is where we're at in America currently. #NoWaterNoWall
It's traumatic having to finally realize that supporting people with racist beliefs, is now the guaranteed way of receiving dedicated funding for relief missions in America.
Water in Flint won't be safe until all of the corroded lead pipes have been replaced and the medical community signs off on it. Until that happens, people are still lining up to get water wherever they can. #SaveFlintChallenge #NoWall
Michigan is losing kids to guns at nearly twice the rate of Chicago. But just as the media ignores the Flint water crisis, this news never gets reported. The #SaveFlintChallenge will be focusing on gun violence prevention efforts next year. Flint lives matter. #NoWaterNoWall
We can't forget the conversations that get lost after we talk pipe replacements. What plan is being devised to repair trust between Flint residents and politicians. How much will be invested into people living in Flint experiencing mental health issues caused by the water crisis.
The Flint water crisis is an environmental scandal. One of the most downplayed and disgusting examples of community malpractice currently going on in the United States. #SaveFlintChallenge #NoWaterNoWall
"Still waiting for my pipes to be replaced. I went through a whole year of cancer treatment (Jan to Dec of 2017) and worried about infection or worse. Yet another year has come and gone and no action near my block." - Carmelita Kraft #FlintWaterCrisis #SaveFlintChallenge
Disinvestment in city infrastructure, racial discrimination, political interests, suburban sprawl. All factors in this crisis.

Flint is a third-world country inside the United States. #NoWaterNoWall
In times of crisis, the wise build bridges, while the foolish build walls. We must find a way to look after one another as if we were one single tribe. #SaveFlintChallenge #NoWaterNoWall
The #SaveFlintChallenge has provided over 100k bottles of water to Flint residents. helped pay water bills. clothed and fed the homeless in Flint. given away thousands of dollars. cried with them. prayed with them. and promised we would spread awareness. #NoWaterNoWall
Thanks to all of our amazing donors, the #SaveFlintChallenge was able to assist @pastorrobbutler in Flint.

They still need us. When you support the Save Flint Challenge, you're also doing God's work and assisting Church leaders. #NoWaterNoWall

What I'm not getting is, if celebrities don't want to support our campaign, why don't they at least all come together and launch their own fundraiser to help Flint. It doesn't start or stop with me, but damn.

This Trump wall gofundme if anything, proves racists invest in racism.
How about giving all the money raised on gofundme for the racist border wall, to the family of Jakelin Caal Maquin.

The 7-year-old girl who died in U.S. custody because evil people wouldn't give her any water. #SaveFlintChallenge #NoWaterNoWall
Holding people accountable for specific and attributable offenses is an important facet of righting wrongs.

Michigan state health official currently facing criminal manslaughter charges in #FlintWaterCrisis was appointed to a new job by Gov Snyder… @maddow
Too many are just too consumed and most have given up on Flint, but will never admit it. Everyone tweets about Flint, but not many are doing anything to help Flint recover. It's like Flint is Cinderella before the Ball, and everyone is wearing the glass slippers but her.
Visit Flint, Michigan. take it all in. witness the long lines of cars wrapped around the block. listen to the people. cry with the people.

I promise you'll look at life, water, our government and tweets different. #SaveFlintChallenge #NoWaterNoWall
How to accept the challenge: You have options. Donate to our project:…

Support other organizers in Flint, Michigan and donate to them.

Create your own fundraiser for Flint and go all in like we're doing.

Whatever you decide, just help Flint if possible.
Our plan is simple. Continue to provide water relief and fund other distributors. Continue to assist with bill payment for residents. Spread global awareness. Expand the #SaveFlintChallenge to cover other important areas. Everyone deserves clean water. #NoWaterNoWall
Tapped out by its battles over lead-tainted water, Michigan is grappling with another public health crisis: It’s losing kids to guns at nearly twice the rate of Chicago. But just as the media ignores the Flint water crisis, this news never gets reported. #ZaniyahBurns
Thank you @ParisJackson for supporting our #SaveFlintChallenge campaign, but we have so much more work to do. Please share this Thread and donate if possible. #NoWaterNoWall
That time I tweeted a @BarackObama meme, made the President of the United States react and was trending in Washington. #NoWaterNoWall
