The gofundme for the officer who murdered Eric Garner is at $161k in 27 days.

Our goal is $170k. We've been campaigning over a year to get clean water to Flint.

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 Pantaleo gofundme to organizers like me, is when we humbly reach out to media, celebs, etc. to help evolve our missions to improve America—we get ignored or receive a nod for the moment. But killer cops get immediate & loyal support.
It's all surreal to witness for me, beyond the fundraising because I created the #SurvivingAmericasPolice hashtag to expose cops killing unarmed black people. Watching the world fund Eric Garner's killer, during this Flint campaign was unexpected.

The NYPD cop who choked Eric Garner to death back in 2014 received a 15% pay increase after Garner's murder.

In 2019 he earned $161,348 in 27 days on GoFundMe. #SurvivingAmericasPolice #SaveFlintChallenge
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
Public Service Announcement: America is failing Flint. I'm literally showing you how weak the push is to support and save a poisoned city in the United States. #FlintWaterCrisis #AmericaHasAWaterCrisis
What I never understood, if celebs 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.

The Pantaleo gofundme if anything, proves racists invest in killer cops.
Public Service Announcement: The Flint Water Crisis worsens, city spills 2 million gallons of sewage into the Flint River. #SaveFlintChallenge #FlintWaterCrisis #NoWaterNoWall theroot.com/flint-water-cr…
Everyone please read this and share if possible. We're on a mission to help Flint residents get clean water, because the government isn't doing enough, and the media is failing at keeping the Flint water crisis a topic of discussion. #NoWaterNoWall

.@TeamPelosi When you emailed me at the start of our campaign to help Flint, you assured me we'd see results and action on behalf of @SpeakerPelosi. Flint still doesn't have clean water, and water distribution programs are closing due to lack of funding. What's your plan?
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.
I'd like to also remind everyone of the fact that Flint residents are being neglected because the city is 57% black 41.5% poor. #SaveFlintChallenge #FlintWaterCrisis #AmericaHasAWaterCrisis
The #SaveFlintChallenge mission is simple. Continue to provide water relief and support other distributors in Flint. Spread global awareness. Expand our campaign to cover other important areas.

Everyone deserves clean water. #AmericaHasAWaterCrisis

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. #FlintWaterCrisis #SaveFlintChallenge #AmericaHasAWaterCrisis
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. #FlintWaterCrisis #SaveFlintChallenge #AmericaHasAWaterCrisis edwk.it/2PiqNdZ
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.
Even low levels of lead exposure can cause health problems. This includes attention deficits, behavior problems, learning difficulties and decreased IQ in young children.

Our government crippled innocent children for life, and continues to ignore the Flint water crisis. I won't.
I've taken our #SaveFlintChallenge from Flint to the White House, and we won't calm down now.

We have to keep the pressure on our elected officials until Flint gets clean water and those responsible for the crisis are held accountable. #NoWaterNoWall #AmericaHasAWaterCrisis
.@KamalaHarris @ewarren @CoryBooker @JoeBiden If elected president how are you going to help Flint recover, what will be done to make sure a water crisis of this magnitude never happens again, & will you finally make water infrastructure in America a priority? #SaveFlintChallenge
Confirmed a lot in 7 days. I connected the dots, and fully understand why the government isn't doing anything to help Flint. They're poisoning Americans all over the country & intentionally hiding a massive water crisis going on right in front of our eyes. #AmericaHasAWaterCrisis
.@BilldeBlasio @NYGovCuomo It's time we have that one on one. We spoke with one hundred New York residents. You have some explaining to do also. #SaveFlintChallenge #NewYorkWaterCrisis #AmericaHasAWaterCrisis
.@AOC What are you doing to prevent your NY residents from being poisoned with lead laced water. #SaveFlintChallenge #NewYorkWaterCrisis #AmericaHasAWaterCrisis

The water crisis in Newark is very similar to Flint. In both cases the government was not telling people the truth. The government can't keep poisoning us. This must stop. #FlintWaterCrisis #NewarkWaterCrisis #AmericaHasAWaterCrisis #SaveFlintChallenge
Everyone meet Christopher. Great guy, over 10 years in NY. He had no idea Newark is experiencing a water crisis.

But he does know about Michigan. It hurt me telling him he's possibly being poisoned too. #SaveFlintChallenge #AmericaHasAWaterCrisis
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 #FlintWaterCrisis #AmericaHasAWaterCrisis

Flint, Newark, and the Persistent Crisis of Lead in Water: The contaminated water in Flint and Newark is not unusual, and some experts think they know where the "next Flint" will be. #SaveFlintChallenge #NewarkWaterCrisis

I'm challenging every celebrity on Twitter to join us in Flint, Michigan August 31st, and bring a truckload of water (twenty-two pallets.) #SaveFlintChallenge #NoWaterNoWall #FlintWaterCrisis
