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 $171k in 57 days. This is disgusting.
The officer who killed an unarmed man raised $171,205 in 57 days.
The Trump border wall has reached $25,141,300 in 9 months. They recently raised over $30k in 48 hours.
It took our Save Flint Challenge water relief mission 1 year and 2 months to reach $177,207. And we even had celebrities sharing our campaign.
A big reason the gofundme campaigns for Trump & Eric Garner's killer have succeeded, is because news media gave them attention and placed a link for the campaigns on their websites.

No news media or reporters have reached out to us, or placed our campaign link on their website.
Honestly, the only reason our campaign has made it this far is because I've personally clawed through it for over a year, determined to be heard. I don't have organic support from big names, I have to beg them. I don't have media on my side, I have to become the media...
I started this campaign as the underdog fighting for the underdogs, and we're still fighting. But this mission has taught me a lot. Thank you to those who genuinely/faithfully support our campaign. Racism is currently winning, but we won't give up. #SaveFlintChallenge
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
If you don't want to donate to our campaign or can't, that's fine. But 24.1k people shared the gofundme for a cop who killed an unarmed black man in broad daylight, and only 4.3k have shared our campaign for clean water.

Racism is definitely winning.
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.

If anyone reading this can help us reach our goal, please consider donating and sharing this fundraiser. #NoWaterNoWall #SaveFlintChallenge gofundme.com/rvaflint-water…
I've been busy dealing with hate messages and tweets all day, so it looks like we won't be reaching our #SaveFlintChallenge goal today on our deadline. If anyone wants to assist feel free to share our campaign. Thanks. #NoWaterNoWall
