In response to state officials’ decision to close water PODS, Mayor Weaver stated, “We did not cause the man-made water disaster, therefore adequate resources should continue being provided until the problem is fixed and all the lead and galvanized pipes have been replaced.” -April 2018

FLINT WATER FESTIVAL

A FUNDRAISING PROGRAM TO PROVIDE SAFE WATER

The Flint Water Festival is an annual charity event that raises funds for water and resources to mitigate health effects, and provides a platform for artistic expression to improve the community’s social and emotional development on July 4, 2018. It will feature entertainment, activities, and educational presentations in Flint’s downtown, cultural and college life districts.  
ALL DONATIONS WELCOME!!! 


RICH Kids, Inc. is a non-profit, charitable organization committed to providing education and entertainment programs in an effort to counter the adverse health and social effects of the ongoing water crisis. The organization serves as the holding company for the Young H20 Leadership Program, Drippie's Water Conservation Show, SAFEWATER4ALL campaign and the Flint Water Festival, which embodies the core tenets of its mission: Fitness, Arts, Tech, and Education. 


Flint, Michigan is the tip of the iceberg.
— Erin Brockovich
 


In January 2016, two years after Flint switched their water supply from Lake Huron to the Flint River in an effort to save money, President Barack Obama declared a state of emergency. Nearly 100,000 residents, including 12,000 infants and toddlers had been exposed to lead contaminated water—spreading panic throughout the city and sending shockwaves of disbelief across the nation. Four months later Obama came to Flint, sipped the water and deemed it undrinkable for pregnant women and kids under age 6. 

 FEMA stepped in to provide water, filters, and lead test kits; however, the assistance ended on August 14, 2016.  

In response to these trying circumstances, the FLINT WATER FESTIVAL
was inaugurated in 2016 to address the immediate need of a continuous, reliable source of water, filters, and lead testing kits. 

 

"Before the July 2016 Fireworks in Flint, MI, we take a look at the events leading up to it." -Jonathan Frantz
