It was noon Nov 15th when I got the text from a dear friend, can you bring over a jug of water?

No Problem, I’d be happy to.

Fast forward a few hours and there I was at the door with 2 large jugs and a easy to use water pump. Even despite being in a transitional living situation, I still had blessed clean water from Elmvale available. It was that easy to make sure the family had clean drinking water.

This is what I am really here to do, I love to help everyone. But not everyone knows what is out there when it comes to kindness, services and the future. I don’t ask for much in return for a hassle free clean drinking water solution. I just ask people continue spreading the good word.

However I find myself at a cross roads on the point of “Not every knows”. Because not everyone knows, I have funding available. Currently we have $315 according to my financial transparency page. However it will take a lot more to bring permanent solutions to larger communities. Like schools, public spaces and native communities. One thing I know is however the fund is to proceed, it will do so transparently. If I make partnerships to raise money, or do it all on my own, the main thing is helping people. But doing this with clarity is also very important. For instance when people donate, what or where is your donation pointed towards. This is important to identify what or where you want your contributions to contribute.

Upon a quick search on Google, a well looks to cost $1,000 to $15,000. So to facilitate water to large communities can be quite pricey.

With reverse osmosis systems, a complete system for a school of 400 with 1 tap can be under a grand. So even a full system for a high school could be only a few grand.

What this means is solutions are possible close to home with only a few major contributing parties.

Things to think about as I look to find communities to work with, to provide clean water for those in need.
