“I’ve been following the crisis in Flint for a very long time and we started off by sending bottles of water but I felt like that wasn’t enough because people were showering with bottles of water and they need more,” he shared about getting involved and creating The Water Box.

He added, “I wanted to create something to give to Flint so they could get bigger quantities of clean water to use for cooking, for showering, they have to use it for everything.”
