Story Behind WaterBrick

Recently we were honored to have Dow Chemical sponsor us to deliver a keynote speech at The Conference Board in Boston.  We were asked to speak about the importance of clean water and the socially innovative product of WaterBrick to a group of about 100 people that managed corporate giving programs of some of the largest U.S. companies and we got to meet again with GlobalGiving there as well.

One of the biggest questions we get asked by many people is, "How did WaterBrick get started?" and we were asked that again at this conference.  Since the speech was filmed, we thought we would share our story at http://youtu.be/XGGHGuPekrc; helping others was and is our primary mission.

The second part of my speech, not in the above, is equally important, partners like YOU, Dow Chemical and GlobalGiving.  Some of you participated with us through your employee contributions from companies like Dell, Nike, Discovery, Colehaan, Converse, Capital One and others; we noticed.

While our work in Haiti is having a big impact, the Cholera epidemic is spreading and mutating.  Cholera will be with Haiti for the next decade or longer if we don't do something more.  It is spreading to nearby islands and now to South Florida.  It is mutating causing people to get reinfected.  If we want Haiti to begin to take care of themselves, they have to overcome water-borne disease so they can start rebuilding their lives.

Thank you for your help.  We appreciate your continued involvement either through donations or partnerships.  You can reach us at 877-420-WATER if you have any questions or ideas.
