What is your cause and how will it make the world kinder?
We are a community service club from Rockford High School in Rockford, Michigan and we raise money to build water wells in the Dominican Republic. Our goal is to give them safe drinking water and eliminate water borne illnesses which would get kids back in schools instead of getting water for their families. We also built a school structure and food distributions too. We raise the money by going around to the schools in our district and teaching them about the water situation in the Dominican.
How will you use the $10k?
We would use the money to help fund our trip, to buy supplies and to buy more wells. Which well costs about 5,000 dollars so that could potentially get the Dominican two more water wells.
What impact do you hope to make?
We hope to eliminate water borne illnesses, free up the hospital beds, and make a cleaner safer environment for the people in the Dominican Republic.
