One of the biggest questions we get asked by many people is, "How did WaterBrick get started?" Since the speech was videotaped, we thought we would share our story at http://www.waterbrick.org/
The second part of our speech, not in the above, is equally as important. We spoke about the current need for disaster relief in Haiti and how we have received generous donations through partners like Dow Chemical and GlobalGiving;
While our work and contributions in Haiti is having a big impact, the Cholera epidemic is spreading and out of control. Cholera will be in 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 has mutated and caused people to get re-infected. As of August 2nd, 7,497 Haitians have lost their lives and over 584,000 currently have cholera with 20,000 new cholera infections each month. If we want Haiti to begin to become self-sufficient, they have to overcome this water-borne disease in order to start rebuilding their lives.
Thank you for your help. We appreciate your continued involvement either through donations or partnerships. You can donate to our Haiti Relief Fund at http://www.globalgiving.org/
