Help Pay A Detroit Residents Water Bill

soulrevision:

Hey tumblr family, join me in doing a selfless act of kindness and compassion. There is an awful humanitarian crisis happening in Detroit as over 14,000 people have had their water shut off and the Detroit Water & Sewerage Dept plans to shut the water off for 3,000 residents per week. 

The implications are reprehensible as children are being removed from their families homes because without water, their living conditions are considered inadequate. 

We also know that the water shutoffs are about more than just collecting on delinquent accounts, it’s about gentrification and moving to privatize water.

I have gone through extensive verification to ensure that this site is legit and actually pays the water bill and helps the residents. 

I would never ask someone to do something that I wouldn’t, that being said, I signed up today to pay for someone’s water bill (and you can give whatever amount you can afford), so now I’m asking you to join me.

yourself in a world
which is doing its best day and night to make you like
everybody else means to fight the hardest battle
which any human being can fight and never stop fighting."
