THE STORY:

For the past few years for my birthday I have been raising money for people who need access to clean water. Unfortunately this year our own country has failed to get safe water to the people of Flint, Michigan and children who drank (and continue to have to drink) that water have already been exposed to lead. The kids who were exposed will need help going forward and I found an organization in Flint that I would like to donate my birthday to this year. Donating to the Flint Child Health & Development Fund is the single-most important action you can take to ensure long-term change for the better in response to the water crisis in Flint. They know the needs of Flint children exposed to lead, particularly those most vulnerable – children ages 0-6 – are ongoing and long-term. When you make a donation to the Flint Child Health & Development Fund, you can be assured that your gift will be used for the long term health and development needs of Flint children exposed to lead. Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha of Hurley Medical Center, founding donor of the Flint Child Health & Development Fund who has been at the forefront of this issue, says “If there was ever a time to invest in our children, it is now. Our Flint children deserve every opportunity to be healthy and successful. The creation of this Fund will further ensure that our children are afforded the resources and interventions to overcome this population-wide exposure to lead.” A gift today to the Flint Child Health & Development Fund will be used to aid children with interventions that support positive health outcomes for Flint children, including: Crisis response Optimal child health & development Early childhood education Continuous access to a pediatric medical home Access to infant and child behavioral health services Nutrition education Healthy food access Safe & healthy home environments Integrated social services Research
