Tap the Flow 24 and WaterNow have collaborated to create a campaign that combines powerful music, art and sustainability to inspire meaningful action.
100 % of your generous donations will directly support this project. We will be able to purchase all required materials and operations needed, and you have the opportunity to purchase this exclusive music piece and limited edition art pieces as a statement of our gratitude for helping us.
In 2017, WaterNow reunited with Little Big Medicine in Wheatfields, AZ, also known as the Diné or Navajo community, and learned about clean water access needs on their reservation.
The Diné community has an abundance of water rights and a rich history of reservoirs. However, there is limited running water to homes and the freshwater supply is contaminated. Drought – an effect of global warming – has caused lakes that were once a source of clean water to dry up.
We are on our way to reaching our $10,000 goal for this project. Revenue from this fundraiser will be used to purchase water filters, pumps, a rainwater catchment, and supplies for the new watersystem. In addition, we will employ Diné community members for the project build and purchase materials from local sources.
WaterNow will use funds to:
– Construct a submersible pump system from the existing water source
– Install UV purifying filter water system
– Install a new water station, piping, and increase plumbing to homes and community kitchen
– Collaborate with the local community to maintain the system
100% of your donations will directly support increased clean water to the Diné community – enhancing quality of LIFE on the reservation for over 1,000 people.
– Increase number of homes with water access and increase available gallons
– Reduce waterborne contaminants and bacteria in drinking water
– Install rainwater catchment to maximize available resources
– Employ Diné community members to help construct the system
“We previously met with the President and leaders of Little Big Medicine Inc., Danny John and his wife Levina John. They are excited about the possibility of the system and say that it will greatly enhance well-being, health, and morale of the community.”
In this Navajo (Diné) Nation community in Wheatfields Lake, Arizona, approximately 1000 people experience poor quality drinking water. There’s an abundance of water rights and a rich cultural history,yet a lack of water flow which has caused lake reservoirs to dry up. Contaminants have resulted in illnesses that have been reported in the community. Help us help this strong, beautiful community with clean drinking water!
With these donated funds, WaterNow will purchase rainwater catchment tanks, piping, water filters and materials. We will employ local labor and source local materials. We’ve met with President of Little Big Medicine Inc., Danny John and his wife Levina John on numerous occasions at their Sundance ceremony. They feel this project will greatly enhance well-being, health, and morale of the community for generations to come.
