$15,000 to provide 300+ families water filtration systems
$50 gives one family clean drinking water for years to come.
When you get to the point where you’re having success and you’re doing what you love, the natural next step in life should be to do whatever you can to help make other people’s lives better.
When you provide clean water to a commuinity, it changes their life. The villagers in Ethiopia were so thankful.
We're working to help people who need it most. We're starting at the most basic level to provide one of life's most basic needs — water.
We never know the worth of water until the well is dry.
« After experiencing first-hand what it's like to live without clean, running water, Nyjah Huston and his mother Kelle Huston wanted to do something about the world water crisis. So in 2008, they formed a non-profit called Let It Flow, received 501(c)(3) status from the US government and began selling reusable water bottles at their local farmer's market. » — From ESPN (read more)
Since then Let It Flow has installed and fixed wells for communities all over the world and is about to embark on its 72nd project, this time teaming up with Travel & Influence to distribute Sawyer water filters in Cambodia and Thailand.
« My mom came up with the idea for Let It Flow from our experience living in Puerto Rico. For a couple of years, we lived on this farm that was 30 minutes from the city. We were pretty far away from everything, and the water would go out every now and again. When the water was out, my brother and I would go down with these big jugs for carrying water. What people don't realize is that water's really heavy. We lived near this little stream that was probably about 300 yards away from the house, and having to carry that little amount is not easy. It's gnarly to think people all over the world have to do that every day, and carry it for miles and miles. It really makes you appreciate how easy we have it on the daily and makes you want to reach out and help make other people's lives easier. » — Nyjah from Paper Magazine interview (read more)

« My mom and I started the Let it Flow charity a few years ago, and it's been a really cool process trying to help people repair and build clean water wells around the world. We've done multiple projects already, and each well we repair or build helps provide clean water for a couple thousand people. It's really an amazing feeling. » — Nyjah from Elite Daily interview (read more)
« Huston invited a group of pro-skater friends to Ethiopia to help repair wells and build the country's first-ever skate park. When he and his mom, Kelli Huston, told skateboarding legend Tony Hawk about their plans, Hawk decided to come along. "We were all so excited that he wanted to be a part of what we were doing," Huston says.
