REESE COOPER launches WATER IS MORE PRECIOUS THAN GOLD in conjunction with FlintKids.org to remind Americans of the ongoing effects of the Flint Water crisis.
Los Angeles, CA; Flint, Michigan; London, UK (PRWEB) May 12, 2017
Millennial creative, Reese Cooper, today launches a community project in conjunction with his brand, Reese Cooper Spoiled Children, to benefit the Flint Child Health & Development Fund (better known as FlintKids.org) in order to keep the Flint, Michigan water crisis top of mind.
“WATER IS MORE PRECIOUS THAN GOLD” is a project designed to remind Americans that although it has been more than three years since the Flint water crisis began, residents and their children are still denied access to clean drinking water.
On May 14, 2017, REESE COOPER® will release a hoodie to benefit the Flint Child Health & Development Fund, served by the Community Foundation of Greater Flint. The aim of FlintKids.org is to provide medical resources and other support programs to fight the effects of lead poisoning of the children of the city of Flint, Michigan. The profits of this special project go directly to the Flint Child Health & Development Fund.
When asked why he created this project just months after his debut collection, Reese said, "I’m a kid who makes clothes, and I thought in some way I could help or at least let the families of Flint know they are not forgotten and I care—a lot of us care. Not once growing up did I hesitate to drink a glass of water in my own home. Not once did my mom have to decide if she could afford to buy bottled water rather than run the tap. My hoodie project is small. I know that—I hope to do much more. I admire those who can create big change. But for now, this is how I can contribute and I know I can help in Flint, Michigan. Every kid deserves safe water—it’s their right.”
