We want to give a special thanks to HTHH supporter, Rachel Flynn, who lives in Crossville, TN for hearing about our opportunity with Lamar Advertising and then offering us space on Flynn Signs Co., Inc. in Crossville, TN!

She and her husband Tom within hours were able to post our Water=Hope message up on 2 billboards in Crossville on their Flynn Signs.

We're excited to partner with Flynn Signs!

 

We want to thank the Lamar Advertising Company for creating and posting the billboard below in small and medium size markets across the nation beginning this week! They are helping us spread the word across the country that YOU can help bring safe, clean water to people around the world.
I arrived in Guatemala almost two weeks ago. The experience of walking out of the airport into Guatemala City is a five-sense sensation—the colors, the voices, the rain, and the pollution that you can smell and taste. The intensity hasn't lessened at all since getting here.
Your Advocacy Saves Lives

The Water=Hope Campaign celebrates that on Monday, September 20, 2010, the Senator Paul Simon Water for the World Act passed through the Senate unanimously.

We want to thank the leadership of Assistant Senate Majority Leader Richard Durbin (D-IL) and Senator Bob Corker (R-TN) and their cosponsors for sponsoring this bill which places water in the forefront of America’s development priorities, seeking to reach 100 million people around the world with sustainable access to clean water and sanitation over the next six years.

Journey of Action

This August, Kassidy and Ryan Brown of Nashville, TN will be driving the Pan American Highway-from Alaska to Argentina. A six month expedition that will take them into 14 different countries, covering over 15,000 miles. They will be volunteering with and showcasing social entrepreneurs, non-profit organizations, universities, and high schools that are making a positive impact locally and abroad.

Two filmmakers will document the journey. Kassidy and Ryan will blog daily, upload their photography, and most importantly produce weekly webisodes. The webisodes will aim to entertain, educate, and inspire social activism within the Millennial Generation.

Kassidy and Ryan will aspire to be the social leaders of Generation Y, who are some of the world’s most influential, globally wired, technologically savvy and socially conscious people in the world, by bringing them the content they crave through the medium they consume.
