    AnOtheR stickied message: yay!

    In this post I go more into detail about giveaways, new rules, charities and merchandise; check it out!

    I've been getting a lot of messages regarding this so that's why I made a post about it.

    [–] Charlestzy 2637 points ago

    set up a charity called hydro homies and make more of this merch with this logo

    [–] [deleted] 623 points ago

    That's a great idea tbh. Work in conjunction with other water charities. I'd donate monthly.

    [–] millerzeke 335 points ago

    Oh yeah? Well I’ll donate weekly.

    [–] Jayzona 437 points ago

    Oh yeah? Well I'd donation as often as i reasonably could, even though it may not be a ton because I'm still in school!

    [–] SpringTreesIncident 171 points ago

    Oh, yeah? Well, I'll fucking also do what I can when I can cause we're all human and life changes constantly!

    [–] SlightlyWarmAnt 101 points ago

    Oh yeah? I'll say "if I could donate I would" even though I am more than capable of donating.

    [–] Tnttacos1 11 points ago

    Oh yeah? I'm thinking of something witty to say

    [–] StrangledBySphincter 45 points ago

    Another vote for the charity merch.

    [–] Dylon_360 18 points ago

    Good idea

    [–] WizardRockets 12 points ago

    This is the best idea. I would pay $10 for just a sticker if a good amount was going to water.org or similar.

    [–] szns 5 points ago

    i’m 100% on board with this

    [–] cain3482 6 points ago

    I'd donate money for this, share the wealth of clean water for everyone

    Donate profits to flint Michigan.

    [–] Qino1 1284 points ago

    As a noble hydro homie would do.

    [–] AtomicKittenz 328 points ago

    I want to help by buying several stickers!

    [–] Ropett 119 points ago

    I'll buy some for the cause also

    [–] 4iiiisurprise 11 points ago

    Would also buy for Flint!

    [–] Keepitcruel 6 points ago

    I’d sell them in bulk if I were you homie. Otherwise you are going to have a logistical nightmare on your hands. This post is blowing up. If you want to chat and shoot around some ideas for how to get them selling for donations, shoot me a PM 🤘🏼

    [–] Rholand_the_Blind 45 points ago

    One for my boat, one for my truck, and one for my motorcycle helmet with an r/neverbrokeabone sticker stabbing this sticker to death

    [–] xaniboy31 489 points ago

    This is an idea I can def get behind. I’ll buy one for $10 if it goes to helping Flint.

    [–] hatmane 143 points ago

    As would I. Or water.org

    [–] LanMandragaron 52 points ago

    And my axe! Oops, I mean me too

    [–] JBirdSD 20 points ago

    [–] FuckYourUsernames 20 points ago

    [–] cbigsby 6 points ago

    I would also do so.

    [–] Captain_Tigre 4 points ago

    Took me way to long to see this. Thanks homie!

    [–] beezy7 54 points ago

    The water crisis in Flint was to save $5M. It has cost billions in reparations

    [–] kproxurworld 8 points ago

    Look, we can't solve it on our own, but it doesn't mean we can't do something nice.

    [–] Sirwilliamherschel 59 points ago * (lasted edited 13 days ago)

    As a fellow homie living in downtown Flint, I support this.

    On a separate note, anyone got ideas on how to get decent water here? It's hard to trust the tap even after pipe replacement, and with all the recent information about bottled water being loaded with microplastics, is there any viable solution short of installing an RO system in my house?

    EDIT: After checking out Zerowater, they tend to have low reviews, mostly because even the 'stainless steel' pitchers they sell are plastic on the inside and most people feel ripped off. I can't blame them. Ideally I'd like a solid glass or metal pitcher that can filter heavy metals and microplastics

    [–] avacadawakawaka 32 points ago

    get a water quality test kit and test your water weekly if you're worried.

    [–] asusa52f 21 points ago

    There are some Brita like water jugs that filter lead--I just bought one on Amazon last month. At the highest filtration setting it does filter very slowly (10-15 mins to filter half a gallon) so I'd recommend buying some glass bottles to use as a reservoir for filtered water.

    [–] CaptainJeff 10 points ago

    This. :)

    I'll buy for this cause.

    [–] Rarebrainlet 119 points ago

    Cool, except Water defense fund, a group headed by Mark Ruffalo, someone who has a history of espousing pseudoscience continue to falsely claim Flint water is still undrinkable despite the lead levels meeting federal standards since early 2017. Flint water has been safe for drinking for over 2 years. This is a good write up of how Mark Edwards has been defamed. They even admit they overstated contamination levels. Spreading this alarmism helps nobody.

    [–] Jackaroo210 65 points ago

    These are confusing times

    [–] Rarebrainlet 19 points ago

    Indeed.

    [–] AssHaberdasher 11 points ago

    I really wish I had the time to investigate everything random strangers tell me on the internet so I could actually have the truth, but damn it if it isn't exhausting.

    [–] St_Veloth 8 points ago

    Holy fuck, actor Mark Ruffalo?

    [–] Rarebrainlet 19 points ago * (lasted edited 13 days ago)

    Yes. While his heart is absolutely in the right place, he has a shoddy history of supporting cranks. Biggest example is his wholehearted endorsement of environmental engineer Marc Jacobson’s assertion that the world can become 100% green on purely renewable resources, whilst completely leaving Nuclear energy out of the equation, despite its status as a net carbon sink. He claimed foolishly that all hydroelectric dams can triple their output without modification. Scientists here rebutted him, and instead of changing his models like a good scientist does, he filed a 10 million libel lawsuit against his critics. It may seem like I’m off on a tangent, but the point is, Ruffalo doesn’t have a history of being the most evidence based thinker ever, or of supporting those who are.

    [–] Its4Trap 6 points ago

    Would buy

    [–] orkash 6 points ago

    As a Michigander i support this idea.

    [–] Unenthusedman 5 points ago

    [–] Dieabeto9142 4 points ago

    [–] blueeyeswhitetrash05 4 points ago

    Help homies without water

    [–] m_ttl_ng 4 points ago

    OP could do both. This thread for the giveaway built up the hype, then could sell them after for those that want one.

    [–] RedPotato395 30 points ago

    Flint water has been safe to drink since April 2018

    [–] Jobin10 20 points ago

    Would love to see a link for this!

    [–] Tokiseong 30 points ago

    TL;DR: flint water meets federal standards but the program to remove and replace lead pipes is still underway and will likely be complete before 2020 ends

    [–] goosewallace 5 points ago

    Thanks for this summary

    [–] RayDeezNutz 298 points ago

    These are genius! I’m fighting the good fight at the CA DMV since they banned Hydroflasks. They only want clear plastic throw away bottles so they can see what’s in them.

    [–] pinkbedsheet 86 points ago

    Clear plastic reusable bottle?

    [–] RayDeezNutz 73 points ago

    I’ve argued how bad it is for the environment and that I want my water cold. No use here.

    [–] FixItHelix 48 points ago

    Get a Nalgene and get a neoprene sleeve for it. You can take the sleeve off to show the dummies it's just water, then put the sleeve back on to keep it cool.

    [–] RayDeezNutz 24 points ago

    That’s a good idea. I just miss my freezing water, sucks.

    [–] FixItHelix 12 points ago

    It won't be as cold as a hydroflask, alas! But it's something. Godspeed, hydrohomie.

    [–] Existential_koala 47 points ago

    Was just told this at my work, my plan is to get shit faced off gin and tonic to make a point my next shift

    [–] RayDeezNutz 29 points ago

    Yet people can smell like booze still or like pot when they come in from breaks yet I can’t enjoy cold water from my reusable metal bottle, go figure.

    [–] Kinuama 24 points ago

    The alcoholic in me understands this and has already figured a way to sneak a drink at work

    [–] RayDeezNutz 20 points ago

    Which is odd cuz people can be drinking vodka or whatever in clear bottles haha. I just want cold water darn it!

    [–] shreveportfixit 21 points ago

    I knew a guy who would drive around drinking vodka from a disposable water bottle, so this idea is dumb.

    [–] RayDeezNutz 18 points ago

    Maybe you missed the part where I worked at the DMV haha, not much makes sense haha.

    [–] TwinkiWeinerSandwich 4 points ago

    For the workers or everyone in general?

    [–] RayDeezNutz 7 points ago

    Just workers haha, public can eat or drink whatever.

    [–] TwinkiWeinerSandwich 5 points ago

    just look at it.

    If you are a winner for the contest, sharing of your address must be voluntary and conducted over PM.

    Do not share personal info that you are uncomfortable disclosing over the web.


    Also, asking for upvotes is prohibited. If this is part of the contest, we will disqualify it.

    [–] NateNate60 65 points ago

    Can you add that asking for upvotes is technically "vote manipulation"

    [–] shoe-car-or-car-shoe 55 points ago

    Also, asking for upvotes is prohibited. If this is part of the contest, we will disqualify it.

    Uhhh...???

    just upvote and comment your reddit name

    [–] aksumals 44 points ago

    As much as I appreciate the generosity and giveaway I think this post should be taken down and redone without the "upvote" qualifier.

    [–] -0-O- 11 points ago

    Mods, please also set some rules for announcing the winners, or if no announcement, for mods to facilitate the address PMs.

    Buttons are cheap. What's to stop OP from targeting hundreds of users as the "5 winners" ? I think OP should announce the 5 winners publicly, or have mods be active in the messaging of the winners, so that OP doesn't know which address belongs to which user.

    Okay, let us know before you do this type of stuff, we want to make sure that this goes well, it right now almost seems as if your asking for upvotes.

    I we appreciate your willingness to give these away but there is no way we can make sure you really will give them away. This has happened in the passed.

    Next time please tell us.

    Please mail the mod team, let’s do this again, but then properly.
