Big things coming from Big Sean for the young residents of Flint!
Big Sean has launched a campaign to help the children of Flint, Mich., in response to the city’s water crisis that has lead-contamination threatening the community’s health.
Beyond immediate physical health problems, developmental issues have been linked to lead poisoning in children, so Sean has launched a Crowd Rise campaign called #HEALFLINTKIDS to put money towards the Community Foundation of Greater Flint Michigan’s “Flint Child Health & Development Fund.”
“I’m raising money to support the kids of Flint Michigan. Toxic water in Flint has rendered the water undrinkable and put the entire city in a state of emergency. Flint’s children were hit the hardest and some have experienced permanent and potentially devastating health defects from lead poisoning,” states Sean on the fundraising website. “We know the needs of Flint children exposed to lead, particularly those most vulnerable – children ages 0-6 – are ongoing and long-term. You can be assured that your gift will be used for critical interventions today and well into the future.”
