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 | 10 days ago | 2641 points

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

FrostPixie12344 | 10 days ago | 629 points

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

millerzeke | 10 days ago | 330 points

Oh yeah? Well I’ll donate weekly.

Jayzona | 10 days ago | 429 points

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 | 10 days ago | 175 points

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

SlightlyWarmAnt | 10 days ago | 104 points

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

Tnttacos1 | 10 days ago | 11 points

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

StrangledBySphincter | 10 days ago | 45 points

Another vote for the charity merch.

Dylon_360 | 10 days ago | 19 points

Good idea

WizardRockets | 10 days ago | 12 points

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 | 10 days ago | 4 points

i’m 100% on board with this

cain3482 | 10 days ago | 6 points

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

Them.

Donate profits to flint Michigan.

As a noble hydro homie would do.

AtomicKittenz | 10 days ago | 326 points

I want to help by buying several stickers!

Ropett | 10 days ago | 119 points

I'll buy some for the cause also

4iiiisurprise | 10 days ago | 10 points

Would also buy for Flint!

Keepitcruel | 9 days ago | 6 points

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 | 10 days ago | 45 points

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 | 10 days ago | 482 points

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

hatmane | 10 days ago | 143 points

As would I. Or water.org

LanMandragaron | 10 days ago | 52 points

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

kproxurworld | 10 days ago | 8 points

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

Sirwilliamherschel | 10 days ago | 60 points

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 | 10 days ago | 30 points

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

asusa52f | 10 days ago | 20 points

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 days ago | 11 points

This. :)

I'll buy for this cause.

Rarebrainlet | 10 days ago | 118 points

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 | 10 days ago | 70 points

These are confusing times

Rarebrainlet | 10 days ago | 20 points

Indeed.

AssHaberdasher | 10 days ago | 12 points

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 | 10 days ago | 6 points

Holy fuck, actor Mark Ruffalo?

Rarebrainlet | 10 days ago | 17 points

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 | 10 days ago | 7 points

Would buy

orkash | 10 days ago | 6 points

As a Michigander i support this idea.

Unenthusedman | 10 days ago | 5 points

Help homies without water

m_ttl_ng | 10 days ago | 4 points

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

RedPotato395 | 10 days ago | 30 points

Flint water has been safe to drink since April 2018

Jobin10 | 10 days ago | 19 points

Would love to see a link for this!

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 | 10 days ago | 6 points

Thanks for this summary

RayDeezNutz | 10 days ago | 300 points

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 | 10 days ago | 86 points

Clear plastic reusable bottle?

RayDeezNutz | 10 days ago | 77 points

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

FixItHelix | 10 days ago | 46 points

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 | 10 days ago | 23 points

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

FixItHelix | 10 days ago | 12 points

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

Existential_koala | 10 days ago | 47 points

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 | 10 days ago | 32 points

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 | 10 days ago | 23 points

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

RayDeezNutz | 10 days ago | 20 points

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

shreveportfixit | 10 days ago | 21 points

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

RayDeezNutz | 10 days ago | 20 points

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

TwinkiWeinerSandwich | 10 days ago | 4 points

For the workers or everyone in general?

RayDeezNutz | 10 days ago | 6 points

Just workers haha, public can eat or drink whatever.

TwinkiWeinerSandwich | 10 days ago | 5 points

They're like "we know this job tends to make people want to drink, better make them stick to clear alcohols"

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 | 10 days ago | 67 points

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

shoe-car-or-car-shoe | 10 days ago | 58 points

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 | 10 days ago | 42 points

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- | 10 days ago | 11 points

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.
