Hays PureWater Launches $10,000 Campaign To Save Lives

WASHINGTON, IA, November 25, 2014 — /EPR HEALTHCARE NEWS/ — 783 million people live each day without clean water and 3.4 million die annually from a lack of pure water. To combat these staggering statistics, Washington-based nonprofit, Hays PureWater, launched a crowd-funding campaign. The money raised will fund 30 Khlor Glen technology units to purify water for 150,000 individuals. The organization hopes to raise $10,000 by December 1st.

Hosted on crowd-funding platform IndieGoGo, the project offers nine sponsorship levels. Each level includes novelty “rewards” for donors, ranging from stickers to t-shirts to a trip to Haiti. The rewards are unique, innovative and hands on, giving donors a sense of ownership in the project. For just $2,500, an investor can travel to Haiti (all inclusive) to see the life changing benefits first hand.

The Khlor Glen is a simple unit that turns salt water into chlorine. The chlorine treats infected water, removing deadly impurities and toxins in just one hour. It’s solar powered and easily used in remote areas, where clean water is most needed. “It will also impact malaria zones as it can be used as a bug repellant and protect from disease,” says founder John Hays. “Even just using the chlorine produced by the unit as a sanitizer can cut down on so many infections that the natives in these areas don’t even know exist.”

In the last eight years, Hays PureWater distributed over 4,000 purifying units around the world, changing entire communities by implementing this system. It’s proven to work. Hays builds each system with the help of a dedicated group of volunteers. Nothing is outsourced, ensuring the most effective product for the lowest cost. Now all they need is help from their community to change the lives of those in need once more.

ABOUT Hays PureWater
In 2006, after traveling around developing nations on missions trips, John Hays began to create a low cost, portable solution for water purification. John, who worked with municipal water works for over 30 years, put his experience to use and developed the Khlor Gen system. Through the years, the design and look has been changed and improved, but the mission has stayed the same. The organization exists to provide people with clean water, reaching out to them through word and deed. Eight years and 4,000 units later, that mission continues full steam ahead.

Robison Orthodontics has announced it will be buying back Halloween Candy from all East Valley Arizona Banner Health Employees at $2.00 a pound and then matching the total candy purchased at $2.00 a pound for their donation to the Banner Health Cardon Children’s Medical Center in Mesa, AZ.

According to Robison Orthodontics’ Office Manager Kris Kellis, “this year will be our eighth annual candy-buy-back donation drive and we’re all excited about our first collaborative sponsorship supporting the Cardon Children’s Medical Center in Mesa, Arizona. We’re hoping this will drive other Banner Health local Community Organizations to do the same.

Last year, we raised a total of $4,000 for several Mesa and Gilbert Schools, and the 2,000 pounds of candy we bought back was donated to our troops serving overseas. This year we expect to make it a Banner Year with our Arizona Banner Health Employee participation”.

How The Banner Health Employee Halloween Candy Buy Back works

After the trick or treating is finished, children can bring their candies to the Robison Orthodontics Mesa and Gilbert office locations:

• 1355 S. Higley Road Suite 105, Gilbert
• 1635 N. Greenfield Road Suite 103, Mesa

The child or children must be present to receive their cash payment and Candy contribution will be limited to four pounds per employee, and eight pounds limit per family, details can be viewed on our Mesa Orthodontist website” says Kris.

When Banner Health Employees Can Bring In Their Halloween Candy.

The Banner Health Employee Halloween Candy buy back event takes place on Thursday, November 1, 2012 from 8:00 am through to 5:00 pm.

“This is one of the ways we have decided on giving back to our host community of Mesa, Arizona,” says Kris, who considers this event a charitable one that’s turning candies into a financial contribution to support the Cardon Children’s Medical Center, and also bring a little sweet treat to our US soldiers serving overseas.
