Twitter users @KristyT & @tiffani have established a program that helps Detroit water customers bring their accounts current! From their site:
“We match people in Detroit to 1,000 donors for direct water bill help. Spread the word with Twitter hashtag #DetroitWater.”
"Who started this project?
This project came from a discussion on Twitter between @tiffani and @KristyT who wanted to find a way to help people in Detroit with their water issues.
We were skeptical of campaigns collecting money on behalf of Detroit residents and wanted to find a way to verify past due bills and have donations paid directly to Detroit Water and Sewerage Department in order to help Detroit citizens reconnect their water.
Water is a human rights issue.”
