All of the BLI chapter leaders agreed that we needed to do something about the water crisis in Flint Michigan. The more research we did, the more we discovered that as awareness wains for the issues in Flint, the support also decreases. We also found that there are an estimated 2000 households that have, either, no access to relief efforts or have no idea that the water they are drinking is poisonous. So, in Big League Impact fashion, we have created a way for us to have some fun and make an impact in Flint Michigan.

It has been amazing to see people around the country unite to bring awareness to this great cause. Nobody in our country should be poisoned because they do not have clean water, and to think that 100,000 people have been exposed to this in a concentrated area is unimaginable. Let’s do something about this. Let’s have a Big League Impact in Flint!
We are passionate about funding effective charities. This means that we examine all sources to determine which existing charities are doing the best job of making impact with the dollars entrusted to them.
