Recruit this Second Grader!
Isiah Britt of Gainesville Virginia wanted to help the students of Flint Michigan by sending them water. When told by the Eisenhower school that outside clean water was already being supplied, he asked what else he might do. The answer: "Kids are afraid to wash their hands. We can use hand sanitizer."
So Isiah and his mom set up a "GoFundMe" page that raised close to $1,000. He contacted Purell and told them he would pay for a shipment to Flint. Purell responded by donating lots of cases to Flint.
