Heart in a Tear Drop

“Our data shows bottled water is the most common source for the homeless population, which means they rely on people to hand it out, or many buy it with their precious funds. It would help if we all handed out water freely and for cities to make public water more readily available by not turning off sources around parks.”

"Water is life, and clean water means health."

-Audrey Hepburn
