A,

Just four days before their huge legal showdown with Nestlé, the people of Osceola Township seriously need your help.

Nestlé’s vast water processing plant is devastating this small community in Michigan. Like a giant leech, it sucks up 350,000 gallons of water daily to bottle for profit. The town’s stream runs ever lower.

When the township fought back, Nestlé sued them -- and now the final legal showdown is just days away.

The expert lawyers they’ve hired are expensive and costs have gone through the roof. And that’s where you come in, A.

Can you chip in to keep Nestlé’s greedy hands off Osceola Township’s water?

Guess how much Nestlé pays to pump 250 gallons of water a minute, or more than 350,000 gallons every single day, from Osceola Township? Just $200 a year.

The spring water generates huge profits for the corporation when they sell it in disposable plastic bottles, many of which end up polluting rivers and beaches.

Osceola’s water is a precious resource that should be used for the benefit of the community, not sold at a profit to pay for the private jets and fancy suits of Nestlé executives.

But you can make sure this community wins this fight. Nestlé has millions to throw at this court case, but this group of dedicated fighters in Osceola has you. With your donation today they can keep their lawyers and make sure they have the best legal team on hand in these last critical days so that Nestlé can’t pump more of their precious water.

The incredible SumOfUs community has supported this brave group in Osceola before to take on Nestlé. Together we’ve given more than $50,000 to help in the legal fight -- helping the township stay afloat and have a fighting chance.

And it’s not just Osceola -- together we’re supporting communities in Australia, France, and Canada take on the might of greedy corporations who want their water.

Climate change means more extreme weather and longer droughts. Water will only become more and more precious, so we need to stand up now for the rights of people over corporations to benefit from this life-giving resource.
