RainCatcher Board of Directors
Today is a Historical Day. RainCatcher has received support and abundance over and beyond my wildest expectations. Global figures from all over the planet have connected with us and have offered support, media, fund-raising and incredible heart. It seems that the momentum in the last week has been building faster than it has in the last 7 years. People are saying “Where can I help, how can I give – It’s such a quick response and end to suffering!”
People are getting RainCatcher! Easy and simple – fast – and clean water for those who go with out!
More than 1.6 million people die every year from contaminated water – 90% of them are under the age of 5. Well I say – not for long – we’ve put the awareness out there and people are stepping up in droves and rolling up their sleeves!
Blessings, peace and water for all!

As Christmas card/gifts in the name of 63 friends, family and colleagues, Carl Daikeler, gave clean drinking water this year to over a hundred kids in Haiti (and their families).
