Back to the beginning of CSS water projects:

Water is an essential element of life and during the World Peace Gathering, held in Orange County in December 2009, CSS has decided to select Safe Water as our Green Project to help provide safe, clean water to countries that are in need of such resources in the third world. Also at the World Peace Gathering, CSS has demonstrated to the attendees how the LIFESAVER® water purification bottles works. These bottles do not use any chemical to purify water, they simply filter out all water-borne pathogens creating safe, sterile drinking water very fast from unclean water sources such as lakes, river, ponds, etc... These filters treats up to 99.9% of virus and bacteria in waters. The bottles can filter up to 4000 or 6000 liters of water (depending on the model) and a medium jerrycan provides up to 20,000 liters of safe drinking water.

After the World Peace Gathering, CSS learned that Lifesaver USA will team up with Operation Blessing International to provide safe water to Haiti. We decided to be their partner in that project and contributed $15,000 of the money collected for the water project during World Peace Gathering. The people in Haiti received the water filters.
