Elon Musk has recently had his fair share of questionable headlines. However it looks like he’s still out to do a little good in this world. In the midst of July’s rush to save the soccer team which was trapped in a Thai cave, Musk stated that he wants to do something about the water contamination issue in Flint, Michigan. According to a tweet made by Flint Community Schools, Musk is making good on his promises.
Musk surely isn’t fixing all of the city’s water issues, but he has made a pretty good start. As per mlive.com, he is paying for all the water station and water filtration in all Flint schools. This is a pretty big deal.
He has also asked Flint’s residents to send in their lead test results via mail, so that he can head out there one weekend and add some water filters in the homes that require them the most.
The Musk Foundation was established by Elon and his brother Kimbal in 2002. Though it isn’t necessarily designed to be a humanitarian organization, since its focus is on research around space travel, renewable energy, pediatrics, and science tech—but it’s pretty damn cool that the foundation is stepping up to the plate to clean drinking water to kids.
It looks like all the raucous tweeting has finally paid off for Musk.
