Watershed program lands $1,000 donation


The Rainy River Watershed Program is the proud recipient of a $1,000 donation from Bilt Designs Inc. on behalf of Anne Collinson of Toronto.

Collinson entered Bilt Designs’ “Clear Blue Water Contest” and won the opportunity to select a charitable organization to receive the money in recognition of their work for clean, safe water around the world.

The idea behind the “Clear Blue Water Contest” was to name one of three new stainless steel water bottles designed by Bilt Designs Inc.

Contestants entered online, and three winners were chosen by a judging panel.

In addition to the opportunity to donate to a charity, the winners received 24 of the bottle design they named to share with their friends and families.

Collinson’s entry was “Kaze.”

The other contest winners were Brian Skow of Scottsdale, Ariz. and Joseph Mudge of Saint John, N.B., who donated to WaterAid and Watercan, respectively.

Bilt Designs Inc., based out of Vancouver, B.C., manufactures cleanly-designed, BPA-free stainless steel water bottles that do not rust and will not leach chemicals.

Their mission is to be a socially- and environmentally-responsible business that offers first-rate products that support an active and healthy lifestyle.

Rainy River First Nations and the Rainy River Watershed Program would like to thank Bilt Designs Inc. and Collinson for bestowing us with a generous donation.
