Project M Wants You To Buy a Meter

oprah.jpg

As you may remember awhile back, we submerged our brains in the humidified environs of Hale County, Alabama with the cool kids of Project M, John Bielenberg‘s graphic design for good program. Eight young designers shared the sweat with Rural Studio students, discovered paint-slathered buses, and constructed giant letterforms out of wood as they searched for a way to make a difference.

Towards the end of their month-long immersion, Project M students found a cause that they felt was most deserving of their attention. In Hale County, one of the poorest counties in Alabama (and we’d guess, the country), a quarter of the residents do not have clean water. We’ll say that again: 25% of an entire county in this country in 2007 does not have access to clean, safe drinking water. Project M produced a printed piece (in that very county, mind you) to help generate awareness and support to remedy this situation, and we’ve just gotten word that a version of the piece is now online at buyameter.org Please do check it out.
