Houston Woman Gives Cold Water, Words of Hope To Homeless | Houston Chronicle
Elena Davis was touched by a simple request from a homeless woman on a hot summer day not long ago. Sitting at a stoplight, she saw the woman moving car to car.
She expected the woman to ask for money. Instead, she was thirsty; she wanted water.
Davis’s kind heart and determined spirit went to work. She imagined a charity driven by compassion for those who live on the margins of society. Her dream became the I Am Waters Foundation that this past summer distributed 80,000 bottles of cold water to the city’s homeless. Each bottle bears a single word of inspiration — Peace or Hope – and the foundation’s logo.
