It’s comforting to know that water is never far. But for Laguna Beach resident Kelle Huston, that’s not enough. She's the Executive Director at Let It Flow, a nonprofit organization seeking to bring clean water and sanitation to communities in need.

Living in a remote Fijian village helped Huston develop the idea for Let it Flow. “Everyday acts like washing our hands, flushing a toilet, or doing laundry became a back-breaking effort as we carried five gallon buckets of water to our household,” Huston recalls, “and although this was a temporary experience for us, we often talked about what it must be like for the unfortunate people who have to walk miles a day just to get water from a filthy stream.”

Huston, a California girl at heart, isn't taking her beach lifestyle for granted. She is continuously working to provide a solution to a heart-breaking water crisis. As Huston humbly explains, "what you do for others, life will do for you.”
