Spokane entrepreneur working for good causes

SPOKANE, Wash. - Amid a shaky economy, one young Spokane entrepreneur is using his business skills and his company "Time 4 Change" for a good cause, or many good causes for that matter.

Greg Gould, 23, along with his friend Patrick Collins started "Time 4 Change" two years ago. The pair sells bottled water which they have labeled "peace water." Thirty percent of all their proceeds go to a different charity each month. 

Their web site, livepeacewater.com, states "Every time you purchase a bottle of PeaceWater, you can feel confident that your money is being donated to not-for-profit charities actively participating in local and global efforts to make our world a better place to live."

The pair says that by donating 30 percent of proceeds, they are pledging that every product they sell will directly impact the amount of money being donated to charity as opposed to a fixed amount.

The only grassroots organization dealing with bottled water, they started in Montana, selling water out of the back of a pickup truck. They've since expanded to Idaho, Washington, and hope to go nationwide. 

The water comes from a municipal source in Missoula, MT.

Gould and Collins are planning live demos where they'll hand out bottled water to the public. The schedule is listed below.
