Farewell Jin Zidell - A Monumental Figure In Water
16 June, 2023
Jin often said that Blue Planet Run was the most important thing he ever did.
The truth is that his life was a series of important things. With each human interaction, in every moment, Jin worked to show his humanity and kindness.
He told his story about how he was just a Jewish junk man, but he knew how to dream big and chase the dream to the end with passion and a twinkle in his eye.
Blue Planet Run 2007 was the greatest event he seeded: 95 days across 16 countries.
And, he published the book.
And before that he supported the building of the Peer Water Exchange and for a few years funded water projects around the world.
What an amazing life he led! Jin always said, he was not the author of the story, but rather a character in it. Some characters are so special that they start a new story!
As they would say in Japan: Arregato Gozaimashita Jingu-san!
The Peer Water team will do its best to keep your water legacy alive.
