Farewell Jin Zidell - A Monumental Figure In Water

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.
