Good deed alert.
Diddy and Mark Wahlberg are the latest celebrities to donate to the city of Flint, Mich. The Midwest town made headlines earlier this month when it was discovered the city didn’t have access to clean water.
Since then, artists like Big Sean, Cher, Eminem, Fabolous, and Wiz Khalifa have donated money and water to Flint residents. Initially, the good folks at AQUAhydrate gave 5,000 cases to the city, but decided to take it a step further and donate a whopping one million bottles to the grief-stricken community.
In a statement, Diddy discussed the importance of taking action in Flint, and providing clean water to thousands of residents.
“The AQUAhydrate team is doing everything it can to help with this issue,” Diddy said. “Mark and I made an initial pledge to donate and are committed to the continued aid to Flint residents as long as they need it. We hope this commitment will inspire others to get involved as well.”
So glad to see members of the hip-hop community taking great strides to aid people in need. Keep up the good work, guys.
