Diddy, Eminem & Wiz Khalifa Pledge to Donate 1 Million Water Bottles to Flint
Following in the footsteps of Big Sean, who started his own charity campaign to help aid in the water crisis in Flint, Mich., Diddy, Eminem and Wiz Khalifa are following suit with a huge charitable donation.
The trio, along with actor Mark Wahlberg, pledged to donate one million bottles of water to the Michigan city. The water will be sent through AQUAhydrate, a water bottling company that Diddy and Wahlberg invested in. The first wave will include 5,000 water bottles then the company will continue to send bottles until the water is safe to drink again.
Although neither have made a statement about their generous move, Wahlberg shared a photo of a famous quote from Martin Luther King Jr, last week. “I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear,” read the fitting quote. “Well said! Let us all strive to be better and do better,” read the tweet by Wahlberg with a photo of the quote.
High levels of lead were found in Flint’s water system causing their water to be unsafe for months. Big Sean started a foundation, Saving Flint’s Kids, to raise awareness to the crisis.
Salute to Diddy, Eminem and Wiz Khalifa for paying it forward and helping the residents at Flint, Mich. Hopefully, more artists will join the campaign and donate.
