A billion people worldwide do not have clean water to drink and every 15 seconds a child dies from a preventable water related disease. How do 1 billion people not have clean water to drink? To be honest this probably comes from our own faults. I am not an environment freak but I do believe in recycling and helping out our own planet.
Thankfully there are people dedicated to helping out the cause. PUR teamed up with a host of celebrity activists (including Jessica Biel, Lupe Fiasco, Kenna) and educators to create Summit on the Summit, the climb up Mt. Kilimanjaro to raise action and awareness of the water crisis. I'm actually proud of these celebrity activists. Usually celebrities are spokespeople, however, these actually took the challenge. To watch the journey of these brave celebrities, go to MTV.com.
You can also text SEND to 90999 to donate $10 to the UN Foundation on behalf of Summit on the Summit to provide 1000 liters of clean water.
