CHER DONATES MORE THAN 181,000 BOTTLES OF WATER TO FLINT

Feeling Rebloggy



"After reading about Flint’s plight—more than 100,000 people have been consuming tainted water since 2014—Cher contacted her friend Brad Horwitz, an investor in the spring water company Icelandic Glacial. Horwitz connected Cher to the company’s chairman, Jon Olafsson, and communicated her wish to make the [181,440 bottle] donation.
These bottles will begin arriving January 20 at the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan. From there, they will be sent to food banks and community centers for distribution to residents who live below the poverty line, a demographic that comprises about 40 percent of the city’s population. After use, the food banks will recycle the bottles and keep the money raised in the process.
