As the water crisis in Flint, Michigan continues, Diddy and Mark Wahlberg have joined the growing list of artists to offer a helping hand.
Releasing a statement on behalf of AQUAHyrdate brand bottled water, the two—who both have stock in the company—announce they will be donating one million bottles of water to the citizens in need.
“The AQUAhydrate team is doing everything it can to help with this issue,” said Diddy in a statement. “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.”
With the initial donation of 5,000 cases expected to arrive in the city by mid-week, Eminem and Wiz Khalifa have both signed on to assist Puffy and the other guy in their efforts to provide additional support until the end of the crisis.
RAPPERS DOING GOOD
Others artists who have offered help include Big Sean (who donated $10,000 as part of his #HealFlintKids campaign), Meek Mill (who sent 60,000 bottles), and 50 Cent.
