"The Game" donates a groundbreaking amount of $1,000,000 to the Selfmade Foundation that has teamed up with Avita Water to provide bottled water to help bring needed relief to the citizens of Flint, Michigan during the deadly water crisis.
LOS ANGELES, Jan. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Game and Avita Water (@Avitawater) joined forces to help the citizens of Flint, Michigan with the deadly water crisis by The Game donating a total of $1,000,000 in water bottles." He posted to his public Instagram (@Losangelesconfidential) challenging celebrities alike to donate to the water crisis. An excerpt from his post is below…
"To those who think it's easy getting this water to Flint, it's not so the people who are PLEDGING they are, show us. We want proof!!! Stop using others tragedies for your own celebrity gain... You're not fooling ANYONE - The Game."
Avita Water is sourced from an Artesian aquifer that was discovered in 1942, in Northern Michigan, and has been in production since 1997. Made in the USA, all of the products and components that go into the production of Avita Water are insourced from American Companies.
To help combat the crisis, on January 26, 2016, 1400 cases of Avita Water were donated to the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan, which marks the first of many future donations of cases of bottled water. This first donation constitutes an initial amount of 33,000 bottles of water which will be continued as long as there is a need in Flint. In addition to this, Avita Water has partnered with the SelfMadeFoundation.org to help the people suffering from Flint's water crisis. Multiple water donors and companies who want to help are having difficulties with transporting and distributing the water to Flint citizens. This is due to the extremely cold weather, which is freezing the water. The excessive weight of the water needed at that capacity makes transport nearly impossible, and there is a lack of storage to secure the water in correct temperatures.
Avita Water Production Facilities are located in Roscommon, Michigan, approximately two hours outside of Flint, MI.
We are helping to bring needed relief to the citizens of Flint, MI during this deadly water crisis. Instead of donating water that cannot be stored securely, we encourage donors to donate to the SelfMade Foundation.
