More and more people are joining the recovery and assistance efforts in Flint, Michigan as they do their best to deal with an intensifying water crisis, and today, Diddy, Mark Wahlberg, Wiz Khalifa and Eminem have joined forces to deliver 1 million water bottles to the city.
Since 2014, Flint political representatives and residents have been begging for the national government to lend an ear to their growing problem, which has now spiraled out of control, leading to the Michigan governor being invited to testify about the issues before Congress. Last week we saw Meek Mill donate thousands of bottles and dollars to the city of Flint, and he was joined a couple days later by Big Sean. Today, several members of Hip Hop–and Mark Wahlberg–made big contributions to a city that desperately needs it. Eminem–a Michigan native–Wiz, Diddy and Wahlberg have teamed up to donate one million bottles of Diddy and Wahlberg’s joint water venture, AQUAhydrate, to Flint, and the city should be receiving the generous contribution this week.
Kudos to those guys, and other celebrities who are taking the time to help those in need.
