UNICEF ambassador Selena Gomez, along with Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Robin Williams, Adrian Grenier and Dwight Howard, are using their own water to support the world water crisis through the UNICEF Tap Project.
From now until April 30, bottled water from the celebrities’ homes will be part of a sweepstakes to raise money for UNICEF’s clean water and sanitation programs. For each $5 donation, participants can win an exclusive limited edition “Celebrity Tap Pack,” custom-made bottles filled with water from the homes of each celebrity campaigner.
“Celebrity involvement can highlight the value of safe, clean water, which most of us consume every day without thinking twice,” said President and CEO of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF Caryl Stern. “It can galvanize the support needed to help children who are forced to gamble with their lives every time they take a drink of water. Every day more than 4,000 children die from water-related diseases. Just one dollar provides 40 days of clean drinking water to a child in need.”
Since its launch in 2007, UNICEF’s Tap Project has earned almost $2.5 million in the United States and has aided in presenting clean water for millions of children around the world.
