Actor Matt Damon is hoping to quench the world’s thirst one water bottle at a time. Damon is selling limited edition CamelBak Groove water bottle’s on his Water.org charity website.
The bottles come in two designs, are environmentally friendly, 100% BPA-free, and $10 from every purchase will go to the charity. Water.org was co-founded by Damon and works to provide safe drinking water and sanitation to people in developing nations.
In a statement Damon said: “I think what resonates with me most is when you see people living without clean water and they’re forced to scavenge for water and basically use up all of their time just doing that. You realize that they’re in such a crippling cycle of poverty; it’s just a death spin that they can’t possibly get out of.”To order a limited edition water bottle go to www.Water.org/gift
