Puff Daddy’s AQUAhydrate company says it will send 5,000 cases of water to Flint, Michigan.
Puff Daddy and Mark Wahlberg’s AQUAhydrate company is planning to send 5,000 cases of water to Flint, Michigan, the Associated Press reports.
The company says it will send the first shipment Wednesday (January 27) and will continue to send water as the crisis continues.
Puff Daddy and Wahlberg are partnering with Eminem and Wiz Khalifa to send the water to the city. The Bad Boy Entertainment boss said on Twitter that they are donating 1 million bottles.
“RT the news!” Diddy says. “@Mark_Wahlberg @Eminem @WizKhalifa & I are donating 1 MILLION @Aquahydrate bottles!! #FlintWaterCrisis.”
“Proud to support efforts of @AQUAhydrate in the million bottle water donation for people in Flint,” Eminem writes on the social media platform. “More to come.”
Meek Mill and Big Sean have also donated to Flint, Michigan. The city’s water has been poisoned with lead since the water supply switched from the Detroit water system. Earlier this month, President Barack Obama declared a national emergency.
