Have you ever wondered what your favorite celebrity’s tap water tastes like? Probably not, but celebrities like Selena Gomez, Rihanna and Taylor Swift have joined forces with Unicef’s Tap Project to give everyone the chance to have a taste, and in doing so raise awareness about the importance of clean drinking water, and raise money to combat the world water crisis.
The Unicef Tap Project
In 2007, Unicef started the Tap Project in New York City, and asked restaurant clientele to donate $1 for tap water which they would normally drink for free. All of the proceeds went to provide children around the world with clean drinking water, and since then the program has been adopted by restaurants across the United States. This year, thousands will be taking part during World Water Week, running March 20 – 26. If you own a restaurant and want to take part in this incredible program, be sure to visit this link.
This year, to raise awareness even further, they have started the Celebrity Tap Project, and used celebrities Selena Gomez, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, and Adrian Grenier to promote the water.
Getting celebrities like Selena Gomez, Rihanna, and Taylor Swift Involved
The “Celebrity Tap” bottles won’t be available on regular grocery shelves – after all, that would be a lot of water to drain from the celebs’ taps – but the “most famous” tap water in the world is a great prize to encourage donations from regular people. To enter, you only have to donate $5, and you have the chance to win these collectors’ items in a fancy case (also known as the Ultimate Deluxe Celebrity Tap Pack [Limited Edition]).
Check out the tongue-in-cheek video promoting the bottles below:
Saving lives with clean drinking water
More important than the limited edition bottled tap water to show off to your friends is the donation you are making: every dollar you donate provides safe water to a child in need for 40 days. Since the minimum donation is $5, your donation will make an enormous impact in the lives of thirsty children around the world.
