Matt Damon & Water.org urge you to take action for World Water Day

George Clooney isn’t the only actor-activist making a splash this week. In honor of World Water Day coming up on Thursday, March 22, Matt Damon, actor and co-founder of Water.org, released a video today urging people to “take action by donating your voice to the cause.” He reminds us of the tragic reality that “almost 1 billion people are forced to spend countless hours scavenging for even the smallest amount of water.” But Damon’s co-founder, Gary White, brings good news: “There are solutions for this,” he says. “We just need to have the resolve to get this done.”

Watch his video below:

Something “so basic and so simple” should be accessible to everyone — and you can help. Visit the organization’s World Water Day page and learn about how to spread the word through social media.
