Cher announced on her Twitter page that thousands of bottles of water secured through Icelandic Glacial will be heading to the city of Flint. “Icelandic Glacial committed to doubling Cher’s purchase which is being trucked in to Michigan beginning Monday, January 18th,” reads a statement on the company’s website. “The water will reach The Food Bank of Eastern Michigan (www.fbem.org) beginning Wednesday, January 20th. FBEM will immediately begin the distribution process to those who need it most for drinking, cooking and washing.”
Kudos to Cher for not only being vocal about the problem in Flint but also doing something about it!
