Thoughts on MTV Jay-Z Water Documentary
Okay, okay…it was really good. We told you yesterday about the Jay-Z Water for Life documentary summarizing what Jay-Z learned and saw in Africa. It was on last night and it was intriguing, educational, and overall a great program.
You could actually see Jay-Z learning. He may not be my ideal green idol, but he went there with an open mind. He walked with the kids to collect water, and could hardly manage to carry the container that these girls carry every day.
Everyone loved Jay-Z – it’s incredible how you can be a huge celebrity no matter where you go. He went into a school and all of the kids got out their camera cell phones to take pictures with him. Yes, they have camera cells but no water or plumbing.
In another village, Jay-Z visited a school where he got to see his donation in action. He donated a Play Pump – a water pump that looks and acts like a merry-go-round, but as the kids are playing, the water is getting pumped. Incredible idea.
Jay-Z later makes a comment, we say we’re from the ‘hood…that’s nothing compared to this.
You can now watch the whole program on MTV Overdrive. Sorry, Jay-Z, for busting your chops earlier…this turned out pretty nice. Now you’ve just got to take a look at some more parts of your life and see what you can change to make an even bigger difference.
