Yesterday Ecorazzi told you that Clay Aiken was helping UNICEF promote The Tap Project — a campaign aimed at providing safe drinking water to children around the world. Shortly after posting, the comments came rolling in with support for the pop star turned Spamalot actor. Say what you want about Aiken…but that kid has some serious fans.
Well now another UNICEF ambassador, Lucy Liu, is asking Americans to pitch in during World Water Week and pay the extra $1 for a glass of tap water to help save children’s lives in Africa. Liu is particularly aware of the problem, having just returned from Cote d’Ivoire in
Liu says, “If you go to a restaurant and they’d give you tap water for free, they’re asking you to donate a dollar for the tap water. One dollar will provide water for 40 children for one day, which is incredible. It’s kind of great – you get to go out and enjoy food with people and you get to give back in such a small and simple way.”
