SGY-010472Breaking News! UNICEF announced today that musician/social entrepreneur Pete Wentz will be the national spokesperson for the 2010 UNICEF Tap Project.

The UNICEF Tap Project is a grassroots initiative that will take place during World Water Week 2010 (March 21-27) and invites individuals to donate $1 or more for tap water at participating restaurants to provide clean water to children around the world. Children? Tap water? Does it get any better than that?

About the new position, Wentz said:

“It’s truly an honor to be the national spokesperson for the Tap Project and support efforts to provide clean water to children in the developing world. Water is something that we as Americans often take for granted but the reality is, the lack of clean and accessible drinking water kills 4,100 children under the age of five every day and as a new father I have become highly attuned to the needs of children everywhere. Unfortunately, it’s usually when emergencies like Haiti occur, that the importance of clean water really becomes apparent to the rest of us.”

Since 2007, the Tap Project has raised roughly $1.5 million to help provide clean drinking water for indigent communities around the world. We like!
