Last month, Ecorazzi told you that Matt Damon‘s organization Water.org, which aims to provide safe drinking water and sanitation to people in developing countries, was given a $1 million dollar prize by Hult International Business School.

The prize was awarded as part of an annual competition that invites students from the world’s top business schools to develop a solution to a major social issue.

Curious to know how Damon’s organization will spend the cash? Well, now you can find out!

Water.org is hosting a public conference call tonight, December 1, at 9 p.m. (ET) to answer questions about the organization and to announce upcoming projects.

Although Damon will not be in the line, Water.org’s International Programs Manager Heather Arney will be availabe, as will Chief Community Officer Mike McCamon, who will talk about the third generation of the organization’s field reporting tool, my.Water.org.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Damon said, “Every 15 seconds, a kid is dying because he or she doesn’t have access to clean water and sanitation…So it’s hard to wrap your brain around the notion that there are little girls who can’t go to school because they’re spending their days gathering water.”

Stop by Water.org to get all the conference call details!
