“This a tragedy of staggering proportion and shocking that it’s happening in the middle of our country. I am so grateful that Icelandic Glacial has come on-board to help the city of Flint. I cannot wait for the water to get there to help these people who have been poisoned because the water they’ve been getting out of their taps has been polluted for so long and remains that way without the state or the federal government stepping in with any substantial plan to resolve this problem.”
Say what you will about Cher but she just did something that the government has been ignoring since 2014. She decided that it was time to provide clean drinking water to the people of Flint, Michigan. Cher teamed up with a company named Icelandic Glacial to provide more than 180,000 bottles of clean water to the city’s residents.
Since 2014 cases of children with elevated levels of lead in their blood have been reported since the change, and cases of Legionnaires’ disease have also seen a spike. Many believe that the water is to blame for this happening.
On Saturday President Obama finally declared a state of emergency, only after Cher tweeted about it. Now did Cher influence the President? Maybe. Clearly this issue has been ignored for years then a super star gets involved and all of a sudden it is an issue.
Thank you for using your celebrity status for good Cher, the people of Flint will appreciate your kind actions, I am sure of it.
