Russell Simmons Pledge To Provide One Million Water Bottles To Flint

On Monday, Simmons teamed up with his prepaid debit card company, RushCard, to deliver 150,000 water bottles to local residents. He also attended a town hall meeting about the city’s ongoing crisis. During an interview with CBS Detroit, the hip hop mogul and philanthropist empathized the importance of celebrities helping Flint residents:

We want to reach out to them first and let them know … we are trying to deliver bottled water and we are trying to push for change, we have to figure out who is responsible, and negligence is a funny thing — if you drive your car and you run into a kid by mistake you can go to jail, that’s negligence, here is a place where we were aware there was danger, and possibly the governor should be brought up on charges.
