Bruno Mars Donates $1M To Flint Water Crisis
Bruno Mars is truly a class act!
During his sold-out show for his 24K Magic Tour at the Palace of Auburn Hills in Michigan, the Grammy Award-winning singer announced he is donating $1 million of the proceeds to aid in the Flint water crisis.
The donation has been earmarked for the Community Foundation of Greater Flint.
Via the LA Times:
‘”Ongoing challenges remain years later for Flint residents, and it’s important that we don’t forget our brothers and sisters affected by this disaster,” Mars said in a statement. “As people, especially as Americans, we need to stand together to make sure something like this never happens in any community ever again.”
The Community Foundation of Greater Flint is an organization addressing the issues brought on after the city switched water sources and failed to treat the water to prevent corrosion, which allowed dangerous amounts of lead from old pipes to leach into the water.
Ayeeeeee! God bless you, Bruno!
