Help Matt Damon & Jodie Foster Provide Water to Mothers Around the World

This Mother's Day, Matt Damon and Jodie Foster would like to challenge you to honor mothers everywhere by helping end the water crisis around the world.

As the two stars explain, mothers around the globe do their best to provide for their children -- but in most of the Third and Fourth World, it's nearly impossible for them to find life's basic necessity, clean water, for their families.

As keepers of the home, mothers disproportionately bear the burden of feeding their households, and with usable water scarce, these moms face an unthinkable choice: "certain death without water, or possible death from illness," Foster explains.

"With nearly a billion people lacking clean water, there's much work to do," she continues. "At, we are bringing women together, helping them to access safe water. This crisis is solvable in our lifetime."

Without clean, safe water, thousands and thousands of mothers will lose a child to water-borne diseases, but it doesn't have to be that way. For a nominal donation of just $25, you can save one child from dangerous water.

"Let's honor our moms and give them the gift of clean water," Damon challenges.
