Matt Damon Received $8 Million from PepsiCo

 

When it is for the greater good you can count PepsiCo Foundation’s resources in.

Twice they have donated a considerable amount of American dollars to a non-profit organization being spearheaded by Hollywood actor Matt Damon to provide safe water and sanitation for the multitude in India.

Damon’s non-profit organization, ‘Water.org’ has reportedly received an $8 million grant from PepsiCo Foundation for its efforts to improve access to safe water and sanitation in India.

This grant is seen to help enable approximately 800,000 people in India to access safe water by March 2016.

“There will never be enough charity in the world to solve the water problem. What we need to do is double down on smart solutions which can rapidly scale safe water and sanitation access for families that are in desperate need right now,” Damon said in a statement.

“In the US, we have the luxury to debate and plan for water shortages and investments in our infrastructure. For billions, this is a daily nightmare and fight for survival. It’s visionary partners like the PepsiCo Foundation that recognizes that and I hope their example inspires others to follow suit,” he added.

Back in 2008, PepsiCo Foundation donated $4.1 million to Water.org which resulted to more than 250,000 people being able to access improved water and sanitation through initiatives funded by microfinance loans.
