AQUAhydrate investors Sean "Diddy" Combs and Mark Wahlberg announced today (January 25) that the pair have partnered with Eminem and Wiz Khalifa to donate one million bottles of water to the natives of Flint, Michigan.

In addition, the company has pledged a long-term commitment to the area, which is suffering from a crisis due to lead poisoning in the water.

"The AQUAhydrate team is doing everything it can to help with this issue," explained Combs. "Mark and I made an initial pledge to donate and are committed to the continued aid to Flint residents as long as they need it. We hope this commitment will inspire others to get involved as well."

An initial shipment of 5,000 cases are on the way to Flint and AQUAhydrate is working with Red Cross, local community leaders, the state Emergency Management system and Homeland Security to coordinate its efforts.
