As part of his advocacy work for clean water and sanitation around the world, actor and advocate Matt Damon recently visited new water projects in India (and also took part in some cultural activities, thus the Bindhi mark on his forehead). While there, he took a few minutes to thank the more than 100,000 ONE members who signed our petition to senators asking them to cosponsor the Durbin-Corker Water for the World Act, and show us an example of the kind of projects this bill will support.

At the beginning of this month, the voices of over 100,000 ONE members from across the country echoed through the halls of the U.S. Senate. Your voices in support of the Durbin-Corker Water for the World Act made their way into every single Senate office. Since July 1, the day the petitions were delivered, four more members of the Senate have signaled their support and signed on as cosponsors of this important piece of legislation.
Update! We are now within just a few hundred signers of our 100,000 goal. If you’ve not already done so, please sign our petition in support of the Water for the World Act. On that same topic, check out this great post from John Sauer and Katryn Bowe of Water Advocates:
