It seems like a perfectly orchestrated media segue: American Idol runner up Clay Aiken goes from covering “Bridge Over Troubled Water” to helping provide untroubled water for the world’s children.
UNICEF ambassadors Aiken and the incredi-hot Lucy Liu are promoting The Tap Project during World Water Week. They’re asking American restaurant patrons to donate $1 for their normally free glass of water to help UNICEF provide clean drinking water in Africa.
Liu, who recently visited Cote d’Ivoire, says that “one dollar will provide water for 40 children for one day, which is incredible. It’s kind of great – you get to go out and enjoy food with people and you get to give back in such a small and simple way.”
Well said, Lucy. And given that the world’s cup runneth over with Claymates (yes, that’s what Clay Aiken’s fans are called), the campaign should be very successful. (Hopefully more successful than Clay’s last album.)
