Jay-Z has found a new cause to fight for, providing clean water for developing countries. He appeared in front of the United Nations on Wednesday alongside Kofi Annan to address the issue.

“Every 15 seconds a child dies from not having access to clean water,” the rapper said at a press conference at the United Nations, his partner on the project. “I want people to know that while they’re having their Poland Spring at Cipriani.” UN Secretary General Kofi Annan added, “All of us at the UN hope this campaign will motivate youth to take action … in their own lives.”

Thank You Jay-z for using your status to make a change in this world, more celebs should follow your example. Catch his story that airs on MTV Nov. 24 called Diary of Jay-Z: Water for Life.
