Water. A simple and basic need. Unthinkable to imagine that some go without… but for America’s homeless that is the reality. I Am Waters Foundation is in the business of hydrating America’s homeless by providing bottles of water inscribed with HOPE, PEACE, LOVE, and DREAM. The Foundation is photographing those without a home, so we can see for ourselves that homelessness could be you or me. I’m grateful and honored to lend my image to draw attention to this important cause. As an American, it is with deep pride that I say, thank you and keep up the good work!
