reversecommuter is walking the runway…in bare feet and carrying jerry cans!
Clearly this is not for Fashion Week – but it should be! Wednesday August 21st at the W Boston is hosting “Walk with Purpose” to raise money for charity:water, a non-profit that provides drinking water to developing nations with 100% public donations.
I read an article in the New York Times a few weeks ago that really peaked my curiosity. It was about Scott Harrison, founder of charity:water, taking a bunch of actors, activist and techie ka-zillion-aires to Ethiopia on a water mission. Click here to read the NY Times article that started my new obsession. Scott was a nightclub promoter in NYC in an earlier life and can probably make water sexier than Evian! Who else could hire an old plane and fill it up with the likes of Matt Mullenweg (hello co-founder of WordPress), Nathan Hubbard (ceo of Ticketmaster), Tony Hawk & Sophia Bush and set off to Ethiopia? Imagine my surprise when I was invited to W Boston’s WaterWalk?!?!
The W Global Music Director, Michaelangelo L’Acqua will be spinning the WaterWalk – so you just know that SoundHound and Shazam apps will be VERY busy that night. Dare to dream there will be a playlist provided!
He has had Jessica Biel, Sophia Bush, Jessica Alba, Seth Myers, and other Hollywooders strut their stuff on the Waterwalk, and now it is reversecommuter’s turn….
If you are near Boston and want to come support this phenomenal event, please rsvp to W Boston.
