Stella Artois and Water.org co-founders Matt Damon and Gary White are rallying America to “Pour it Forward®” by choosing Stella Artois to help end the global water crisis – and they’re challenging some famous friends to spread the word, starting with SJP. “Pour it Forward®” is Stella Artois’ take on the goodwill trend of “Pay it Forward” – where enjoying a Stella Artois triggers a donation to Water.org to help provide access to clean water for someone living without it.
Sarah Jessica Parker will pay homage to her iconic role of Carrie Bradshaw to underscore that the simple act of changing your usual drink to a Stella Artois can help make an impact. In a fun spin on the Sex and the City opening bus scene, we see what might happen if Carrie were to change up her usual drink of choice, a Cosmo, in favor of a Stella Artois.
“Enjoying Stella Artois helps provide access to clean water for someone in need,” said Sarah Jessica Parker. “If Carrie was made aware of this important and fantastic partnership and initiative, I’m sure she wouldn’t waste a beat putting down her Cosmo and opting for a Stella, and I know that she would encourage all of her friends and audience to do the same.”
Stella Artois and Water.org are also debuting a new video featuring Water.org co-founder Matt Damon, who shares how simple it is to help change someone’s life. A beer is slowly poured into a Stella Artois chalice, triggering adjacent images of taps turning on in the developing world to represent the impact this small action can have around the globe.
“Through our partnership with Stella Artois we have already helped change millions of lives, and we have the opportunity to change millions more,” said Water.org co-founder Matt Damon. “That’s why we’re asking people to ‘Pour it Forward®’ and help give access to clean water… simply by enjoying a Stella Artois.”
It’s easy to get involved. For a limited time, every Stella Artois helps provide access to clean water for someone living without it*:
- Every six-pack sold gives access to 6 months of clean water for one person in the developing world.
- Every twelve-pack sold gives access to 12 months of clean water for one person in the developing world.
- Every pour (or bottle) sold at bars and restaurants gives access to 1 month of clean water for one person in the developing world.
So why wait? Grab a Stella and enjoy if you are at least 21 years old and not driving. Enjoy!
