Burbank, CA – Jaden Smith is continuing to deliver on the promise he made aiding in the Flint Water Crisis. His company, JUST water, deployed a mobile filtration system to Flint this past March and now the young philanthropist is gifting the deprived city with another in Ellen’s name.
Smith surprised Ellen with the contribution while appearing on The Ellen Show. “Wow, that’s amazing Jaden, you’re so sweet … that’s incredible,” the daytime television juggernaut responded.
JUST water linked up with First Trinity Missionary Baptist Church to deploy the filtration system called “The Water Box.” The device will reduce harmful contaminants such as lead in Flint’s water. The company has donated over five million water bottles, but The Water Box will allow residents to fill up to 10 gallons of water in 60 seconds.
The multi-faceted artist also discussed skydiving with his family and performing at Coachella, calling it “the most exhilarating moment” of his life.
Jaden Smith will embark on the IGOR tour headlined by Tyler the Creator in August. The 20-year-old superstar will also play an alternate reality version of Kanye West in the new Showtime series, Ominverse.
