If you missed it, Matt Damon accepted The Joel Siegel award for his work with Water.org on Friday night, Jan. 14, at the Critic’s Choice Awards. Watch the four minute video here. Emily Blunt introduces Matt, Jimmy Kimmel provides comedic relief with friendly jabs, and Matt talks about the water crisis and what we can do together to make an impact.

Interesting water facts:
884 million people lack access to safe water supplies; approximately one in eight people.

3.575 million people die each year from water-related disease.

The water and sanitation crisis claims more lives through disease than any war claims through guns.

Poor people living in the slums often pay 5-10 times more per liter of water than wealthy people living in the same city.

An American taking a five-minute shower uses more water than a typical person in a developing country slum uses in a whole day.
