Jaden Smith and Jada Smith are doing more than the government to ensure Flint has clean water.
Since the U.S. government is doing little to help Flint, Jaden Smith's taken it upon himself to try and bring clean water to the Michigan town. Earlier this month, he announced that he'd be teaming up with First Trinity Missionary Baptist Church to introduce a mobile water filtration system. More recently, the rapper and his mom, Jada Pinkett Smith, went to Flint to unveil their new filtration system.
Jaden and Jada Smith went to Flint to rollout their revolutionary mobile water filtration system called "The Water Box" in collaboration with 501CTHREE. The filtration system works to reduce lead and other contaminants that have been affecting residents during the current water crisis. They rolled out the system at First Trinity Missionary Baptist Church earlier this month. Residents could bring jugs to The Water Box on Thursdays from 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.
First Trinity Missionary Baptist Church has worked heavily over the years to bring clean water to Flint, previously donating reportedly 5M water bottles to the residents of the city, USA Today reports.
Jaden has also teamed up with The Last Kilometer, Rethink H2O, Black Millennials for Flint, and 501CTHREE to help bring the water filtration system to Flint.
In addition to the Water Box, Jada Pinkett Smith pledged to donate money to Flint for long-term solutions for the water crisis.
