Matt Damon goes on strike!

Yup! Matt is on strike. Not from acting, but from using the toilet. The new campaign has the purpose of raising awareness towards the global water crisis, championed by Water.org foundation. You can participate by using the hashtag #StrikeWithMe on Instagram. Check the website: strikewithme.org.

“The concept of experimenting with comedy to generate new levels of awareness and participation in the cause is something we’ve been toying with for a couple of years,” said Damon, who co-founded Water.org in 2009. “If Sarah Silverman and I can generate millions of views on YouTube for something ridiculous, then we should be able to do better for one of the most important and solvable issues of our time.” (LATimes)
