The 16-year-old actress is one of the most recent celebrities that has lent their voice to the Thirst Project, the leading youth activism organization that builds fresh water wells in developing countries. For the second year in a row, Bella stars in The Thirst Project Dirty Little Secret Campaign.
For the Dirty Little Secret Campaign, the Thirst Project is asking students to take an old plastic water bottle, remove the label, and (using the recipe for “the perfect dirty water”) cook up their best batch of dirty water to carry around in it. Students will carry this water bottle with them EVERYWHERE during the month of March; classrooms, on their desks, the dinner table etc. The goal is to shock people, get their attention, and get them to ask the students, “What the heck is THAT, and WHY are you drinking it?!?” This gives students the chance to have conversations with people about the reality of the global water crisis and how many people suffer from it.
Other celebrities that have participated in previous Thirst Project campaigns are Lamorne Morris, Willow Shields, Jillian Rose Reed, Booboo Stewart, Karan Brar, and Michael Welch.
