The kids at the Burbank Community YMCA had a special treat June 11 when actress Eva Longoria, representatives from Brita water filtration systems and television camera crews took over their play yard as part of Brita’s nationwide summer kick-off campaign to encourage kids to drink more water.
Brita has teamed up with the national YMCA to donate water filtration pitchers and dispensers to locations throughout the country. During Wednesday’s kick-off party, Longoria and kids made special water blends infused with fresh fruits and vegetables such as cucumbers, raspberries and apples. The kids also enjoyed some fun dancing with Longoria, made bubbles and created fruit-inspired arts and crafts.
Brita’s donation continues the brand’s support of “Drink Up,” the collaboration launched by the Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA) in September 2013. With PHA Honorary Chair First Lady Michelle Obama at the helm, Drink Up encourages everyone to drink more water more often. For more information, visit http://www.youarewhatyoudrink.org.
