At risk of saturating the site with Christmas themed posts, here is one that just needed a mention. This year water.org is launching a campaign to make the must have Christmas present a ‘water bottle’. Check out the video with Matt Damon titled “Damon Claus for a Cause” promoting the bottle and enjoy the kids hilariously honest responses.
Damon Claus for a Cause
Already a supporter of Matt Damon both in his films and outside, this is another example of him being bigger than his celebrity status. Footage of Damon being interviewed as part of the Save Our Schools march this year already has him in favor with many teachers and parents, and this short clip will no doubt boost that popularity again.
Damon seems to be one of those few celebrities that doesn’t take himself too seriously. His interaction with the children is very amusing and the fact the kids have no idea who he is makes it even funnier. It is great to see him be a part of such an important cause and some of the reactions to “Damon Claus” are just priceless.

Water.org is founded by Matt Damon and Gary White, and is a nonprofit organization that has transformed hundreds of communities in Africa, South Asia, and Central America by providing access to safe water and sanitation.
Ten dollars from every bottle purchased supports water.org in their effort to provide clean water to people around the world. Support the cause and give the gift of clean water this Christmas.
