LOS ANGELES, Jan. 25 (UPI) -- Mark Wahlberg and Sean "Diddy" Combs have been investing stock in AQUAhydrate, a high performance water bottle company since 2013 and they can rest well knowing that their money is also going toward a good cause. The alkaline-based water company has pledged to donate 1 million bottles of water to the residents of Flint, Michigan during their water contamination crisis.
The company announced that they are sending 5,000 cases of water to the area posting a pic on Twitter of a truck being loaded with the brand's beverage.
"We are currently loading up 5,000 cases for Flint," read the caption.

The Los Angeles-based company said the water will arrive Wednesday.
The Boston Globe reported that the company promised to "continue to provide bottles to residents until the city's water problems are solved."
Eminem is another big supporter of the crisis relief program headed by AQUAhydrate. The rapper posted to Twitter saying, "Proud to support efforts of @AQUAhydrate in the million bottle water donation for people in Flint. More to come."

High levels of lead were detected in Flint's water since 2014 when the city switched from the Detroit water system to drawing water from the Flint River in order to save money.
When news of the crisis broke out CNN reported that "lead piping elevated lead levels 10 times higher than they had previously measured. A local hospital discovered that the percentage of Flint children with elevated lead levels nearly doubled after the switch."
Rappers Wiz Khalifa and Big Sean are also supporting the efforts towards safe water in Flint.
