A girl walks into a bar, and Matt Damon offers to buy her a drink...

Ok, so this might be my fantasy world. But we can get close! If you'd say "yes"to a beer from Matt Damon, watch the clip below:

Here's the problem - around the world, 1 in 10 people doesn't have access to clean water. Did you know it takes about 1000 gallons of water to make a pair of jeans? In the last three months I have bought 3 pairs of jeans, making my footprint over 3000 gallons of water. All of us fashion lovers are a part of this problem, me included.

Matt Damon doesn't like this. More specifically, he doesn't like that we waste water on things like denim while people all around the world don't have enough clean water to live on. So he partnered with Stella Artois to make a difference.

Stella created the Peru Chalice, a beautiful limited edition beer glass which helps women in Africa get clean water through (a nonprofit organization co-founded by Damon). For every glass you purchase, Stella gives 5 years worth of clean water. Just last year, the Buy A Lady a Drink campaign provided more than a quarter of a million people with 5 years of clean water.

The way I see it, having a beer out of this glass is basically the same as having a drink with Matt Damon... and you get to help women around the world. Cheers!
