Scott left a much coveted secular career arranging liquor and party favors for rich businessmen. He became bothered by the selfishness of his life (which he attributes to his roots being raised in the church) and started Charity.
Scott focuses on water needs – like the fact that 80% of all illness comes from lack of clean water. For the price of a $16 cocktail, Scott can provide food and water for a month in Liberia. Scott has an eye for film, so by using photos and film he recruited over $96,000 in financing to create Mercy Ships that serve Liberia.
“I can get guys who used to buy $350 bottles of vodka to spend that amount on water!”
Scott’s commercial for Charity:Water runs TONIGHT (April 9th) during American Idol – the cost of which was donated by the folks at Fox. Watch tonight and spread the word!!! (If you can’t see it tonight, watch it below)
