LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles based wanu water has partnered with Bethenny Frankel and her B Strong program for women and families in crisis to provide over 26,000 bottles of wanu to support ongoing Hurricane Maria relief efforts in Puerto Rico. The team effort brought together partners including Playa Del Rey 4 Puerto Rico, the disaster relief charity Delivering Good and the Global Empowerment Mission to provide the aide.
“The need for relief is enormous and we’re honored that we were able to partner with Bethenny to quickly provide this aid” said wanu founder Dr. Todd O’Gara. “We have also provided wanu for Hurricane Harvey disaster relief in Texas and to fire fighters in Northern California; a total of more than 100,000 bottles in all. Our team felt a mandate to step up our support in the wake of the recent natural disasters striking the U.S.”
“Bethenny Frankel’s Bstrong initiative has made a big impact on people recovering from the recent string of disasters, and it has been great working with her,” said Delivering Good’s Marketing Director Peter Paris. “Her network of contacts and even larger fan base has been so supportive with donations of emergency supplies and cash for gift cards. The donation and shipping of wanu water has been especially helpful for those hit by Hurricane Maria, and shows the compassion that companies can have for helping people in need.”
The relief shipment reached Puerto Rico on October 20, 2017 and is being distributed by the partners on the Island.
