Today marks World Water Day, an awareness raising initiative started by the U.N. in 1993.

The stats are devastating: About one in nine people do not have access to clean water; half of hospital beds worldwide are claimed by those suffering from water-related illnesses; 1.5 million children die each year from water-related illnesses. Change is necessary.

In conjunction with Drop4Drop, an organization which working to provide clean water worldwide (which happens to be founded by Adele’s husband, Simon Konecki), celebrities are getting the word out and communicating how clean water initiatives deserve more attention and help.

The stars’ method is simple: flash a W sign on social media. See Adele's example here:
