I’m not into golf, I suck at the sport, and other than a few big names I wouldn’t recognize a professional golfer if he came up and introduced himself to me. However, those into the sport are getting a kick out of the new video, “2.Oh,” from PGA tour stars Ben Crane, Bubba Watson, Rickie Fowler and Hunter Mahan. Together, they’re the Golf Boys and they’re back with an encore performance to benefit charity.
The professional golfers are using the money earned from the “2.Oh” video to support charity:water.
From the charity’s official website:
“One of our goals behind making fun videos on YouTube is to raise awareness and support for a crisis that is anything but fun: the clean water crisis.
Imagine if you had no clean water. Imagine walking 5 hours (almost as long as it takes Ben to play a round of golf) to the nearest river to collect water for your family — water that’s not even clean. Imagine giving that water to your kids.
While this might seem unimaginable to us, it’s a reality for 800 million people in developing countries. Every day, 5,000 kids die from water-related illnesses before they reach their fifth birthday. It doesn’t have to be that way. There are simple solutions like drilled wells, spring protections and BioSand filters that help provide clean water to communities around the world.”
We started this fundraising campaign to help charity: water build these types of projects around the world. We’re donating 100% of the proceeds from Golf Boys “2.Oh” to charity:water.”
