2010 – Pete Wentz appointed spokesperson for UNICEF
Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz has been appointed as a spokesperson for UNICEF to raise awareness about the importance of providing clean drinking water for children around the world.
“Water is something that we as Americans often take for granted,” says Wentzy. “The reality is, the lack of clean and accessible drinking water kills 4,100 children under the age of five every day and as a new father I have become highly attuned to the needs of children everywhere. Unfortunately, it’s usually when emergencies like Haiti occur, that the importance of clean water really becomes apparent to the rest of us.”
