Raise a Glass (Then Instagram It) to Support World Water Day

Today is World Water Day, which brings awareness to the 663 million people who don't have access to safe water, and we can't think of a better way to celebrate than offering aid. We've found you a way to do exactly that by performing a simple task you probably already do at least once a day—posting a social media snap.

Today through Earth Day (April 22nd), when you Instagram a shot of your raised glass (could be a wholesome green juice, a boozy bevvie, or anything in between) with the hashtag #RaiseItForward and tag @absolutelyx, premium vodka brand Absolut Elyx will donate a week's worth of water to someone in need. Follow the lead of celebs like Jaime King and 'gram your glass ASAP.
