Drink Up with a Splash of Magic

Last September, First Lady Michelle Obama joined the Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA) to launch the Drink Up campaign, encouraging everyone to make an easy choice to improve their health and well-being every day: drink more water.

This summer, as part of its #SpreadTheWater campaign, PHA unveiled a talking Drink Up Fountain encouraging people to drink more water more often. The fountain dispenses entertaining greetings and compliments intended to entice the drinker to continue sipping. When a drinker’s lips touch the water, the fountain “talks,” completing a circuit and activating the voice.

Unsuspecting water drinkers experienced a taste of this magic in New York City’s Brooklyn Bridge Park. You don’t want to miss it:

Regardless of where we live, what we do, or how busy we are, water helps to get us through life’s moments – whether a marathon meeting, a softball tournament, or a day at the park. That’s why PHA is challenging everyone to spread the word about water and how it powers you during those moments. Share how water is part of your life using the hashtag #SpreadTheWater on Twitter and Instagram, and see your images appear on Drink Up’s online gallery!

And don’t forget, you are what you drink, and when you drink water, you Drink Up!
