The Thirst Project is a growing movement aimed at building fresh water wells in communities suffering from the global water crisis.  Started by college students the Thirst Project now reaches out to colleges and high schools to educate their students on the nearly 1 billion people who still do not have access to clean drinking water and proper sanitation. 
Phoebe Rose joined Michael Welch and guests at “Cocktails For A Cause” held at the retro glamour inspired Rubix Hollywood apartments.

Located in the heart of the recently gentrified old school Hollywood-steps from Hollywood Boulevard- this luxury apartment community combines Hollywood Regency glamour with a colorful, modern edge, green design, a full complement of amenities (pet friendly of course) and community living.
