George McGraw received a Rare Under 40 award for his work with his organization DIGDEEP.

When he accepted his award, McGraw revealed that despite having a lengthy career campaigning for human rights and working to help less fortunate individuals all over the world, he had no idea there was a huge need for clean water right here in the United States.

McGraw reminded the attendees at the event that there is currently a water crisis in Flint, MI.

On the website, DIGDEEP clearly states their biggest message, ” DIGDEEP IS CHANGING THE WAY PEOPLE THINK ABOUT WATER.”

Water is something many people do not give much thought to, and as McGraw pointed out, it is a basic human right.

We are honored to have George McGraw as one of our Rare Under 40 honorees.
