Matt Damon, Hayden Panettiere get Environmental Media Awards
LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Environmental Media Association is honouring Matt Damon and Hayden Panettiere for their dedication to ecological causes.
The organisation announced on Monday that the two actors will be honoured at its 23rd annual Environmental Media Awards this fall.
Damon will receive the Ongoing Commitment Award for his work with Water.org, the organisation he co-founded that aims to bring safe water and sanitation to people around the world.
The 42-year-old actor says he hopes the award brings attention to Water.org's efforts "to bring clean water to communities around the world and inspire new friends and partners to join the fight".
