Water, water everywhere, but not a drop to drink! ...alas, much like Samuel Coleridge lamented 300 years ago, the world may be full of water, but not enough people have access to it. An organization, Charity:Water, hopes to change all that and recently got a helping hand from Origins' during the launch of Smarty Plants, a CC SPF 20 Skin Complexion Corrector. Here are some scenes from the rooftop launch party in NYC.
