Good for him.  I knew he did the smoke detector thing, but I didn't know he provided drinking water for people in Africa. 

 

He just keeps getting better every time I hear something about him.

I know it wouldn't be nearly as glamorous, but there are people in need (of things other than smoke detectors) in Detroit.

People might be needy in Detroit but they probably don't need water in the quantities Z is enabling.

Not to mention that by giving them water, it is enabling the kids there to spend hours in school instead of spending hours each day carrying water.  It opens up a whole new life for them.

 

Z also supports the Children's hospital, as well as other local things.

If you're donating your time and money for the betterment of those in need, I feel you should be immune to any criticisms of where those resources are allocated.
