Sagaponack’s Jimmy Fallon just made a sizable donation to help the people of Flint, Michigan, and he is asking others to join him.

“Happy Sunday!! I’m donating $10,000 to http://www.CFGF.org . How about 10 friends match me? #WaterForFlint” Fallon tweeted. CFGF is Community Foundation Greater Flint, which is providing Flint residents with clean drinking water. Flint’s water supply is contaminated with lead since the city changed its water supply to the Flint river. The corrosive river waters caused lead from the pipes to leach into the water.

Long Island native Rosie O’Donnell responded to Fallon, saying that she followed in his footsteps and made a donation.
