This Professional Sand Castle Builder, 7 Years Old, Is Best Water Advocate Ever

Posted: Updated:

Hunter is only 7 years old, but he’s already quit conventional schooling to pursue his calling of building sand castles at Venice Beach.

Fine. We’re pretty sure this dreamer hasn’t really given up on academics yet, but he does star in a very sweet PSA in which he puts the finishing touches on sand structures and stresses the importance of pursuing passions and providing water for kids in need.

The precocious kid points out that thousands of children die every day because they lack clean water. It’s a disheartening statistic that People Water –- the company behind the video –- is helping to reduce by providing an equal amount of clean water to developing countries for every bottle purchased. The company, co-founded by season eight "Bachelorette" winner Jef Holm, has sponsored wells in Nicaragua, India, Ghana and Haiti.

Hunter explains: “4,320 die every day because they don’t have clean water, so why not just help out where we can?”

Well said, Hunter. Well said.
