Jimmy Fallon is on a roll. On Sunday he Tweeted that he was sending $10,000 to Flint, Michigan for bottled water. He asked 10 friends to join him.

Jimmy’s not the first celebrity to send water to Flint. Cher partnered up with Icelandic Glacial water for a 180,000 bottle donation. The water is already being delivered.

So far, Jimmy’s been joined in his efforts by Madonna, Rosie O’Donnell, Seth Meyers, and Jon Cryer. They’ve all chimed in on Twitter promising their own $10K. (Actually, Madonna– who was born near Flint– could send a million bucks, but all donations are welcome.)

So now let’s see who joins the group. People are dying in Flint, Michigan from poisoned water.
