Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon is rallying support for Flint during the city's water crisis.

The comedian tweeted using the hashtag #waterforFlint, announcing he is donating $10,000 to water improvement efforts.

The money will go to the Community Foundation for Greater Flint to support the Michigan city's recovery from lead-poisoned water.

Fallon didn't stop there. He's calling for others to join him in donating. In his tweet, Fallon asked "how about 10 friends match me."

Also, a bottled water company owned in part by Sean "Diddy" Combs and Mark Wahlberg is pledging to donate 1 million bottles of water to the residents of Flint, Michigan.
AQUAhydrate says it's sending 5,000 cases of water to Flint and will continue to provide bottles to residents until the city's water problems are solved. The company says the water is expected to be delivered Wednesday.
High levels of lead have been detected in Flint's water since officials switched from the Detroit municipal system and began drawing from the Flint River as a cost-saving measure.
Wahlberg and Combs first invested and became the face of the Los Angeles-based bottled water company in 2013.
Eminem, Wiz Khalifa and Big Sean are among other celebrities who have pledged support and donations to assist Flint's water crisis.
