Throughout both music history, countless artists have written and expressed messages about their wallets, habits, or any of the norm. Time and time again, we see artists coming up and making names for themselves, but few artists actually go and take their careers into influencing the lives of others positively. Separating himself from the pack, Travis Karter uses his art to help benefit a much larger cause, which is the constant problem of finding clean water in many places across the world.
In 2015, Travis founded a non-profit organization called “Water Is The Answer” purposed to provide access to clean water worldwide, an effort to which he donates a significant portion of his professional earnings. Without any obligations, this is a huge task to take on, and something that Travis does not take lightly, garnering the support of Cornell as well as Harvard already in his efforts.
“His charity, Water is the Answer, served to raise nearly $10,000 for the construction of a sanitary well in Arondizuogu, Nigeria, and Karter maintains that this is only the beginning.” – The Harvard Crimson
