JARS OF CLAY, K-LOVE AND AIR 1 PARTNER FOR BLOOD:WATER MISSION RADIO-THON
21 June 2010

Multi-Platinum and three-time Grammy Award-winning band Jars of Clay, long ambitious in their plans for their charitable organization Blood:Water Mission, teamed up with K-LOVE and Air 1 radio stations to raise the necessary funds and awareness to complete Blood:Water Mission’s 1000 Wells Project, which was launched in 2005.

The band joined forces with K-LOVE and Air 1 for a day-long Well Done Campaign radio-thon Tuesday, June 8, and raised over $860,000 for Blood:Water Mission. These donations will fund the construction of 95 water projects, leaving the organization only 15 shy of their 1000-well goal. In 2005, Jars of Clay and K-LOVE conducted a similar event to launch B:WM’s 1000 Wells Project to help provide access to clean water to communities in sub-Saharan Africa, and with the completion of that campaign in sight, the groups convened again to help get that project to the finish line and set up Blood:Water’s next phase of operations.

Jars of Clay front man Dan Haseltine reflects, "This was one of the most amazing displays of generosity I have experienced. It is hard to imagine that a single day of radio can turn into clean water for thousands of Africans. This will save so many lives!"

Throughout the day, Jars of Clay shared the stories of individuals they have met through the years in sub-Saharan Africa: stories of dignity, hope, and truth, stories of communities impacted because of the generous support of donors around the world.

About Blood:Water Mission

Blood:Water Mission is a grassroots organization that empowers communities to work together against the HIV/AIDS and water crisis. Founded by the band, Jars of Clay, Blood:Water Mission began as a call to personalize the HIV/AIDS crisis in Africa. The members of the band were committed to share the often-untold stories: those of creative, compassionate, hard-working Africans bringing health, hope and healing into their respective communities.

About Jars of Clay:

Jars of Clay, made up of members Dan Haseltine (vocals), Charlie Lowell (keyboards), Steve Mason (guitars), and Matt Odmark (guitars), has sold more than six million albums, won three GRAMMYS, headlined thousands of sold-out shows and festivals, and successfully launched the Blood:Water Mission, a non-profit organization promoting clean blood and water in Africa. Since the band’s debut single, “Flood,” astonishingly topped both the mainstream and CCM charts, Jars of Clay has built an extraordinary career based on the uncompromising integrity of its music, worldview, and humanitarianism.
