Jars of Clay was among those who were recognized at the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute's Annual "Angels in Adoption" Gala, which was held in Washington, D.C., on Sept. 13. The band was one of four National "Angels in Adoption" and the more than 190 Congressional "Angels in Adoption" who were honored for their outstanding contributions toward the welfare of children in the U.S. foster care system and orphans around the globe, according to a press release.

Chosen from all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia, the Congressional "Angels" were selected by their respective members of congress for their exceptional work as adoption champions. National "Angels" are recognized for their adoption and foster care work in a broader scale, the release said.

In addition to Jars of Clay, the other National "Angels" recognized this year included First Lady Laura Bush, actress Victoria Rowell and the Sesame Workshop, which is the nonprofit organization behind programs like "Sesame Street" and "Dragon Tales." President George W. Bush served as Honorary Chair of this year's event, ABC journalist Tom Jarriel served as Master of Ceremonies and Jars of Clay provided entertainment for the invited guests and attendees.

The band was recognized for its Blood:Water Mission work in Africa, which they launched in early 2002. The first effort of this organization was the "1000 Wells Project," which has a goal of raising funds to build, rebuild and repair 1,000 wells in urban and rural areas of sub-Saharan Africa. To date, 42 wells have been constructed, bringing clean water to more than 34,000 people. For more information, visit www.bloodwatermission.com
