ESSENTIAL RECORDS band THIRD DAY made a $20,000 donation from its COME TOGETHER FUND to WORLD VISION's HAITI EARTHQUAKE RELIEF FUND. The WORLD VISION fund was established immediately following the 7.0 earthquake that struck on TUESDAY (1/12).
In an open letter signed by all four members of the band and available on the band's website, THIRD DAY praises the ongoing work done by WORLD VISION and encourages its fans to give to the organization's work in dealing with this specific humanitarian crisis.
“We have seen firsthand the amazing work that WORLD VISION does around the world,” the letter reads. “They are first call responders to these kind of disasters and will immediately maximize our dollars to care for those suffering in this difficult time.”
“We would like our donation to serve as a challenge. We invite you, as THIRD DAY fans and a community of believers, to match our donation to help our brothers and sisters suffering in HAITI today.We hope that you will keep the people of HAITI in your prayers, but we also hope that you will be part of God’s answer to their prayers as well.”
