ESSENTIAL RECORDS band JARS OF CLAY Jars of Clay teamed up with EMF BROADCASTING Christian K-LOVE and AIR 1 radio stations to raise funds and awareness for the completion of BLOOD:WATER MISSION's "1000 WELLS PROJECT."
A day-long "WELL DONE CAMPAIGN' radiothon was held on TUESDAY, JUNE 8th and raised over $860,000. The donations will fund the construction of 95 water projects, leaving BLOOD:WATER MISSION only 15 wells short of its 1000 well goal.
"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!" said JARS OF CLAY frontman DAN HASELTINE.
In 2005, JARS OF CLAY and K-LOVE conducted a similar event to launch the "1000 WELLS PROJECT" to help provide access to clean water to communities in SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA. The groups convened again to bring project to the finish line and to set up the next phase of operations for BLOOD:WATER.
