Heather and I have supported Blood Water Mission for well over two years in hopes of making some sort of a difference to the world we live in. Blood Water Mission began as a charity by the band Jars of Clay in 2002. It aims to promote clean blood and water efforts throughout Africa, hoping to curb the current aids crisis that is sweeping through the continent. Recently, the non-profit organization began an effort to build 1000 wells in 1000 African communities.
Bono, of U2 had this to say about BWM:
As a fan, I don't think anyone has had a bigger voice than the activists in Jars of Clay.
If in fact we do receive a tax refund this year, I plan on donating toward this cause. Although this world feels hard to make a big difference in, donating to BWM may just provide a glimmer of hope for those in need.
