For years, Third Day has worked with me and the ONE Campaign promoting awareness and advocacy for global HIV/AIDS and extreme poverty. They are a shining example in the Music Community of how artists can educate and activate their fanbase to do good in the world.
Recently, I ran into them at Nashville4Africa concert in Nashville, Tennessee. It was so great to see them and to hear about their latest work.
They have partnered with Land of a Thousand Hills Coffee, a Rwandan coffee project. Their theme is "Drink Coffee. Do Good."
If you're interested to learn more about this fair trade coffee company out of Atlanta, please go to www.drinkcoffeedogood.com. Your purchase of this fair trade coffee supports living wages for the Bukonya community. As they note, Rwandan coffee communities are becoming a vibrant picture of opportunity and sustainability.
In July 2008, Senator Frist hosted a bi-partisan delegation with the ONE Campaign traveling to the coffee fields of Rwanda. There he witnessed the uplifting of women and their families out of poverty through the sustainable jobs created by the coffee industry. This is a great way to support their work.
We encourage you to check out their website today.
