The band Anberlin (Universal Republic) has welcomed Land of a Thousand Hills Coffee onto their 5-week Fall 2010 US tour, in an initiative to raise money for orphan homes in coffee farming communities in Haiti and Rwanda.
Stephen Christian, singer of Anberlin and founder of Faceless International explained why he has extended the invite to Land of a Thousand Hills Coffee:  “For me Land of a Thousand Hills Coffee is the ideal, not only do they produce some of the best coffee but the logic behind the organization is solid and uplifting. Sustainable living for small communities is the future for developing impoverished countries around the world, and a sound way to fight human trafficking, a cause that is near to my heart.   I will continue to support 1000 Hills in my personal life by buying their coffee and remain a strong supporter of the cause throughout my professional career as a musician.”

The Drink Coffee.  Do Good. tour team will travel 15,000 miles in just under 45 days this fall, hitting 33 major cities in both the US and Canada.

“It is our goal with the tour to raise enough funds to build-out at least 10 homes for orphans in Bukonya, Rwanda, as well as to fund the construction of a clean water coffee washing station in Haiti,” explains Danny Nicoletto, tour manager for Land of a Thousand Hills. “Haiti has the climate to produce some excellent coffee, but there are several care needs that need to be met since the earthquake.  The time is now to be involved there.  We are really grateful to be a part of this tour and look forward to telling our story to Anberlin’s audience.”

Land of a Thousand Hills Coffee will be be raising funds for this project through mobile giving.  By TXTing “GOOD” to 50555, a donation of $5 is made to the Do Good Initiative. As a thank you from Thousand Hills and Stephen Christian, once the donation is made, a link is sent with a free download of “Summer Tongues” by Anchor & Braille (side project of Stephen of Anberlin).

The tour will feature opening bands Civil Twilight and The Crash Kings and will promote Anberlin’s new release “Dark is the Way, Light is a Place” out now on Universal Republic.  Land of a Thousand Hills Coffee is looking forward to keeping everyone well caffeinated and hope to change lives in Rwanda and Haiti.  DRINK COFFEE.  DO GOOD.

Heaven's Metal

Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
