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.

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.
