VIDEO: Tai Anderson thanks Third Day fans for joining ONE

Third Day with ONE staff and volunteers

After 1,000 miles on the road with rock group and ONE supporters Third Day, fans in the Midwest got to hear some great tunes, while ONE volunteers got hundreds of new members to take action.

Over the course of three concerts in Ohio and Michigan, more than 500 people took the time to write letters to their senators in support of programs helping our brothers and sisters around the world, and more than 1,000 people answered the call from the stage to join our Mobile Action Team, agreeing to take action when it’s most needed.

It was so inspiring to meet all of the awesome Third Day fans who stepped up and joined our movement. Tai Anderson, Third Day’s bassist, recorded a special message for fans who took action:

In this wrap-up video see how Third Day speaks to fans about ONE’s issues from stage, pretty cool stuff!

Before each show, Tai and Rev. Nigel James, the band’s tour pastor, talked to the crowd about some good news for a change. They discussed the progress we’ve made recently in the fight against extreme poverty, such as the 51 million kids going to school for the first time in sub-Saharan Africa in the last 10 years, and the 670,000 HIV/AIDS infections prevented in kids between 2009 and 2012.
