ONE Nashville walks a mile for water

World Water Day Jamie

ONE volunteers in Nashville joined partner agency Blood:Water Mission earlier this month for their annual Water:Walk in honor of World Water Day. Tennesseans gathered to walk a mile in the women’s shoes who carry water to their families in Africa every day.

Participants started downtown, carrying plastic jugs and buckets, and walked a mile to the river. They then filled their containers and carried them a mile back in silence remembering the women and children across the world for whom this is a daily task.

Among the volunteers was Jars of Clay lead singer and Blood:Water Mission founder Dan Haseltine, who stopped by the ONE table before the walk to sign a letter to Representative Cooper urging him to protect lifesaving programs in this year’s budget.
