    http://www.bloodwatermission.com/aids Over 33 million people in the world are infected with HIV/AIDS, and 2/3 of them live in Sub-Sarahan Africa. But because of the barriers of education and understanding, many of us don't know anyone affected by this disease. For those living with HIV/AIDS, drinking contaminated water opens the door to opportunistic infections in an already weakened immune system. This direct link between AIDS and water launched the dual purpose of Blood:Water Mission: clean blood, free from HIV/AIDS and clean water, free from disease. While there is no one-size-fits-all solution to AIDS, we are working through our partners to address the local gaps in HIV/AIDS programs implementing effective and sustainable solutions including education, treatment and support. Through our partnership in several communities, we have been able to walk alongside many living positively and get to know their stories. We now invite you to know them too. Here are a few inspiring people we've met along the way that we hope will help you be able to say "I Know Someone." http://www.bloodwatermission.com/i-know-someone.php

        Today, I Coffee Ambushed my friends at Blood:Water Mission, a cause my wife and I've deeply supported for 8 years. Blood:Water Mission helps to build clean water wells, rainwater catchment tanks, and provide HIV/AIDS and Malaria medication to people all over Africa, many in coffee-producing communities. The guys in Jars of Clay founded Blood:Water Mission in 2003, after a trip to Malawi, and since then, they've partnered with more over 800 communities in Africa, providing life-saving water and health needs for over 500,000 people in 13 different countries. Along the way the 1000 Wells Project expanded holistically to include a variety of clean water solutions and sanitation and hygiene training, as well as funding health clinics, community health workers, and support groups, which help in the prevention, treatment, care and support of communities affected by AIDS, incorporating HIV/AIDS-specific programming alongside ongoing water programming. This past May, April and I joined the organization in Nashville to celebrate their 1000th well finished. Today, I had help from local coffee professional Jackson O'Brien from Bongo Java, and used the Batdorf & Bronson Guatemala Finca El Valle. So chocolatey good. Special thanks to Mike Lenda for setting up the Ambush within.
