iceland spring
Iceland Spring Water....

The spring is situated on the outskirts of Reykjavík in a protected nature reserve called "Heidmörk". Over 150 acres around the source is closed from unauthorized entry and the entire park is fenced to keep out animals. Iceland Spring originates in the mountains high above Heidmörk as rain or snow. Through inert layers of lava rock, it trickles deep into the ground, picking up a minimum amount of soluble minerals. The water then collects in a large underground river running under the reserve's lava soil, and surfaces in intermittent springs.

The location has been carefully selected for its’ isolation, soil material, amount of precipitation and permeability, to ensure product quality and consistency. A borehole was sunk on a hill above the spring to tap the water at depth, which then runs through a private stainless steel pipeline from the spring directly to the bottling plant. Nothing is added to Iceland Spring and nothing is taken away

Dear Friend,

I would like to ask you for support for the Jazz for Peace™ mission:

1. Continue our benefit concert series. 

This acclaimed series of over 700 events and counting has proven to have a positive impact on our communities. By helping outstanding organizations get publicity and awareness, new partnerships and sponsors and all of the other things listed on our Empowerment Tree (www.jazzforpeace.org/jfptree.htm), we are helping them to be more sustainable and thereby have a more positive impact on the communities they serve. Funds donated are used for transportation, artist fees, lodging, equipment rental, and other miscellaneous costs that such performances incur.

2. Expand performances to other cities, states and countries. 

While there is no specific set amount of concerts per year and the amount is usually based on the quality of applications, your contributions help us to “help those who are helping others” by offering our Benefit Concert Series to outstanding organizations in need across the country. Here are the testimonials from our Benefit Concert Series Recipients - http://www.jazzforpeace.org/testimonials.html Funds donated are used for transportation, artist fees, lodging, equipment rental, and other miscellaneous costs that such performances incur.

3. Bring jazz back into the schools and expose Americans to one of its greatest, yet often overlooked art forms.

By helping with the musicians fees with your donations we are able to bring music back into schools that currently are without music because they do not have the funding. http://www.jazzforpeace.org/educationseries.html  By doing so the opportunity has been created not only to stimulate the intellect but to have a profoundly positive influence on the life of a child.

4. Donate musical instruments to underprivileged children and schools.

The amount of instruments that we donate per year varies with how many instruments are donated to our program. However when an instrument is donated we pay for the repair of that instrument and the transportation of that instrument into the hands of the children. http://www.jazzforpeace.org/instdon.htm 

In Summary: Our fund raising to support these programs has a positive effect on the hundreds of outstanding organizations we support, along with the children we educate with our performances in the schools, and the children in need that we help with our instrument donation program.
