Jars of Clay raising money for the Philippines with free song download

Christian rock band Jars of Clay are giving away one of their songs in an effort to raise money for relief efforts in the Philippines following the devastating Typhoon Haiyan.

"Fall Asleep", from their acclaimed album 'Inland' released in August of this year, is offered for free by the Grammy-Awards winning band on the website NoiseTrade.

Listeners are encouraged to leave a donation, with all the proceeds being used to support the Red Cross.

The official music video for the song was created in Manila, the capital city of the Philippines, and stars Filipino super-model and actress Rhian Ramos.

Dan Haseltine, lead vocalist of Jars of Clay, says, "By using the video and the song as a means to raise funds to help in the clean up and restoration efforts currently taking place in the Philippines, we felt it would be a wonderful way to respond in kind.

"We are hoping to raise $50,000 to help serve the amazing people of the Philippines and will be working with The Red Cross to ensure the funds are used properly and efficiently."
