SEATTLE, WA...December 5, 2008...This week Hawk Nelson is celebrating the launch of their newly designed website (, which focuses on their "One Little Miracle" campaign. The band is also thrilled as their most recent project Hawk Nelson is My Friend received a GRAMMY® nomination for "Best Recording Packaging." The GRAMMY® nomination goes to the designer Don Clark who created the packaging concept for the album. Hawk Nelson's album design is nominated along with the recording packaging for "Death Magnetic" (Metallica), "Nouns" (No Age), "Radio Retaliation" (Thievery Corporation) and "Summer Rains" (The Ditty Bops).

Debuting in September was Hawk's "One Little Miracle" campaign, which involves multiple facets partnering with various organizations to urge others to reach outside and be that "one little miracle" that can change someone's life. The moniker for the program is based of the band's Top 3 CHR single "One Little Miracle" which is also available as an EP on iTunes featuring a special performance with Amy Grant.

A part of this initiative includes Hawk Nelson partnered with TOMS shoes, who provide shoes for children in poverty stricken areas with the motto "One for One." For the band's effort, every pair of shoes purchased via Hawk Nelson's website, TOMS donates a pair of shoes to someone in Haiti as the band's ongoing involvement with the Hands & Feet Orphanage. Coming in 2009 will be a Hawk Nelson TOMS shoe designed by the band.

As one of the features on the new site, fans can watch Hawk Nelson's famed Vodcasts. The newly posted video from Sacramento, CA shows the heart of the band as they outreached to Ronald McDonald homes this fall in the REVOLVE tour cities. After the last REVOLVE date of the year this weekend the band will be back on the road in 2009 for the Winter Jam Tour Spectacular beginning January 8 in Roanoke, VA. For complete dates visit the Winter Jam official site.
